Is preferable a small program for the outline, because LibreOffice can not manage outlines.

I have used tree programs for that purpose:

1)  A text editor, with the ability to indent/unindent and to move
    lines up and down. That's was one of the outline software you
    describe. Also, can work in utf-8. An example: notepad2

2)  Freeplane (a mind map software), can export a tree to odt.

3)  You can use also,tkoutline (,, which is a little simple
    but gets the work done.

Have a nice day

           but if you're referring to the document adding the Roman numerals
... numerals ... letters to form an outline;
          LO does this - & so do other programs.

        But I would not recommend any of them since these computer-generated
outlines don't fit with the way I was taught to make one;
           these computer generated spelling programs irk me as well  ;-)

        Well, maybe I'm set in my ways,

Subject: [libreoffice-users] LibreOffice Compatible Outliner
To: LibreOffice Mailing List <>

I am using LibreOffice on Linux and very happy with it. Often, however, I
would like to use my Android tablet, or even phone, to draft an outline of
a document that I would later develop further on my desktop.

Ideally, a simple application such as an outliner would be ideal and I
remember such DOS programs such as PCOutline etc. that existed for this
purpose. They were very simple and efficient to use and served very well.
Simple key strokes for all key features.

Does something like that exist today? Ideally for both Android and Linux
and utilizing the LibreOffice format so that outlines created could be
seamlessly imported into LibreOffice.

Thank you.
