...and MyInfo, apparently. What a pity TRichView doesn’t seem to provide a way of implementing single-pane outlining, as far as I can see.

Correct, it is basically an rich text editor (using a proprietary format ?), so it serves as a basis for a word-processor type application, aka a 2-pane outliner. To build an 1-pane outliner, you need to use a totally different control.

Hate to add to the jealousy, but VoodooPad 4 http://flyingmeat.com/voodoopad/ is an amazing wiki program, but it only works on the latest OS X operating system. Many people using it say that they couldn’t imagine what they would use it for, but the ease with which the program creates links got them addicted. (I like Scrivener, and I’m not sure I have a use for VoodooPad, but it is fun to play around with.) Comes in 3 versions, free, $19.95, and $49.95, depending on features. Even if PC users can’t use it, it provides a pretty impressive standard for what such programs can offer.

I agree that there is no real alternative to Scrivener on the PC. But there is more than real competition to Voodoopad on the PC, namely ConnectedText, which is much more capable than Voodoopad. The search function is much too anemic, for instance.

By the way, I am returning my MAC ibook to the department after trying to work on it for more than a year. I am just too tied to the PC, and neither Voodoopad, which I actually bought, nor Scrivener, which I tried extensively as well, nor any of the many excellent outliners were enough to move me to that platform.

The main reason for this is, in fact, ConnectedText.
