MyInfo 6 is released today. I`ve bought the pro version (there`s a good sale price for upgrading from the regular version 5 to pro version 6), and it looks very good.
http://www.milenix.com/myinfo/myinfo6std.html

Among the new features are hoist, and the ability to open multiple documents, which is great for writers, and others who need to scan back and forth from one article to another. One limitation is that the open windows, other than the main window, are read only, but that will likely change in future.

So far I am very pleased, and highly recommend MyInfo.

I’ve only used MyInfo on a couple of occasions; see here http://www.outlinersoftware.com/topics/viewt/1370/10 for an example. I have a very positive opinion of the program but I hadn’t found much that made it stand out for my own needs.

The recent development may change all that though; among others, MyInfo 6 includes a feature I had only seen in the most expensive mind mapping applications: the ability to import a Word document and preserve its structure, creating an outline based on the various styles. I haven’t tested this extensively yet, but I am nevertheless impressed.

I’ve always thought that mind mapping programs are overpriced, whereas some much more moderately priced outliners can do much of the same.

This does look interesting - I’ve tried MyInfo before, and not been desperately impressed (didn’t work quite as well as it said it did, if you see what I mean). But the new features are tempting. One of my favourite organisers of a few years back was WinOrganizer, which also allowed you to open multiple notes and edit them, but alas, it doesn’t seem to have been in development for a little while now.

My only gripe with MyInfo is that it doesn’t support multi-user applications. However, I do like the fact that the Pro version allows you to export your entire notebase as a website - that’s nice.

Cheers,
Bill

This, sadly, is the case of many of the programs we discuss here.

Several outlining programs can do this, but MyInfo’s implementation is surely one of the best. It’s very flexible and the result can be published on a website out of the box via FTP—including attachments.
