Yes, Connected Text appears very powerful in this respect. I have a specific use in my mind, namely the collection and cross-referencing of a large number of my own texts. I had considered wikis in the past, but Connected Text also provides a visual presentation of interlinkages which I miss in ordinary wikis.

However, I would note that my starting point (quite possibly along with others in this forum) is rather peculiar. I have already partial collections in various other tools, from which the transfer to Connected Text is not evident. These collections represent considerable effort, so I would prefer to not have to transfer texts one by one.

It would perhaps make sense to be able to grab information directly from some popular tools, such as Evernote.

Alexander,

I have just purchased the upgrade to CT5 because I am considering (strongly) shifting from Zoot to CT. I exported a database from Zoot of about 180 records, each of which became a stand-alone .txt file. Importing this whole group into CT was a snap, each individual file becoming its own document. The whole process took me about two minutes.

This was probably a pretty elementary import compared to what you have in mind, but I just wanted to report on how easy it was.

Steve, thanks; interestingly, Zoot was the program I originally had in mind, though I have since decided it is overkill for such work.

I love Zoot, or at least the concept. Old Zoot was great, quirks and all, but I’m losing patience with the new Zoot 6 XT. It does quirky things, that may be related to all the previous installs I’ve had, but I’ve tried everything to fix them and to no avail. And we’ve been waiting endlessly for some kind of help file to explain new features. So switching to CT is an experiment. I think there are ways to emulate a lot of what Zoot does with CT, so I’ll see what happens. Ah, CRIMP!

Stephen,

If you need any help we will be glad to help. I recommend posting in our forum in order to avoid discuss matters not related to Outliner Software.
