The up/down arrow behavior is intended. It works differently when in notes though. Up/down goes to the line, but you have to hit esc to get out of the notes.

Zavala has graduated to its 1.0.0 Alpha release. This means that it has all the features that are planned for the 1.0 release, but that it still might be buggy. Might be? Who am I kidding? It has bugs in it. :-) The Alpha release is done to shake out any bugs I don’t know about yet.

I built a new website for Zavala if you are curious about it but aren’t sure about downloading it. https://zavala.vincode.io

While I was making the website I completely broke the update mechanism for the Mac version. You will have to download it manually from https://zavala.vincode.io/download. I’ve gotten a report that the built-in update mechanism doesn’t always work. If that has happened to you, I apologize. When the Mac app is released, it will be through the Mac App Store, so that shouldn’t be a problem when we do the production release.

Zavala is a free, open source application and always will be. You should give it a shot.

Great work. Even if I don’t use it myself, I’m glad to see it out in the world!

The one big wish I have for an outliner is a horizontal view. This has been discussed at length in various posts on this forum. For example,


A recent application that comes close and maybe in development is Dashwood;


Is this the kind of feedback you after @Maurice Parker?

Yes! That is exactly the kind of feedback I want.

I’ll have to give it some thought though. I hadn’t given any consideration to doing an horizontal view yet. I like it as a differential feature to what other outliners are doing.

I have quite a few traditional outline functions that I want to implement first. Hoisting and scripting/automation are at the top of my list right now. I don’t expect that I would be able to implement a new big feature like this for at least another year.
