Very limited functionality

OutlineText only supports the basic markdown syntax so no tables and no MathJax formulas. There was no presentation it did suppoort these extra features, but basic markdown support only is not very impressive. Minus one star.

Nor is there a preview window, then again this feature was not implied, I just expected one.

Initially I believed that the ability to rearrange content by dragging the headings in the left hand pane did not work but I just tried it again and it works fine. IMHO this is the application's major feature and is the main reason I got it. So this is good.

I emailed the developer but after a few days there has been no reply. Minus one star.

IMHO $3.99 for this app is on the high side for its capabilities but I thought to support the developer and will enjoy having this tool in my tool chest.

Great Idea! Immature.

For version 1.0.3 of Outline Text, on macOS Sierra:
Using right-click Open-With on an “.md” file, choosing OutlineText — causes a a Java error.
Also, moving things on the left doesn’t always work correctly — like moving a top level heading (#) with headings under it (## and ### lines), “forgot” that the top level heading text had a “#” in front of it. In other words “# My heading text” ended up as “My heading text” after I dragged-n-dropped on the left to move it between two other “# Heading” lines.

Hey … the undo function seems to work flawlessly. Pretty darned important, so thanks for making sure that is solid.

I’m not going to ask for a refund of my $2 because I’d like to encourage you to make this into an app that would fulfill the promise of what you have here. Truly, truly a great idea.
