What are people saying about Contour

Tom Maynard Unreadable screen shots and a video of how to install??? Plus no free trial. If this thing works as badly as its marketing, fuhgeddabouddit!.

FERON JEROME This software is there Multilingual (French)?

Sally Marciniak Two things:
1. @ Tom Maynard, go to the website. You can download a trial there.

2. It's kind of confusing, but Contour is for writing a movie screenplay, not a novel. This is not evident from the description given here on Bits.

Mariner Software Hi Tom-
There are several screenshots and online video tutorials on our web site here...


You can download a trial copy here...

Hi Feron-
Sorry, Contour is only available in English currently.

Hi Sally-
While it's true that Contour is a great tool for examining a screenplay, we have many "other non-screenwriters" using Contour to develop an effective story from scratch. Screenplay...Novel...TV Movie...anything that demands full story development. Novels demand a much more intensive system than Contour, however to lay out the basic story for a novel, Contour would definitely get you further faster than not using it.

Thank you.

Marshall Brown I guess there are more similarities than differences but why does the BDJ site and Mariner site only talk about "story" and the user guide seems focused on "screen plays"

1.) I'm not sure I'm following you with this question but you are welcome to test it out by downloading our trial copy here...

2.) Are you referring to Contour?

riad af Hi, sorry for troubling you, the question was intended to "7SpeedReading" program and was misplaced here

Stefan Hauber Website says, Countour v2 for Windows will be published late 2019: So if purchasing now, will this be for v2, or is v2 free for today's buyers, whenever it will be published?

What's the regular usual upgrade price from v1 to v2 of Contour for Windows?
Dec 14 2019 at 2:12pm Copy Link
Mariner Software Sorry, I'll inform Marketing that's still on the web site. I would guess it will be more like Q2 2020. We do have a 90 day window policy with customers who purchase before a new major version comes out. If a customer purchases when 90 days of the release date of a new major release, the customer will get the upgrade for free. Normal upgrade price is $19.95.

Gary Smith How up-to-date is the User Guide? It does not appear to have been updated since the days of Vista (mentions XP and Vista only, but nothing about Windows 7, which is the minimum in the BitsDuJour offer details). I am curious if the program will still work on Windows XP? Is the program a 32-bit or 64-bit program?

The User Guide also mentions exporting to Montage, which has been discontinued.

The user guide for Contour looks like it was started from a Montage User Guide, and was not fully developed for Contour specifically. When can users expect to see an updated User Guide?

The User Guide has more information on developing the story's characters than it does to explain the software itself. If the User Guide covers everything in the program, then it must not be much more than help tips and spaces to fill in to get an outline.

I could not locate a full Changelog. The page for the program has a tab for What's New - macOS, but the changes do not indicate for which version number of the software they are for. Is there a full Changelog for the program for both macOS and MS Windows?

Aside from the Testimonials, can you cite any screenplays that were developed by Contour and there be third-party online references that endorse the use of the product to create those screenplays?

Even though there is minimal writing in Contour compared to the full story, are there any editing tools, such as Spellcheck, or even Search and Replace, Undo, etc.? If I am presenting what I have developed in Contour to get approval to develop the full story, at least I would want everything to be clean with no misspellings or typos.

Since version 2 is a major release, what significant additions or changes will be made?

I notice the release date for Version 2 is now set for the first half of 2020. Likely the 90-day free-update window will pass before version 2 is released. As a result, today's purchase plus the upgrade price will be the same as purchasing when version 2 is released. The Trial will allow users to see what the program does currently, and if interested after the Trial, they can still purchase version 2 at the full price when it comes out. That indicates that purchasing today is a gamble in savings. If you were offering a 65-75% off the price (as often is the case on BitsDuJour) or guaranteeing that users will get version 2 regardless of when it is released, you would have a better assurance that your program will get into more hands. If it is as good as you claim, you will then have advocates spreading the word. If you can't get your program out there in the first place, you lose out on that free publicity. From the testimonials, there are users out there, but for many, Contour is not well known. My suggestion is an idea to help change that.

Finally, what is planned for future versions after version 2?

Thanking you in advance for your forthcoming reply.
