Some good stuff by our own Steve Zeoli:

Great review, Steve! I was a bit surprised though to see Scrivener on the list, as I never really thought of it as an outliner. Looking forward to the next instalments!

Thanks for the plug.

I include Scrivener in this show down because I want to test how good an outliner it really is. I am trying to include outliners that use a variety of approaches… and frankly the number of straight outlining programs in Windows that are actively being developed is not long. Today I hope to post a review of UV Outliner.

Suggestions from this forum for other outliners to include are welcome. I’m not including hierarchical organizers like MyInfo, MyBase, UltraRecall.

Thanks, again!

Steve Z.

I suppose Whizfolders would be then in the same category (there was a discussion on Scrivener vs. Whizfolders here recently).

and frankly the number of straight outlining programs in Windows that
>are actively being developed is not long.

Unfortunately this criterion eliminates my other all-time favourite, Natara Bonsai 5 Desktop Edition, although it works perfectly with Win7 still.

I can see adding WhizFolders to the lineup. It hadn’t occurred to me at the time. The reason WF might qualify when UltraRecall wouldn’t is that it seems to me that WF is built for writing—as Scrivener is. Also—and I need to check this—I seem to remember that you can export the outline only.

Thanks for that suggestion!

Interesting, Steve.

For no very good reasons, I’d always regarded OneNote highly. Having read your review I’ve revised my opinion. It’s an interesting moment too, as MS appear to be pushing OneNote as a star attraction of Office 2013.

Unless one of your other choices delivers a clean knockout blow, I’d also be interested in how NoteMap and EccoPro match up (assuming, that is, that you’d be willing to turn your series from a sprint into more of a marathon - to mix metaphors).

(P.S. There’s no better person to carry out such a comparison.)
