Don't just collect your notes, put them in an outline to recall and review them faster. You can use diferent outlines in different WhizFolder files. Note that WhizFolders is not a Mac outliner program. But some of our users are using it on Mac with the help of virtual machine software like Parallels, VMWare or similar programs.

What the users are saying about WhizFolders as a Note Taking Software and Outliner

  • "I use it for my research and I can't imagine a writing program that is more efficient. It's the perfect tool for any multipotentialite who loves nothing more than to have a tool that organizes and connects the wide range of ideas and thoughts we have floating around in our head."
    Geoseph Domenichiello

  • "Whizfolders is superior to anything else I've used, and the addition of the notes organizer and the calendar makes it even better. I write weekly articles for our local paper and this keeps me more organized then ever before."
    Galen Ray Schwochow

  • "What I appreciate is your focus on notes. I'm so tired of programs that start out well-composed but then think that they must add more and more features to become 'multi-purpose' and end up clogging themselves with lots of junk that most users don't need or want. Notes are at the core of what most of us do, and a program that optimizes note-taking and management will always be of great value."
    Bill Kelly

  • "This is excellent software. I'm writing a book and I've tried EVERYTHING--... and at least three dozen other programs to help me organize my writing and this is the one program that does everything I wish the others did. You have really covered all the bases."

  • "I use Whizfolders on a daily basis and frankly would be "lost" without it. Recently, with Vista, I was having the picture insertion problem and it has been aggraving me for months. After downloading and installing the new version and running the fix menu item - it worked like it used to on XP and I was so pleased! I hope you are planning on keeping that feature in future versions. Thanks for what you do and the art you paint in your masterpiece!"
    Bertie Pittman

  • "I find Whizfolders a dream program - so versatile and quick - even with very large files."
    Edwin Price

  • "You have an excellent product which is my default tool for documentation and I would not wish to give it up."
    Trevor Lukey

  • "Your customer support is great and goes far beyond expectations."
    Kirk Stromberg

  • "I'm very happy with Whizfolders-- great piece of software!"
    Doug Wilgus

  • "WhizFolders has become an essential tool in my practice and my teaching. As a lawyer, I use it for all kinds of legal research, outlining articles for publication, noting important judgements, structuring notes and outlines for complex drafts and more. As a lecturer, it is invaluable for organizing lectures and lecture notes. Its hyperlinking and web-research capabilities are without parallel."
    Gautam Patel

  • "I am very happy user of Whizfolders. It is the proprietary program which has become my information manager (having now discarded many others.)"
    George Novan

  • "I love using Whizfolders, it's a perfect fit for so many of my activities. I access it everyday several times a day."

  • "Thank you for this great program!"
    Ellen Nuber

Granted, you may be collecting notes even when on the move, with a mobile notes organizer app like evernote or onenote. But can you make sense of all these collected notes as a cohesive entity?

For many activities like writing, learning or planning, just collecting and placing related free format notes in notebook files or being able to search by tags is not enough. That's about all that a Notes Organizer program can do. To go further than that, you need an outliner software to arrange these notes in a hierarchy to make them really useful. Imagine having a text book without a hierarchical table of contents. That's what a Notes Organizer program is without the features of an Outliner.

Whether you are making notes for writing, research or study, there is always a need to constantly rearrange your notes to make better sense of them. See many examples, later on this page.

Get WhizFolders, a Two-pane Outliner and Organizer for all your notes, ideas and writing projects. Think, write and learn better with this amazing tool!

The idea in WhizFolders is to manage and move the notes just by their "titles."

Know more on how the outlining is different in WhizFolders as compared to a word processor, and what advantages you get with such an approach of outlining the notes by their titles. Know more...

Outlining features that you won't find elsewhere.

Take a look at the major distinguishing Outline Software features of WhizFolders in a section below. Something like word-wrapped outline items sounds simple but is difficult to implement because each item in the list gets a different height. Know more...

Logical search with AND, OR

You can find one or more notes easly by doing a boolean search for words with AND, OR, NEAR.

Print full or partial list

Just select complete or partial list of notes and do a print or export to get a merged draft that you can use in your word processor for those final finishing touches. A copy, paste operation can also merge the selected notes, with or without headings, with or without level indents.

Clipboard auto collect

A note is automatically pasted when you do a copy to clipboard in another application. There is no need to switch back and forth between the other application and WhizFolders.

Web clippings

When you paste information from a web site, the location is automatically pasted for reference. This is a great way to quickly collect information from the Internet and later research it by using the links pasted with them.

Highlighting a note in the list

You can highlight specific notes in the list by changing their highlight color or by changing the icons.

Connect notes with links

You can insert links that allow you to jump from note to related notes. Helps tremendously when reviewing and brainstorming the notes.

Bookmarks for files and web

You can insert links going to external files, folders and web sites. So you can use WhizFolders as a launchpad or bookmark manager with the added feature of keeping helpful notes about those links.

Inituitive copy, paste with merge

Copy, paste works just the way you would want it to work. If you copy some notes and paste them in the same or another list, the child notes are automatically pasted. If you paste them in an external application like Microsoft Word, a merged copy is pasted.

Precise drag and drop

When dragging notes in the tree list from one position to another, precise drop marks appear to guide you as to where the dragged notes will be dropped. You can drag and drop multiple notes and even complete branches of notes. Alternatively, buttons are also there to move or change levels of the notes in the tree list.

Word compatible RTF export

You can export the merged outline (a bunch of notes) in Word compatible RTF or outline format. This helps give fine finishing touches to your final draft in Word.

Todo List or Task List

You can turn your notes list into a simple, free format To Do List by showing Checkmarks on each note. See the presentation for an example.

Advanced outlining features

If you have only done outlining in an editor or word processor, this is different! Read more.

The note titles are outline items

In WhizFolders, you outline the titles of the notes in a powerful tree list with drag and drop features. If you have never outlined in a list before, you will love this aspect. See the presentation to know how this gives you the combined power of an outliner and an organizer.

Word-wrapped outline items

You don't have to horizontally scroll the outlining list to see complete note titles. Each title is word-wrapped.

Hoisting and hiding

You can hoist part of an outline to concentrate on it. Other parts of the outline are hidden from you to avoid distraction.

View combined outline of notes

WhizFolders is primarily a two-pane outliner. But at times, you want to view the complete outline along with note contents, indented. Deluxe edition supports this feature.

Within minutes of using WhizFolders, you will get ideas on how you are going to use it for many different tasks. Its applications are only limited by your imagination.

On the
Demos page, there is an interesting Presentation on how you can use WhizFolders in many different ways--for writing, for learning, as a textual calendar, and a to do list. These are just the starting ideas. Once you get the hang of it, what you can do is only limited by your imagination.
