I assumed data capture (screen, web page or file - especially the first two); hadn't considered the other option. But you are right, the question was all about constructing the manuscript.

a) Is my logic sound? And what can you add?Most of these things are choices, and there are many programs that can do the equivalent.-Steven Avery (July 22, 2018, 11:12 AM)
b) If it is sound what are some of the RightNote alternatives and how do they compare?-Steven Avery (July 22, 2018, 11:12 AM)
I've been thinking about whether there are alternative workflows that don't include spreadsheets.There aren't alternatives that perform the same function, although most writers won't bother to check and will just try to keep it in mind.-Dormouse (June 24, 2018, 08:51 AM)
my 2 Cents when it belongs to Writing "Help and Manual" is great authoring SoftwareI don't know it at all, but looking at its features, I can see that you might be right.-KodeZwerg (June 24, 2018, 07:24 AM)
As a pseudo-card based systems I would consider Protopage. It is much more than a Start Page. And is becoming my central organizer.I can see how a journalist or blogger might use Protopage or Linoit, but I'm not sure otherwise how it fits into a writing workflow. Since I'm also personally not looking at cloud programs (variable connectivity), so maybe you could explain how you see it working?-Steven Avery (June 22, 2018, 05:36 PM)
There will be many alternatives to NoteZilla which can be used and some may be better. I was using it as an example of how a sticky note program can be useed in a process by addding a very flexible corkboard alternative and a flexible ability to put onscreen info that you are referring to in the current writing. Only functions as a limited and particular part of a workflow and wouldn't suit everyone. The key to its working is the browser control panel: if that's good enough any sticky note program should work.I've now put in a card based systems section. Gingko, NoteZilla. Google grouping ... Keep.-Dormouse (June 01, 2018, 08:01 AM)
PNotes .net version always is always an alternative to Notezilla, although the robust NotesBrowser in NZ might be one plus, where each program has 10 plusses and minusses.-Steven Avery (June 22, 2018, 05:36 PM)
I find that it has poor ergonomics for active use with the mouse. Keyboard shortcuts can be set to please, but the right-click menu is very limited meaning that many common operations require going to the menu.However, the developer seems responsive and I'm hopeful that this will be addressed.-Dormouse (June 13, 2018, 05:57 PM)
RightNote has a perfectly good word processor, but is not aimed at writers. If I were using the information in it - or in Evernote - I would have no problem in using it to write; otherwise I would choose something else.Having spent some time testing out the RightNote editor, I find that it has poor ergonomics for active use with the mouse. Keyboard shortcuts can be set to please, but the right-click menu is very limited meaning that many common operations require going to the menu.-Dormouse (June 02, 2018, 02:04 PM)
I don't understand how business works-mouser (June 04, 2018, 11:51 AM)
I hope you are also aware of Tim Powers' The Anubis Gatesw. I only read it once, long ago, but it seemed to me a fantasy masterpiece.I became aware of it when I checked out what else he'd written. Haven't read it yet, but intend to. Glad to see a recommendation.-rjbull (June 03, 2018, 03:53 PM)
Dr. Gottman has spent decades studying relationships and is the foremost expert on them.Hesitate to weigh in here, but I think it is an exaggeration to call John Gottman the foremost expert on relationships. Or an academic. He was a clinical academic, which is quite a different thing. His research and statistical approaches were somewhat problematic, although that isn't unusual in clinically oriented research. If you want an academic view, you could try one of the books by Steve Duck (though his interests have widened in recent years).-Deozaan (June 02, 2018, 10:27 AM)
to have a call-note log you have to relate a contact to their events.Can't you do this using links?
Is there a way to get this from the Rightnote functionality?-Steven Avery (June 02, 2018, 11:35 AM)
I think visual as in you can visualize the organization better in that horizontal format. At least, I've found that I do.That ties in with designs using tabs. Most people work better with a grid system rather than everything being on a single tree (vertical or horizontal - though which is vertical and which horizontal has an impact); we interpret the organisation differently according to how it is presented even when it is structurally identical. I don't think that is actually visual, more the way this particular presentation makes it easier or harder to correlate with the organisation we have in our minds. It's one of the issues I was going to address in my conclusions.-wraith808 (June 01, 2018, 11:41 AM)
