  • FWIW:

    ESC-x outline-mode


    * item one

    item one body

    ** item two

    item two body
    • Actually, the above example shows one top-level item with a second-level item nested inside it. A simple two item list would look like:


      And if you don't want to have to do a M-x ouTABoTAB every time you load your TODO list, just add this at the tail of the file:

      ### Local Variables: ###
      ### mode: Outline ###
      ### End: ###

      ...or define a mode hook for files named TODO (etc., etc., etc., TMTOWTDI) :D

  • Actually, the outline view in Word is really good. I find it indispensible when taking notes or planning the structure of a larger piece of text.

    The trick is to figure out the keyboard shortcuts for promoting/demoting text and moving things around.

    Alt-Shift left/right and up/down is the trick. But I had to create a macro to get back to the Normal style. These shortcuts work in the other view modes as well.
