suggested features for Mac version

John Jemerin Apr 20, 2018 05:15PM PDT

Very good notebook app on Mac. Two features would make it much better, especially the first:

1. Integrate a full outliner with: a) The ability to collapse any topic with subtopics to make it possible to focus on one section at a time, and b) the ability to move items up or down in the outline with automatic re-numbering if applicable

2. Drawing or mark-up features in the Mac version to allow for marking up pdf files or notes (beyond just highlighting) and for making simple diagrams.

Also, I may be missing something, but I can't figure out a way to set the default font size for notes. It's a pain to have to manually change the font from the default of 11 pt (hard to read on the screen) every time.

I second this remark.
I've been using Circus Ponies for taking notes and organizing my life for 13 years, and I have a few hundreds pages.
The most useful feature for me is indeed to jot bullet points then reorganize them as I get a better view of their relations. So a full outliner as described above in 1. is indeed what I'm looking for and is preventing so far me from buying "Outline"

I vote for a full outline also. These are all features needed to use this efficiently/productively:
- Ability to expand/collapse, rearrange bullets by drag-and-drop.
- Integrate with Mac OS Fonts - want the ability to use any font I have installed just like in any other Mac app.
- Mac Dictionary integration: When a word is highlighted as misspelled, bring up suggestions and dictionary "Lookup" using right-click.
- Allow drag & drop of Sections and Section Groups to rearrange easily
- All around tighter integration with the Mac operating system - take advantage of the OS services available. App Mac apps should behave similarly and be able to use the same services.

Thanks, I second the above comments. I have purchased and am liking Outline but miss CP's ability to expand/collapse and rearrange subheadings. Any chance??
