  1. Do you have it for iPad?

  2. Dean Turnbloom says

    I bought the software but was unable to download it. I paid for it with Paypal. How can I get the software?

    • K.M. Weiland | @KMWeiland says

      Dean, I’ve sent you several emails about this in response your initial emails. Are you not receiving any of them?

      • Dean Turnbloom says

        I haven’t received any emails from you, and have checked my spam too. My email is

        • K.M. Weiland | @KMWeiland says

          Okay, I’ve just sent you a test email, without any links or codes, in case they were somehow triggering your spam filter. If that works, we’ll go from there.

  3. Dean Turnbloom says

    😟 Sadly, no I have not

  4. Dean Turnbloom says

    I have dropbox, if you know how to use that. I’ve used it, but it’s been quite some time. I’m not sure how it works, but I have received files before in that manner.

    • Dean Turnbloom says

      I sent you a Dropbox File request. Perhaps we can transfer the software that way? Awfully sorry about the trouble this is causing you.

      • K.M. Weiland | @KMWeiland says

        Just sent the file via Dropbox. Let me know if it doesn’t work for you. I’m so sorry this has been such a rigmarole for you!

  5. Getting updates seems to be a challenge. I believe there is a more recent version than the one I have installed. I’ve registered the software but I’ll be darned if I can figure out where to download updates.
    OYNW Version 1.94

  6. Hi. Do you have a version compatible with Mojave now?

    • K.M. Weiland | @KMWeiland says

      The program works on Mojave but with one slight glitch: it won’t nest scenes in the scene list section. If you’d like to purchase now so you can start using it right away, we will notify you when we’ve fixed this in an update. You’ll just need to be sure to register your email when you first start up the program.

      • Hi KM. Thanks for the quick reply. Do you have a timeline on when the glitch will be patched? Also does it have a publish feature like what we have in Scrivener? Thanks.

        • K.M. Weiland | @KMWeiland says

          Timing is tentative, but we’d like to have it done by May.

          You can export certain parts of the program as txt files (and print the entirety as pdfs), but you cannot “publish” the information as an e-book, like you can in Scrivener.

  7. Does it work with scrivener? I know Aeon Timeline can use scrivener keywords, so I was curious if that was possible with this.

    • K.M. Weiland | @KMWeiland says

      You can export some of the sections for use in Scrivener, but that’s the extent of the compatibility.

  8. I would love to purchase the outline material but I have Chrome–which I know won’t support the files. I need to buy a new computer. Can I make the purchase and then transfer the material to the new PC after? The computer would be a Christmas present so I won’t have it when I pay for the outline software.

    • K.M. Weiland | @KMWeiland says

      This post is from last year’s sale. This year’s sale will begin tomorrow and run through Cyber Monday. As you saw, the program only works on Windows and Mac. However, if you purchase during the sale, the program will be available to you at any time to put on as many computers as you like. You’ll just need to save the download link.

  9. Hi there,

    I was wondering if you guys are still planning to release an online version of the outlining software?

    I really like the program but it would be great to have an online version as currently working across multiple devices is very clunky and can only be done through the export/import functionality (and this requires the deletion of the project to be imported)

    • K.M. Weiland | @KMWeiland says

      Yes, we’re hoping to release a subscription-based, online version of the program later this year, if all goes well.
