I initially heard about this program in the Zoot forum, and finally got around to give it a try.

I think the program is quite promising if you do a lot of academic research.

You might want to try out for yourself.

There are also some good video tutorial clips for the program at the website.

IdeaMason looks very good.

I had never heard of it, but it looks a good compromise between a word processor and the all encompassing NotaBene.

Thanks for the pointer,

Graham

I see Idea Mason contains an outliner in it composition module. Unfortunately for some of us, it looks like it’s a two-pane outliner. How competent is the tree itself. Has anyone checked out what kind of outlining operations are available?

I wouldn’t say the program has an excellent outlienr, but for what it does, it’s as good as Nxdcards if not better (it’s quite seamless).  I really like the ability to insert all linked items into the outliner.

I think it’s really good at organizing your ideas.  Once you insert your source materials, the bibliography gets updated automatically—essential for acadmeic writing in my book.

The developers seem to be quite receptive to suggestions as well.

The cut-off for me is multiple selection of topics. Does the outliner let you select and move multiple topics at the same time, or do you have to rearrange one by one.
