Now I am writing a super long novels, the novel there are about hundreds of the characters, the role of the backup has thousands of, so that each character's playing time, date of birth, date of death, even the date of the event, I need to be careful.
So I need to add a time axis function, before I use the timeline this software project, but the software at the time of processing large data, very not friendly, very card first, then the label sorting not freely adjust, can't keep on the right side down the stretch, some setting is not friendly, also does not have the complete Chinese, and are not compatible and scrivener.

I hope that scrivener's developers will consider this advice, after all, the timeline function is very important for a novel.

Have you tried Aeon Timeline? It integrates with Scrivener, and has many features for tracking events and characters. I do not know what its Chinese localisation is like though, or if it has one.

It is not easy for Scrivener to have features like this. It is a very big task, and would be like merging two programs into one.

Thank you. I'll try, but I'd prefer scrivener to integrate this functionality, because the timeline is important
