Reassuring comment, an all-in-one package cannot supersede the academic workflow I now have in mac. The specific issue we need to address is that Tinderbox is the only software I now that provides tools for conceptualizing and organizing material from a database (DT for example) so that it can be used for writing (Scrivener). There is no time for the learning curve.

As for CRIMP, what I am complaining about is the lack of software in the category of Tinderbox, just the opposite of CRIMP.
