“The only thing which keeps Atlantis from being the best word processor available for any platform is the lack of comments. I use it for first drafts but then have to switch for revisions. It’s frustrating because they’ve a lot of bells and whistles which are far less useful.”

You know, it’s just not good enough, no text processor is, and whilst it’s true that lately, AHK gets worse and worse, by the fact that for more and more of new or just newer programs, it’s not able anymore to interact with the, what they call it, “non-conformist/traditional/whatever” windows, it’s a fact that any writing except for, possibly, poetry/“lyrics”, is about construction*, above any other factor, and that means you must try to get something that will well interplay with some basic AHK coding (see my years-old DC hints about that), for anything more than it offers naturally, but the core service you should ask from it is very well backup of your construction needs. As for “comments”, I already detailed how to process them in any tool not providing the necessary code for them, originally, but that’s certainly not the slightest possible argument in favor of minor tools like “Atlantis”. Write some lines of code, get some 2-pane outliner, and you’re done, starting for becoming highly productive at last.

*= It’s one of the big ironies in arts that in music, that construction thing once was predominant, too (Beethoven et al.), whilst it’s been a long time that that has been replaced by melody (between Schubert and Schumann), but then, music isn’t writing, is it: music being an art form with immediate effect, whilst writings soaking in over some time lapse, so the old masters simply were mistaken; of course that remark doesn’t to (yesterday’s and today’s) bourgeois types who don’t feel music but simply celebrate them for their social needs.

Sorry, they call those windows “non-standard”, but well, standards change over time, whilst some basics remain the same, don’t they.

Atlantis now has collapsible headings:
https://www.atlantiswordprocessor.com/en/help/collapsible_headings.htm

“When you want to focus on certain parts of a long document, you can temporarily collapse the document parts that you currently do not need. You can collapse document parts when the document contains headings (paragraphs formatted with the “Heading N” styles, or any other paragraphs with the “outline level” different than “body text”).”

I’ve left Windows for good, and don’t know if I want to wrestle it in Wine on Linux. But Atlantis looks good, has a reasonable price ($35), and with collapsable headings, looks pretty useable. I’m glad to see this outliner-like functions in editors. So logical!

Yes, increasingly tempting to cut ties with Windows and it’s apps as the years go by. Which Linux distro(s) have you used so far?
