If you design, develop, or architect Web sites, then OverSite is the app you've been waiting for... even if you didn't know it! OverSite lets you rapidly develop your web site structures, generate graphical site maps, and test your structure's basic interactivity.

OverSite's site structure editor allows you to quickly lay out the sections and pages that make up your site. These sections and pages can easily be assigned attributes, such as user-entry form, external site content, multi-page template, and password-protected. Modifying pages and sections is a breeze, thanks to the editor's drag-and-drop capabilities and editing tools.

OverSite also automatically generates graphical site maps of your Web site. No longer do you need to waste hours with an image editor trying to draw out your site's structure--only waste more time whenever you need to make a change. OverSite draws your map for you, and automatically updates any changes you make.

OverSite also allows you to test your site structure's interactivity model with its Click-Thru view. Your structure is converted into a simple, live Web site, complete with a basic navigation bar that lets you click through sections. Now, you can see how easy your navigation will be to use before you build out your site.

Once you've completed your site structure, OverSite will help you hit the ground running in actually creating the site. Simply export your structure, and OverSite will save out a filesystem consisting of the sections and pages you've created. You can also import existing web sites into OverSite, letting you see in one glance the entire structure of that site.

Here are some key features of "OverSite":
Easy Editing
Quickly define your site's sections and pages. Modify their names and attributes. Rearrange them with OverSite's drag-and-drop functionality. Take advantage of Oversite's multiple undo levels.
Automatic Site Map Generation
Let OverSite automatically create your site's graphical sitemap. Adjust the sitemap's page and section fonts, icon sizes, horizontal and vertical spacings, and three-dimension skew. Let OverSite auto-number your sections and pages.
Interaction Testing
Open OverSite's Click-Thru window and test your site structure's interactivity.
Importing and Exporting of Site Structures
Let OverSite import your existing Web site so you can view at a glance the site's structure. Export the structures you've created with OverSite into actual Web site sections and pages, so you can hit the ground running with your site development.

Improved undo/redo support.
Improved editing tools.
