Many thanks for the prompt replies. Great suggestions. Unfortunately I don’t have a Mac, so I can only explore the PC suggestions. As I’m really pressed for time, I will probably try the most intuitive software suggested, which seems to be Scrivener.

Later on I’ll try to come back to ConnectedText and Emacs and Vim. I’ve tried ConnectedText in the past, but for some reason I couldn’t get my head around it. Similarly, Emacs and Vim seem like requiring a steep learning curve. I don’t have a techie background, so I’m coming at it with more of a humanities-type of brain.

I might give Sense another try as well. I have a feeling that I haven’t quite grasped its full potential.

This is the problem with us artsy types: if the manual and help files (or even the website) are too technical in language, it becomes a turn-off… Maybe that’s why I never mastered UltraRecall…
