Collapsible outlines in online editors?
October 1, 2009 7:29 PM   Subscribe

In this day of AJAX, JavaScript, etc., it just seems ridiculous that I can't find an online word processor that has collapsible outlines (like MS Word). Is this really true? Anyone know of such a beast?

OmniOutliner has collapsable outlines, but it isn't online. It's free though.

Response by poster: Ah, thank you. Our office is PC only unfortunately. And ideally would still like something stored up in the cloud for universal access ...

Though that's not an online word processor, per se - it's an online text editor. Do you really need collapsible outlines and word processor functions, ie changing fonts / colors / sizes?

If so, well, it'll be a bit tougher...

Sproutliner is a free online outline editor (not a word processor), but I don't know if it can export documents.

Response by poster: Thank you. Amy Editor is geared mainly to programmers. Could work in a pinch.

Sproutliner seems like it's more of a task/ list manager. It's no longer being developed & I'm not sure whether there's a way to keep online documents private.

Unfortunately, the quest continues.
