I appreciate the feedback. Page Four really doesn’t have what I’m looking for, and development really hasn’t progressed in some time (I am aware of a minor bug-fix update). I use PageFour from time to time, but it just doesn’t have the outlining support I need.

I’ve looked at the Journal in the past, and actually downloaded again seeing the recent comments about contacting the developer and possibility of some Scrivener-like additions. I’m waiting ... and hoping.

Overnight, I’ve had an exchange with someone who’s trying to merge LyX (http://www.lyx.org) with Scrivener. You can read about his idea here (http://www.oak-tree.us/blog/index.php/2009/03/04/perfect-tool). He says the LyX people are supportive, and he’s got a prototype working. (Note: Yeah, I volunteered to beta test it). I’ll keep you informed.

The people who frequent Outliner Software are great. If I were a developer, I’d foot the bill for the site, and give you all free copies of my programs, just for all the great ideas you provide and how you help each other.
