Hi,
I'm using Scapple to map the interactions and relations between people and groups in my story. (see attachment) Right now it means that I have to create two connections and an extra note to have a labeled connection.

How about having the possibility to "label" a connection that then creates the same thing :
* floating text attached to the connection
* the position of the text along the connection can be changed
* if the orientation of the connection changes , the text moves too

I second this request. Having labels on connections establishes relationships between ideas. The workflow of adding notes to the connecting lines is less than ideal and can cause issues when importing into Scrivener.

Please do not post "votes" for features, this is against the forum rules. Keith will decide whether or not to include a feature based on its merits, not how many votes it has. Thanks. :)

I know I tread on dangerous ground here, but I don't think the response was a "vote". At least not in the obnoxious
+1 bro!

that we normally see. The inclusion of a rational "why" make this more of an "ancillary supporting deposition of usefulness" which many of the long support/wish-list threads imply is an acceptable form of support.

I think I was just supportive of someone. What is wrong with me? I need a nap.

Well all right, it isn’t a “+1”. :) But this has been discussed several times in the past (here and here). Basically it’s not an easy thing to add, the whole framework doesn’t support the notion, but it is on the list of things to consider for the future.

As to the requested feature... I could care less. I just thought the post was not the vote and was employing "mediocre civil unrest" at the idea that it was considered such

:P

Take that!

I am new here, but from what I can see, Connection Labels have been added after all in version 1.3 of Scapple.

At least they have if you run on Mac.

Is there any plan to do the same thing on PC or is it still stuck on "Version: 1.0.0.0 - 08 Oct 2013" indefinitely?

Thanks

Yes, we will be updating Scapple for Windows once Scrivener 3 is done.
