Thanks for pointing me to Scenari. It looks quite interesting. I’m realizing now, having done a bit more research, that the phrase “structured document” has various shades of meaning beyond what I had realized (sorry for my ignorance), and beyond what I’m actually looking for. In many cases, the phrase refers to documents that follow some sort of predefined structure, which is the sort of need that Scenari meets. For my own purposes, however, I simple want to compose academic documents in such a way that I can manipulate both the structure and the body text seamlessly (along with other features mentioned earlier).


What a surprise! I’m very glad to here that Writer’s Blocks is still in development—-thanks for letting us know. I’ll keep an eye out for it.

Just a really quick comment. I love WritersBlocks, but it is so darned expensive. I looked for a long time to find an affordable alternative. I eventually found SuperNoteCard. It is cross-platform and has a cloud component that allows you to create documents from any web-connected device.

Dear CRIMPers,

Writer’s Blocks and SuperNoteCards look interesting. I’ll have to give them a try, although the former strikes me as ridiculously over-priced, especially for an application that hasn’t been developed in so long. Maybe the new version will provide better value.

I do want to pick the one desideratum of Lucas’ original post: “two-pane outlining with an editable combined view in the right-hand pane.” This would be really valuable to me. Any other applications offer this?

Thanks, Dominik. Does Writing Outliner now enable editing in the combined view?
