Utility Update Released!

Download for Windows Download for Mac Hello storytellers, It's been a while since we've released an update. In fact, we had originally planned on not releasing any more updates to Campfire Pro, and focusing exclusively on the development of our up-and-coming software Campfire Blaze. However, after a discourse with our users, we realized that certain QoL fixes were necessary for the current version of Pro. Introducing the Utility Update: Added the Utilities window, accessible from Campfire -> Utilities, which is designed to help users fix any bugs or issues they're encountering with Campfire Added support for fully offline use, which will be enabled automatically for all users Added ability to add Encyclopedia entries to Relationship Webs Updated Relationships UI to open up more screen space Added a short "where did you hear about us?" questionnaire that runs the first time a new user opens Campfire Added a "Cautious Mode" preference that, if enabled, will cause Campfire to display a confirmation prompt if you click 'Cancel' in the Edit Character, Edit Event, or Edit Location windows Added Village as a location and map type Made Event names, and the associated trait values, appear when they are hovered over on the trait graph in the Character Arcs view Added preference for default location transparency Added ability to delete panels from the "Show Hidden Panels" window in the Characters view to get rid of those pesky misspelled panels Fixed bug where you couldn't drag a timeline event and scroll at the same time Fixed bug where creating character groups while using filters could cause errors Fixed bug where character page refreshed after removing an image from a panel We hope you all are enjoying using Campfire.
