Scrivener 3 now has a single pane columnar outlining mode. See page 181, Figure 8.23 of the manual for a screenshot of what it looks like.

There’s no “outlines within table cells” mode like you’re thinking of, but Scrivener does support nesting, so you can have different index cards that can represent different outlines, which might be close enough. You wouldn’t be able to see the actual content of the outlines in index card mode though.

It’s in beta now for Windows, with the full Windows release slated for early in the new year. I haven’t tried the beta and can’t vouch for how good it is (it’s a complete rewrite from scratch for Windows), but the Mac version is solid.
