Hi guys, I’m Edwin Yip, developer of DocxManager here.

Thanks @Amontillado for mentioning DocxManager here and thanks for all the input/comments by everybody.

The way I see it, getting feedback or from the actually user and prospects is the first step to getting a software being enhanced.

Thanks @Listerene for his criticism. I confirm what he said is true - I did receive bug reports from users about losing their data with the old WritingOutliner, I think it’s a result of the imperfectness and complexities of the design of the old WritingOutliner, I apologize to @Listerene and the others again for the inconvenience caused, I fully understand the feeling of losing work and I’m sorry for the old WritingOutliner wasn’t stable enough to prevent that happens.

While the old WritingOutliner worked for most other people, the imperfect design of it is the main reason why I’ve completely re-design it as the new DocxManager, as a result, DocxManager is very stable in terms of preventing data loss, because besides asking Word to save/load your documents it doesn’t alter your Word document at all.

Give it a try again, at least keep an eye on it - DocxManager will being enhanced constantly in the future - I must say I’m very proud of its new architecture which is very flexible and allowed me keep adding more and more new feature and enhancements to it.
