I was not aware of WritingOutliner, just visited the website and downloaded a copy, and frankly it appears to be what I’ve long searched for.

However, if anyone doesn’t care for WritingOutliner, you might want to try the freeware KeyNote, now under the supervision of SourceForge.  It will do everything Gary Carson, the originator of this thread, indicated he seeks, and the interface is fast, intuitive and very configurable with lots of hotkey options.  It does not integrate into Word like WritingOutliner, but does export all or selected outliner nodes as .txt or .rtf for easy inesrtion into or opening by Word.  I’ve been using it for legal writing which requires collecting, tagging, and bookmarking, a lot of research clips, assembling them into outline format and draft text.  I then export the finished draft to Word for formatting and final editing.

I would look at WritingOutliner first, but you may want to compare it to KeyNote before deciding.  Incidentally, I’ve tried a lot of other alternatives including OneNote, TreePad, WhizFolders, NoteMap (a dedicated legal outliner which is now exorbitantly expensive), Inspiration, and several mind mappers.

No one has touched Keynote ever since Marek Jedlinski put it on Sourceforge, so it’s the same one that was or still is on Transglos site.
But I believe one or two created their own spin-off projects, details escape me.

Writing Outliner is fairly nice, I was sceptical about anything that depends on Word, but succumbed and liked it. I’m waitinig for Scrivener for Windows, it will be either that or Writing Outliner for my future writing.

or another place:
http://code.google.com/p/keynote-nf/
- seems to be a bit more ‘friendly’ and with additional downloads

Best,
