Like other outliner software, WordOutliner is good for outlining and organizing writings, project and tasks, but what makes it different is that WordOutliner is built on top of Word, and is seamlessly integrated into Word (shows inside Word Window).
That being said, you already have Microsoft Word, which is the actual industry standard, what you lack of is a way of organizing your documents (and reference documents such as PDF, web pages, images, and so on), and WordOutliner exactly does that for you, right inside the Word window
See answer above.
In addition to the answer above, have a lightweight file manager/organizer sits inside Word Window is really handy.
A project folder in the WordOutliner pane (on the left of the Word Window) is actually a link to a folder in your file system in your computer, for example, a sub-folder in "My Documents".
Your Word, PDF, plain text, image, html or any other formats of documents are stored in your project folders in your computer "as is", and WordOutliner only operate on them on the file level.
Each project folder has a file called _project_metadata_.sqlite3, it's a Sqlite database file used to stored your metadata for documents in this project folder; Metadata includes document
target word count, and so on.
The Sqlite database system is the most commonly used open source embedded database system in the world (users include Google Inc and Adobe Inc), it's very lightweight and fast. Open source means that your metadata is a stored in open file format, and there are a lot of publicly-available tools to read them outside of WordOutliner.
See answer below.
The new WordOutliner is a complete redesign based on feedbacks by users of the old Writing Outliner, and the biggest difference is:
The new WordOutliner uses file system folders for storing your document content, instead of storing then into Sqlite database files in the old Writing Outliner (metadata are still stored in Sqlite databases, for good reasons). This way, all your documents are easily accessible by other programs or move between home PC and laptop (notebook) computers.
On top of the new file system storage, WordOutliner achieved:
See answer above.
Yes, the new WordOutliner can coexist with the old Writing Outliner, if you have both of them installed, you'll see switching options at the top of the left pane in the Word window.
WordOutliner ins licensed on a per-user basis, and the license agreement allows you to install it onto up to 3 (three) computers, as long as you are the only user of WordOutliner.
Yes, your project documents are just ordinary documents in your computer, of course you can copy/move them to another computer and edit the document content, if you have Microsoft Word installed there. But need not to say, in order to edit the document metadata (synopse, notes, tags, target words, etc) you must have WordOutliner installed on the other computer too.
Yes, WordOutliner supports all versions of Microsoft Word from Word 2000 to Word 2013 (Office 365 is actually Office 2013, the difference is that you rent it from Microsoft monthly).
Yes, WordOutliner supports 64bit version of Word which was first introduced in Office 2010 and continue exists in Office 2013 (Office 365).
