Writing Outliner minor upgrade – version

Posted in: Outliner Software, Version History by Edwin on July 19, 2011

In the past few days I’ve been working on improving the document loading and switching speed, and introduced a new problem in yesterday’s release, so here is the quick fix before the next major release.

Fixed problems:

  • A problem introduced yesterday – after the documents are imported, if you don’t close the File Explorer Tab and edit the documents, changes might not be saved.
  • You might see the “SQLite Error 10 – disk I/O error” message after your windows system is resuming from sleep mode.

Speed Improvements:

  • Loading/switching documents are now faster, especially in MS Word 2007/2010.
  • Switching between documents that are marked as ‘track changes’ are much much faster now!
  • Highlighting the matches in a large document in a Writing Outliner project is now faster after doing a Full-Text Search.

    I would say this hasn’t been fixed. I downloaded & started using the program this morning and imported lots of files to the trial version and then did 5 HOURS of work. When I clicked out to another folder and went back to my document, it was all lost – about 2000 precious words. I’m pretty devastated and won’t be using Writing Outliner again.

  4. @Gabby,
    I sincerely apologize. I’ve planed to change the underlying design of Writing Outliner to complete solve this problem.

    Check my latest blog post for the plan: http://writingoutliner.com/writing-software/blog/about-to-fundamentally-revamp-writing-outliner/
