Story Lite notes and storyboard Rotating Header Image

Technical details

This application is a zoomable user interface – ZUI – adapted to work with a set of rich text editors which can handle text, formatting, and in Story Turbo, images too.

It is like a portable desktop, in that a set of open documents can be saved all together into one file.

The file has the .sto file extension.

The conception and design is by Geoff Davis, who has a Masters in Electronic Arts by research from Middlesex University UK in 2003-2004. In his research Geoff produced a working ZUI (in ActionScript) in this which was more aimed at encyclopedias or visual display, and used multiple levels to control the zoom. The dissertations will be online soon.
