Hi, Tony,

I understand that you're getting great value from the navigator in LO. There
are features, however, in Word that are hard to live without for me in what
I do all the time. As I described in my original post, I currently drag and
drop paragraphs which do not have headers, and I don't like the idea of
having to put a header on every paragraph I want to use the process for. 

In addition, I can use a single click of the button to disappear all but the
first line of the text, which can be very long on a wide screen computer
with no word wrap. To accomplish the efficiencies of this way of organizing
with LO takes much longer and more key strokes and mouse clicks. 

Someone else made a suggestion that was different than yours, and since I
had just used my method, I was able to give an exact comparison between his
method and mine.  I don't have a similarly short project to do the same with
your method, but his method would have taken around 450 mouse clicks to
accomplish what I did with 63 clicks and much less time.

I apologize if this is comparing apples with oranges, but I also do
understand that I'm comparing fruit with fruit, and there is some validity
to doing so. No one has suggested anything that comes close to my methods of
work. Someone suggested Scrivener, and when I was checking out the site, I
discovered their Scapple mind-mapping software, which was so much better
than anything that I've tried so far that I immediately got distracted,
bought it, and have been using it for a massive project I'm now very focused
on. But I never got around to actually checking out Scrivener, so I have no
comment on it, other than I'm predisposed to liking their software now.

At the moment, I'm mostly overwhelmed with my current massive project,
working late into the night, every single night, and I'm not giving much
attention to this discussion any more. Even romance has trouble breaking
through my focus, right now--and believe me, romance has an upper hand in
any battle between her and this discussion. 

Thanks for your suggestion.
