I continue to use Ecco with the EccoExtension addon as my workhorse day to day outliner, with Bonsai for my daily outline because it syncs with my Android devices.

Eccoext works perfectly in both windows and Linux under Wine (Crossover) emulation. Very little that it can’t do for me except perform an adequate paste of my finished outlines into Microsoft Word or other software. 

I continue to play with Cherrytree, Notecase Pro, Rightnote, MyInfo, and even Treepad, because part of what I want to be able to do is to be able to publish some of my outlines as a two-pane web page with navigation outline on the left.  For that purpose the two-pane outliners work best, but otherwise I like the single-pane outliners. 

One of my great frustrations in my crimping is that I think Infoqube has the ability to do most of what Ecco does for me, it’s in development, and it has better pasting into other programs.  However try as I have I can’t wade through all the features that are superfluous to outlining to get Infoqube set up in a way that I can understand.  I keep looking for the magic bullet to do that but can’t figure it out.  Maybe at some point I’ll start a thread on “how to set up Infoqube for outlining” (or maybe there’s a way to set up a configuration file that can be shared among those of us who use it for outlining and not calendaring and the other stuff).  I also am doing my best to convert to Linux, and I haven’t been able to get infoqube to run there.

Anyway thanks very much for this forum and the ideas I pick up here.

Hi cicerosc,

Can you share what feature is superfluous ? Looking at the Grid menu: display mode, context parents, styles, labels, sort, filter are all essential. Next, the Column menu has show / hide, alignment, wordwrap, color and sort commands. Finally, the Item menu has insert, move, expand / collapse, split, join, font, color, favorite, lock, hyperlink. Essential stuff, no ?

Just trying to help and understand

Good idea, either here or on the IQ community forum

Pierre:

Thanks for your comment.  So as not to overload this forum with detail that most would not be interested in, I typed a lengthy response on your forum here:

Thanks again for your reply to my comment above.

Pierre, I just read your extended comments re IQ and can totally relate. Based on Jon’s recommendation I downloaded the latest version of IQ with the hope of doing a plain single pane outline a la tkOutline or PC Outline. I have no Ecco experience and couldn’t figure out how to even get started.

Rick and cicerosc

Thanks to both of you. Your comments as “new” users is invaluable. Expect an improved new user experience in the next version including:
- Home Page not shown by default (think of it as Chrome’s new page screen)
- Grids shown by default at the top of the screen, in tabs
- New Grid tab

Pierre
