Thank you Alexander, glad you like it! BTW, it was you who introduced me to O4D, so doubly thanks for that. Alongside CT, O4D was my other great discovery of 2012.

I’ve just realised that I still managed to forget another important view (the “Summarize” view that shows the title and the first line of each item). I’ve added it now to the blog post.

This brings the number of different views you can have of your outline in O4D to 10 (without counting the Timeline View, which is a whole another kettle of fish)...

I don’t know of another outliner with that many different views. Which is not to say O4D doesn’t have shortcomings. It lacks hoisting, which would be nice to have.
