Manuskript is a tool for writers with special support for building novels using the snowflake method (which stresses the importance of design). In addition to the text of the novel itself, Manuskript can store writer's notes on characters, plots, and the world in which the story takes place. All these notes can be cross-linked with each other and with the text of the story to help maintain consistency and continuity. Cross-links can also be used to generate a graphical Story Line view of the work in progress. Using the Outliner view, authors are able to see and rearrange the chapters and scenes that they have written thus far and create placeholders to indicate sections that still need to be written. Manuskript also includes a Focus Mode where the editor occupies the entire screen. Users can optionally configure a writing goal in Focus Mode, either a time or a word count, and Manuskript will not allow them to leave the editor until this goal has been completed. The Download section of the website contains installers for Windows and Linux systems.
