Would like an app that makes it easy to reorder items in an outline. What tools have worked well for you?
When I used it (and I no longer do, to be honest), Workflowy seemed like a great tool for reording outline elements, especially with the use of their keyboard shortcuts. And, it looks like they've made improvements since my last experience with the tool.
I now use Notion for this type of work, but simply because I use it to capture all my work related thoughts/content/etc. It's not as quick for strictly outlining text, but it serves many more purposes for me and I'm not interested in adding another tool to the mix at this point. But, if I was exclusively focusing on efficient outlining (text), I'd take another look at Workflowy.
If you use a Mac or iOS device and are writing outlines on your own, OmniOutliner is a treat to use. It's a nicely designed outlining app that makes it easy to nest ideas, reorder thoughts, add notes to points then hide them if you want, and even do quick spreadsheet-style calculations if you want to use outlines for planning. It's rather powerful—GTD tool OmniFocus was originally a OmniOutliner add-on—but also simple enough to focus on your thoughts and outline them. Plus, its built-in outlining themes are pretty nice.
I don't use it as much as I should, as I typically end up just writing outlines in iA Writer, Ulysses, Google Docs, Notion, or whatever other writing app I'm using at the moment, but whenever I need to organize a lot of ideas it's the app I open.
One of the reasons I love Notion is because of how easy it is to rearrange and transform things as they move through the creation process. When I'm creating content, it goes from idea description to first draft all in the same Notion page.
Especially for personal to-dos and tasks that you need to accomplish outside of your team, what is your favorite app and tricks for getting the most out of it?
Last week, Slack announced some new features, including a WYSIWYG rich text editor.
Along with the addition of this feature, they changed the Markdown functionality to render formatting in-line.
