This can mean a lot of different things, which might be best served with different types of software.

“Outliner” - at least as it’s used on this forum - is a catch-all term that refers to very different types of software in terms of their use and functionality.

a) One big group could be called “notes databases”, which are for capturing, annotating, organising, storing, recombining and recalling information.

b) The other big group could be called “thinking and writing tools,” which help with developing ideas and outlines, and then with turning them into a final text.

c) There are also a few that try to combine the above two categories.

Are you looking for a), b) or c)?

Keep in mind that c) normally means increased complexity, a steeper learning curve or some compromise that undermines the functionality of a) or b).

Interesting looking app, “iroha note”—visually.  It’s an Adobe Air app, which is somewhat of a dead end, and hasn’t been updated, it seems, in a very long time.  So there may be no there, there.

Looks like the map view of Tinderbox without the rest of the iceberg.

I think I have uses for the three groups

1- I can use group a to make a data base of cards to retrive information
2- I can use group b to outline lecture notes
3- group c may be a good AIO option and I donot mind learning curve

I apprechiate examples of all three groups
Also If the program has a good presentation ability this will be great

Scrivener Is a good software I like and use it in my writings of papers and books

InfoQube should be able to do the job, no problem.

Many users consider it the best and most flexible Windows outliner / information management:
