User interface enhancements of the upcoming new version

Posted in: Outliner Software by Edwin on May 10, 2017

Before I say something else, let me show you two screenshots.

1 – The more intuitive, re-organized “Project Manager” pane. You know, I often receive emails from WritingOutliner users asking about “where is my project file?

2 – The new dedicated Search tab (the search results display will no longer interfere the project outline display):

MS Word document full text seach - addin

If you are an existing WritingOutliner user you must have noticed other enhancements, but please noted this is a work in progress.

If you are familiar with WritingOutliner, you must know that WritingOutliner didn’t get enough updates in recent years, despite that have shown several plans, but that doesn’t produce good results (including the WordOutliner project).

Good news?

So what good news I can tell you this time? There are other reasons I don’t want to go into details now, but the failed attempts in the past years mostly because I myself did NOT use WritingOutliner itself. But now that has changed. That’s why the real software updates is happening now 🙂 And yes, 64bit will be supported too.


  1. Keep at it Edwin. Looking forward to a successful outcome!

    I like the program except for one thing. It has no key word management.

    It needs a dropdown box which can be populated with keywords. It is useless to me without strong key word support.

    @Red, would you explain a little bit on the key word management you are suggesting? Mainly what’s the purpose of it? In other words, what problem it solves? Thanks.
