Let’s start the BETA test of Writing Outliner Word Add-in!

Posted in: Book writing software, Version History by Edwin on March 15, 2010

Hi Folks,

Finally, I can start the beta test of Writing Outliner Word Add-in today!

What you can do with this version?

  • Project-centric writing, keep all files together;
  • Use the Project Manager Outliner to outline book-length documents, each outline item is associated with a Word document.
  • Tabbed document editing – edit multiple Word document at the same time;
  • Instant, Google-alike full text search, find any documents in the project, you can search by text, title, status, label, tags, notes, synopsis, or match all these fields!
  • Document tagging and search by document tags, for example, search by “tag:MyTagA or tag:MyTagB
  • Attach icons (status and label) to documents and search by the icons, for example,  you can specify the status icon of certain documents as “Needs Review”, and when you want to see only those documents, all you need to do is to  input “status:needs review” in the search box.
  • Import existing documents (supports doc, docx, RTF, text, wri, all file formats that supported by MS Word).
  • Embedded File Explorer tab for viewing and importing files in your harddisk, or  exporting files from a Writing Outliner project to disk.
  • Drafts compilation and branch compilation, the Drafts folder or a specific document branch will be merged for output.
  • And so on…

You can see some screenshots in my previous blog post.

And I hope you think this is a good start!

Update 1

I have just uploaded a new version which solves the following two problems:

  1. Error message is displayed when opening the sample project: “Wrong Project Property: Modified (Last Modified Time)”;
  2. The error report technical information does not contain the most important info for locating the source of the problem.

Sorry for the problem, please download it again!
