Writing Outliner Word addin will not get in your way when you don’t need it

Posted in: Word addin by Edwin on March 10, 2010

Just now I received an email from someone,  he concerned once Writing Outliner Word add-in is installed, will it get in his way when he is not working on documents that need Writing Outliner Word addin.

His original question:

Your outliner looks very promising, but I’m wondering if after installation Word will always start with it or is it possible to have the options for a clean startup and a startup with the outliner? I’m new to Word addins.

The answeris: No, Writing Outliner will not get in  your way when you don’t need it.

Look the screenshot below, it only shows a small vertical strip on the left of your Microsoft Word main window.

Word addin - Writing Outliner is disabled

Why this UI design instead of using a Ribbon item (or a toolbar/menu item in pre-2007 versions of Microsoft Word)?

Because you can recall it with just one-click!

Don’t like my idea? Tell me please, my mind is always open, you know, I’m not a writer and I am trying to write an all-in-one writing tool for writers, so my mind needs to be wide open to get ideas from you 😉
