What's New in Version 1.1.1
Fixed a problem that NeO crashes on MacBook Pros with the Touch Bar.
Many programming flaws!
Finally, a couple of months ago this app started working on MacOS Sierra. That is the reason why I am changing my review. The new version, however, has many programming flaws. One example is that all my favorite colors are gone and I only have “color 32” available (and I have 50 of the same thing). It won’t rename it, it won't change the color, and it won’t even restore to default! I have sent a report on this with a screenshot to developers to no avail.
Very powerful, steep learning curve. Has been updated continuously for years and years and years while others come and go. Great product, esp. once you invest the time in learning it. There are other outliners that are prettier, but I’ve yet to find one that is more powerful and feature rich. I do wish the Word export came out as an actual Word outline.
