Just to add one thought to Hugh’s comments about Scrivener’s outlining functions, it is worth noting that Scrivener is really two outliners in one. The Binder is one outline as some programs, including Whizfolders, define outlines, allowing you to develop hierarchical structure for your project. But then there is also the “outliner,” which takes outlining a step further than that. But the “outliner” only shows items that are subordinate to the currently selected item in the Binder. In outliner terms, it is a hoist function. I find the Mac version outline pretty powerful and easy to use. I haven’t used the Windows version enough to comment on it.
