“How do you outline in Scrivener?” I use Scrivener’s own outliner and/or its index card feature.

Having been a bit snarky about Ulysses 15, I’m delighted to find you can open side-by-side editors in multiple windows (on macOS), and even choose the orientation in each separate window (vertical/horizontal). It’s neatly arranged (little fade-in icon that appears in twin-editor view is used to control orientation, highlighting, etc.).

Nicely done, Ulysses. But where’s the note linking?

I don’t want to be snarky about Ulysses, either. Clearly a lot of work has been put into developing the split-editor feature, and making it user-friendly. I still think that Ulysses is an excellent tool for some purposes. It’s just that paying a sub every year makes one more impatient - perhaps irrationally - than one would be if one were simply coughing up for an upgrade every four or five.

Exactly, Hugh. What also does, I confess, surprise me somewhat is that Ulysses has its own library system, meaning it effectively has its own file format. So some of these features should, in principle, be relatively easy to incorporate.

And yet progress seems to take place really quite slowly. Much fuss, I feel, is made about relatively minor new features. Yes, it’s a good program (or collection of apps), but I’d like to see a proper roadmap now.
