Hi :)  
I often make the Gnu&Linux partitions quite small and keep the majority of my files on the Windows 

Ironically my network file-shares are all on Debian so i kinda go from my Gnu&Linux system into the 
Windows side to hunt around and then use links from there into the Debian.  (Unless i knew it was 
on the server right from the start and was able to dodge hunting through Windows folders.  

As we have probably said many times before on this list there is often 1 or 2 things that you don't 
know how to do on the newer system and that often means going back to Windows to do those 1 or 2 
things.  As you become more familiar the number of things you have to go back for drops quite a bit 
but it does usually leave 1 or 2 things that linger on for ages after.  

Obviously when you first start it's all new to you so you probably spend most time in Windows and 
only occasionally bounce over to the other but one day you find you have tipped the other way.  For 
me it was when i found Wesnoth and the same weekend my neighbour fixed multimedia.  Nowadays 
multimedia seems to work straight out of the box and 0AD looks better.  

Generally if i have to use Windows it's an older version of Windows or older software.  I don't 
really need to keep things so up-to-date anymore.  At the moment it is hilarious to watch people 
'having to' shell out loads of money to replace their 'old' versions of MSO 2010 which are now 
out-dated compared to what people are buying on newer home machines.  One chap has bought 3 
different versions of MS Office within the last year and still has problems with people not being 
able to open his files because they are on a different version.  

Incidentally i am sorry we couldn't find a suitable replacement but i'm glad to hear you have at 
least found a work-around.  It sounds like you are nearing your tipping point.  
Regards from 
Tom :)

As I stated earlier in the thread, I have a working solution, right now,
but I would prefer to stop using M$ for ideological reasons. I'm not
looking for a work around, but a replacement. That's why I created this
thread and that's why I also filed a feature request in Bugzilla for the
same thing. And by the way, this single issue also is a deal breaker for
using Linux, so this one issue influences everything.

I had a Linux partition on my last computer, but I found that I had to
duplicate resources by having them on both partitions. When I ran out of
space and had to replace the partition, I resented Linux, because I was
only using it for ideological reasons, and I could not leave Windows behind
until I had a fully functioning Office suite, with an integrated outliner.
So in reality, the lack of outliner functionality is a deal breaker for me
for everything, including whether or not I use Linux.

When I was a full-time journalist in the 1980s, I became very successful
using a dedicated outliner called PCOutline. When all the major Word
Processers came along--MS Word, Word Perfect, etc, the lack of outliner
functionality kept me with my archaic outliner until MS Word beat the
functionality of PCOutline.

As a partial workaround, did you try the menu File > Send > Create
AutoAbstract... ?

Best regards
