Piggydb features inline viewing and editing of fragments at any depth, with recursion. Inline editing is new with version 5; editing previously took the user to a dedicated form.

Infoqube and Sense. Both can have additional panes (e.g. Infoqube for properties, Sense for Navigation) but they can also work as one-pane outliners displaying metatext inline.

There’s an (apparently) new Windows entrant, Outline4D http://www.screenplay.com/p-77-outline-4d.aspx , which can display metatext inline, among many other views. Outline4D also has a timeline view, so I’m cross-posting it in a relevant thread.

It seems to be an evolved version of an earlier Write Brothers’ program (they seem to specialise in tools for writing movie scripts) which provided the same vertical-outline / horizontal-timeline view. I don’t remember the name of that software, but I had surely written about it here at the time—several years ago. I recall that its price tag was quite higher—probably double- than Outline4D.

Outline4D does not seem to provide a trial version, but there are plenty of screenshots in the above website, as well as several videos here http://www.learnoutline4d.com/

Many thanks for the great suggestions, keep them coming!

I’m ashamed to admit that in my hour of need last night I ended up using MS Word 2010’s built-in outliner (after owning it for about a year and not once bothering to check it out). It was an OK experience actually, though I’m mystified that in that huge, wealthy organisation there is not a single person who would want to champion the idea of hierarchical outlining. I like simple when it comes to outliners, but MS Word is just poverty-stricken in terms of features…

I do suggest that you try out the Writing Outliner Word add-in http://writingoutliner.com/ if you haven’t done so already.
