The new edition has all the same outlining features as its commercial cousin, with no annoying restrictions or limitations.
You don’t get any library management features – new tools for storing and organising your outlines – but the program is very usable without them.
(Arguably Outlinely Express 2.0 is better than regular Outlinely 1.x, as it has a much-improved interface and many new shortcuts and productivity tweaks.)
If you’re new to Outlinely, it’s essentially a text editor optimised for outlining.
You already know how to use the core features, entering text, changing font and styles, search and replace, undo/ redo, and more.
But the program builds on this with many outliner-oriented features, like creating lists within lists, dragging and dropping to reorganise them, attaching notes and links, zooming in to any item, collapsing and expanding to hide/ remove detail, and more.
Your outline may then be exported to OPML, PDF, Microsoft Word, RTF, HTML, Markdown, and plain-text formats.
Outlinely Express is a free app for OS X 10.10 or later.
