ProjectFolders Pre-beta demo video is now available

Posted in: Outliner Software by Edwin on March 27, 2013

I’m writing ProjectFolders – the succeed product of Writing Outliner, due to reasons I stated in this blog (new data storage, improve stability and performance, etc).

I know many of your have been waiting for news about ProjectFolders, and I’m behind my schedule, and I apology, but today I finally have something to show:

This video demo shows what I have right now.

ProjectFolders differs from Writing Outliner in the following manners:

  • All data are open – your files are stored as they are in your hard disk. 
  • Your document are safe, because ProjectFolders will not alter your documents at all – except renaming, copying and moving them across your project folders.
  • ProjectFolders is much faster, because of the new design.
  • ProjectFolders will open your existing Writing Outliner projects.
  • Other differences? You figure them out in the video, I don’t want to let this list grow too much, or you won’t read, will you? 😉

Questions and comments? Why not? That’s why I’m posting the news here in the blog.

And here is a screenshot, but I encourage you to watch the video demo.

    What about the corkboard?
    Why is only the left pane enough? Left and right pane more or less centered the view on the content.
    I like the project folders idea though.

  2. @Mark, the ‘Meta data’ in ProjectFolders shows in the sub-pane of the left pane.
    Corkboard will still be there in ProjectFolders (at a little later stage).

    Hello, I was just wondering how the update was coming along.

  8. Hi Jimmy,
    Thanks for asking. I know it’s delayed, but there is another project that I have to make it out of beta as soon as possible, after that I’ll have time to continue this one…

    the new version looks interesting edwin. does no longer using the sql database mean that the documents are directly accessible from the folders that they are stored without needing to export them from word outliner first?

  10. Exactly!

    Hi Edwin

    Any news on this will be ready? Could I possibly be a beta tester? Can’t wait to get cracking with it!

    Any news?

    Writing Outliner has been utterly broken since I upgraded to 64bit Office so I’m certainly looking forward to this.

  14. Allan, I’ve posted the news in my latest blog post. Thanks for your patience…
