Hi, I also was considering Writing Outliner for Word (as well as Scrivener), but as an academic found the same limitations. We simply need Mendeley or Zotero integration, at least those in the biological sciences.

I started using UltraRecall in a similar was to Writing Outliner, with embedded word documents. It is described in the post on page 3 here: http://www.outlinersoftware.com/topics/viewt/3338/10

There is a quick two step process to export merged documents, but it works fine with Mendeley, thus solving the maddening problem of citations across multiple chapters or documents to be merged. Let me know if you have any questions.

Best, /Pavi
