Hi, Is the hierarchy you are referring to parent and child events? If so we agree that the ability for children to inherit roles from their parents would be useful and it is on our list of features to add in the future. Jess
Exactly, Jess, parent and child events! But I think it would be more useful to inherit upwards: the roles added to a child event should bubble up to the parent events. So that when I add Princess Leia, Darth Vader, C-3PO, and R2-D2 to the first scene, and Luke, Aunt Beru, and Uncle Lars to the 2nd, all seven characters are added to the enclosing A New Hope event. As a matter of fact, it would be most useful to have an inherit/bubble function in both directions, controlled by the user. After all, I might write a chapter and know in advance in takes place entirely on Tatooine, but discover as I write that some of the scenes contain Luke, and others R2-D2. In creating this chapter, it would be ideal to set the location at chapter level, and inherit that down. But characters would more ideally be set at scene level, and bubble up. In other words, inherit-down and bubble-up should ideally be user-controlled functions per type of role.
