I’ve been assigned an extremely large project (compared to what I usually do). I estimate that there will easily be over 1000 topics and maybe many more, and I need to write an outline. I want to be able to move topics around easily as groups and promote or demote levels of groups of topics. I want to be able to expand or collapse topics.

Can you recommend any powerful outlining tools that feature these capabilities? I’m open as to cost--I’ll write a business case for the purchase of a new tool if necessary.

Word scares me in that I’ve heard horror stories about it “helpfully” renumbering outlines in some way other than you intended when you move content around.
