I own licences for both SheetPlanner and OmniOutliner. In my view they are both excellent at what they do best. But what they do best are two different things. I would not for example want to use SP for outlining a novel or a long feature article (together with all sorts of annotations) prior to putting the outline into Scrivener, Ulysses or Word. I would also not want to use OO to plan the scheduling of the writing of that novel, chapter by chapter, or that feature article, section by section (or for that matter, the timeline of a fictional narrative or a factual argument). But I might well use SP for such purposes.
