I also need to comment on the cost of $9 per month if you want more than three trees. That’s a lot of money each year. If you use it extensively, then it would be worth the money. But I doubt I’d get my money’s worth.

Yes, that’s true, especially for a service that feels like it’s still in beta (with some critical features missing). It’s more than double of what WorkFlowy Pro would cost you a year ($49), without the iOS apps, collaborative features, offline access, and automatic Dropbox backup…

I’d be surprised if they don’t end up dropping that price.

For now I would only use the free version for occasional outlining jobs with immediate export to avoid data loss.

Thanks. Just tried this (CTRL+SHIFT+E). The headings exported fine but the bullet points got a bit messed up in Word (though easy to fix).

However, I haven’t looked at WriteMonkey for years. It has come a long way, it’s looking quite good now!

It turns out that you can just copy and paste directly from Gingko into MS Word, and the formatting seems to be recognised just fine. No need for any special Markdown conversion (as far as basic formatting and headings are concerned).
