BTW, mind mapping is the top-rated feature in the ‘wish list’ section of the WritingOutliner website.[/vc_column_text][subtitle3]How will the plan be executed?[/subtitle3][vc_column_text]In short, MindOutliner will be developed based on MindVisualizer, with the writer-friendly features found in WritingOutliner gradually added, plus many powerful word processing features that should be enough for your to abandon MS Word.[/vc_column_text][subtitle3]The goals?[/subtitle3][vc_column_text]
- Make current MindVisualizer users happy, by letting them find MindOutliner much more powerfully than ever, all after all, after the stalled development for years 😉
- Make current WritingOutliner users happy, by letting them find MindOutliner is much more handy then [MS Word + WritingOutliner], without much compromisations in terms of rich text formatting (word processing).
- Makes me (the developer) feel relieved, by being able to frequently deliver quality updates of all of my products, again; by receiving emails from my customers saying I’m listening to them, again; and by not having to fight with the limits of MS Word when developing Word addins!
The final output of our large writing is linear, but the the process usually is not. The radiant, visual structure of a mindmap is more suitable for developing and restructuring your writing project.
And don’t forget, from the point of view of a WritingOutliner user, mind mapping is the only an additional tool in the MindOutliner writing software, you’ll still get the outlining and corkboard features!
PS, please don’t hesitate to let me know your thoughts in this regard.[/vc_column_text][subtitle3]So you want me to replace [Word + WritingOutliner] with MindOutliner?[/subtitle3][vc_column_text]Yes, if you are not satisfied with WritingOutliner . You must be worried about rich text formatting (word processing), in terms of rich text formatting, so far no software is on par with Microsoft Word.
But don’t worry, MindOutliner will provide at least the core formatting features of MS Word, I think it’ll be more than enough for most of you for writing academic documents novels, technical materials, etc. See proves below.
I can imaging you’ll be able to import a WritingOutliner project file (which is a SQLite database file with .docx stored within) into MindOutliner, without losing much of the text formats.
Note: The following screenshots are captured from the DEMO programs provided by the word processing component will be used in MindOutliner, so it’s not MindOutliner yet, but you can expect similar text formatting features will be provided by MindOutliner.[/vc_column_text]
