I have been managing my CRIMPing pretty well for a while. However, I ran across a new(At least new to me.)outliner the other day and wondered if anyone had tried it.  It’s Mac only. It is called Process, and is put out by Jumsoft(http://www.jumsoft.com/process/)

It looks like it has a version available for trial, and I may give it a shot, but I wondered if anyone else had experience.

You may not be surprised to learn that own a license to Process. I believe it came with a bundle of apps I purchased at one point. I don’t use it much, because… well I already have too many such apps. But I have dabbled with it. I think it is a nice applicaiton, but it is more of a project and task manager than an outliner. But you could use it as an outliner, because it does allow you to arrange tasks in a hierarchy, add extensive notes and export to a number of recognized outliner formats. Worth a look, certainly, but it isn’t any more adept at outlining than OmniOutliner. In other words, I’d say that if you are looking for an outliner, Process wouldn’t be my first choice. If you’re looking for a nimble project/task manager that could double as an outliner, then it would be worth giving it a trial.

I too have tried Process, although I didn’t buy a licence in the end. As Steve says, it’s trying to be a task manager, rather than an outliner, although it could be used as such. It appears to be unusual in that regard; I seem to remember it calls itself an outliner—almost as if you’re meant to use it for outlining a project before exporting your plan to a recognised project manager.

I was searching for a simple project manager, something between OmniFocus or TaskPaper and OmniPlan or Merlin. (A not-dissimilar application that was mentioned recently on the Scrivener forum is Hot Plan by Intuiware.) I came to the conclusion Process wasn’t what I wanted, partly because its development rate seemed rather slow.
