Personally, for the kind of use you're describing, I would use a simple text editor that saves the document in a basic text-only form (ie: using .txt as the extension). LibreOffice opens plain-text files with no problem, and there are various text editors available for both Linux and Android, probably including some that include outline-specific capabilities.

As for outline-specific software, I did a Google search and found an Android program named "Android Outliner" from a company called Startseite with a free version that appears to be able to export its output to .txt plain-text format. I also found a program called "TreeLine 2.0" ( that runs under Windows or Linux and apparently is a combination of outliner and pim. The website says it can import/export plain-text documents and that odf documents can be imported and exported as outlines. (I personally know nothing more of these than what info I found on the web, and you may well be able to find better alternatives.)

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.
