Oh, sorry, missed the “non-Cloud” criterion.

I’d definitely endorse RightNote – I used it all the time when I was on Windows.

Also interesting is EssentialPIM. It’s much more than an outliner (the Pro version functions as a complete Outlook replacement, too), but it’s very easy to use and the outlining functionality is good. The search function appears to have improved, too (it was a bit erratic in early versions).

Thanks for all the suggestions and opinions about them.

Since posting my original query I have continued my search, as I’m sure others have seen from time-to-time a few other possibilities appeared the very next day.  Of those one called ActionOutline stood out as meeting most of my requirements so now I am trying the 30-day full version: so far so good.

At Dr Andus’ suggestion on his tool box from some time ago I have been looking again at Freeplane, now at v8.6. Seems rather a mouthful to swallow but as in all these programs it should succumb to the application of some effort.

(Just finally on NotaBene, for those who’ve never seen it just take an hour to look at it. For me who had used Word since the 1900’s and WordPerfect before that it was an eye opener. Here was something which took a fresh look at the basics of word processing.)

If you like ActionOutline you will love RightNote.
I suggest to download and test it as well.
