What is outliner software?

An outliner, also called outliner processor, is a tool for creating hierarchical documents. An outline is used to present the main points (in sentences) or topics (terms) of a given subject. Each item in the outline can have sub-items, so the document has a tree structure.

Outline items can expanded or collapsed, so that their sub-items are visible or hidden depending on your needs. Advanced outliners allow you to hoist certain parts of the outline, so that you can focus on a certain part of the outline, without the visual clutter of the rest.

Why use an outliner app?

An outliner breaks complex processes and ideas into smaller, more manageable bits.

Outliners are ideal tools for creating an essay, a paper, or even a book. You can use them to organize ideas, tasks, and goals.

MyInfo provides a way to arrange different kinds of research data, creating hierarchically organized documents. The user can format and highlight text in order to emphasize important information, as well as insert images, hyperlinks, or tables.

There is a hierarchical tree which is used to organise documents and this is where things get interesting because MyInfo implements transclusion. MyInfo allows you to clone a document so it can be placed in two or more different locations in the tree.
