Odessa, Ukraine – XwaveSoft today is pleased to introduce Cloud Outliner 1.2 Lite free for Mac OS X, its very useful outline-making app that lets users import/export in OPML format (Outline Processor Markup Language) and save outlines as PDFs. An outline is the most efficient and simple method of organizing, editing, saving, and sharing information of every kind, and it is perfect for recording flashes of inspiration that can be fully developed later. Upgrading to the full version adds sync between Macs, iOS devices, and Evernote accounts. Also available are Lite and Full versions of Cloud Outliner for iOS.
It is no coincidence that personal computers operate using a Hierarchical File System. Top to bottom branching is the most efficient and simple method of organizing any information. And an outline uses the same hierarchical method to illustrate the connection of a major topic, idea, or piece of information to related topics, ideas, and information. Nested categories, from major, to minor, to sub, to sub-sub categories provide an instant overview of the structure of any collection of data, notes, etc.

Creating a new outline in Cloud Outliner is done with a single touch or mouse click, and building hierarchies is equally simple. For example, the user might create an outline entitled “My Favorite Foods.” He or she might then start with the category Fruits, listing six favorite fruits beneath. With a single click/touch, Fruits is indented one tab. Similarly, each listed fruit is indented two tabs. A user can manually or automatically add to any level of indentation, and can drag any item to any level of hierarchy already established. The app automatically keeps track of each entry and all the hierarchical levels beneath it, prohibiting improper outline formatting.
Having created an initial outline, users can easily save or edit it. Editing is simple and intuitive, allowing the selection of multiple lines (including nested entries or columns). Entire hierarchies can be moved up or down in the outline, their items reordered, and indentations changed, or the entire group can be deleted. Within the app, it is easy to cut & paste from one outline to another, or paste into another app, such as Notes, Mail, Safari, etc.
Cloud Outliner functions in both standard and full-screen modes, and its streamlined GUI lets users make and adjust outlines without any restrictions whatsoever. An additional convenience feature is checkboxes, which can be inserted in front of any entry. This allows users to filter out checked items when displaying the outline, e.g. completed items in a to-do outline.
“Whether you’re plotting a novel, preparing to move, planning Christmas gifts, or starting on a research proposal, you will organize your thoughts more clearly and effectively by creating an outline,” stated Denys Yevenko of XwaveSoft. “And Cloud Outliner Lite for OS X makes outline creation, editing, and sharing, easier than any Mac app available.”
