I don't know if I'm wasting my time, it's been almost 3 years since the last major update, maybe OO is considered feature-complete. But I'm just trying to keep the discussion alive.

But as I was looking at other information organizer apps, it occurs to me that few if any are able to combine the nice meta-data features of a database with a writing environment on par with OO. Most are great at organizing at the file level (or at the level of a title for a block of text), but OO lets you take notes with a structure that allows you to reorganize at the text level much easier. Unfortunately, I've got a lot of stuff in my outlines that are just not easy to organize at a higher level, particularly if you're not using columns (I should probably try to use columns more, but that is just not a natural part of my note-taking workflow).

Anyway, if we had some of the meta-data features of apps like Scrivener, Journler, etc. combined with the capability of a real outliner, you've got my dream app (not that anyone cares!)
