Outliner released for 9500/9300

SymbianWare have just released Outliner for the Nokia 9300 and 9500 Communicator. Outliner is a tool for storing your private data in a secure and organised manner.





Keep your private data in a secure and handy way, increase your creativity, catch new thoughts, and organize your ideas into a plan - anything from a shopping list to a complex business plan. Use Outliner to keep credit card and banking information (in secure and password protected form), make to-do lists, track expenses, manage tasks, write drafts, take notes, plan your activities, and much more.

Look and feel

You may be aware that you can use your communicator to store your data or tasks but you may not know how easy, comfortable, organized and good looking it can be!

The program's interface is intuitive and easy to use. It has two panes. One pane displays a hierarchical list of cards. The second one shows the selected card. You can switch between panes using the TAB key.

While you are in Card pane you can edit the card here. With full rich text editing - different fonts, colours, formatting styles, alignment, indents and spacing you will be able to create good looking and easy to catch cards.

Hint: You can even select and copy some text with formatting in Word application and paste it in Outliner card with all formatting and vice versa.

Hint: Placing cursor over some phone number, email or web address will allow you to dial the number, create email, or go to the selected web address.

Card creation, properties

To create new card press Ctrl-N. To see or change the existing card properties press Ctrl-Enter. A card will be created as a last item in the list (or as a last item of some level). If you want to insert a card in selected position you have to press Ctrl-Space. Name is a card name that will be displayed in hierarchical cards list.

Hints on navigation in hierarchical cards list

To collapse selected card press ''Left arrow''. Pressing left on already collapsed card or on the card that doesn't have sub cards will bring selection to parent card of the current card.

To expand selected card press ''Right arrow''. Pressing Right on already expanded card will bring selection to first sub card of the selected card.

Arranging cards in a list

You can move cards, change their order and even level (ownership). To move an item up or down you can press Ctrl+Up Arrow/Ctrl+Down Arrow.

Multi document system

Outliner supports Document based system (e.g. like Word application). It allows a user to create and maintain any number of documents containing lists and start them from desktop, file manager, etc. When Outliner starts it automatically opens the last used document. You can open another document, create new one, save current or even delete the current document using corresponding commands on the File menu. You can place Outliner documents (e.g. like Word files) anywhere on the device and start them from any location.

Hint: If you don''t use Nokia PC connectivity software that allows you to make full device backup and prefer to backup important files manually instead you can do it with Outliner documents as well.

Miscellaneous

Four zoom levels will help you to find the size that suits you best.

Also you can change panes sizes. Use ''Resize panes'' command on the View menu or press Ctrl+Left arrow/Ctrl+Right arrow to resize.

Planner and organizer

Outliner cards can be used not only to store your various data but also as a powerful organizing and planning tool.

You can assign a due date, priority, and completion information to any card. The latter can be a check box showing if this task is completed or not, a graphic progress bar or a text based progress bar indicating task completion percentage.

If a card has completion enabled you can use space to change completion status directly from view without going to card properties. If a card has a check box it will invert its state, if a card has text or graphic progress it will show dialog asking you for new percentage value of completion.

Moreover you can attach some contacts from your contact book or some files (Word documents, pictures, sound files, etc) to any card using Attachments command and you can view contacts directly in card attachments.

Hint: If a card has completion info, you can use ''space'' key to change completion state or percentage completion.

Security

Any Outliner document can be password protected and encrypted by Outliner. To enable security use ''Set Password'' command on the file menu. After you specify a password the Outliner document will be encrypted. Every time you open this document Outliner asks you for the password. No unauthorized person can open and see your document without specifying correct password.

Behind the screen

To keep your cards secure we use industry standard BlowFish encryption and MD5 message digest algorithms.

Passwords are not stored anywhere in the document or in any place on device to further increase the safety. Password verification is performed by checking digital signs.

All encryption/decryption is performed on the fly and transparent to user (without any noticeable delays and user interaction)

Note: please don't forget your passwords. Outliner security has no backdoors!
