Docxmanager - https://docxmanager.com - is the outgrowth, as i understand, of the Word extension, Writing Outliner.

I’ve communicated in the past with Edwin Yip, who seems to have cheerfully clung to his mission when there were serious complaints about the product. I don’t know him personally, but what I’ve seen is admirable.

It has a corkboard view now, along with Scrivenerish features to manage multiple documents.

From the looks of his website, it’s almost enough to make me consider using Word. I mean that as a compliment to Mr. Yip.

Has anyone used Docxmanager?

Yep, and its predecessor.  I’m not sure what the “serious complaints” were, because I’ve been using it (and WritingOutliner) for well over a decade, it’s stable and I’ve never lost a byte of information within it.  I use it to manage and edit a many-thousand page reference book which I couldn’t do using Word (or any other word processor that I’ve tested) alone. If Edwin manages to improve the web output I’ll be able to use it to replace my projects in ConnectedText too.

Worth mentioning that, according to the website, this is only available for Windows.

I believe the initial release, a long time ago, was recalled. My recollection was full refunds were offered. I declined, preferring to see development continue.

The problems, as I recall, were driven by changes in Word’s API, and I thought the developer showed a lot of integrity.

I’m very glad to see the product grow, even though I’m not a Word user.

He had to leave the previous version for a while due to… life.
He’s a good guy.
