Tree 2.0.1

Light­weight out­liner of choice

Mac Format - - RATED - $9.99 (about £6.50) De­vel­oper Kazuhiro Kawana, topoftree.jp Re­quires 64-bit pro­ces­sor

This light­weight out­line tool can tackle plain or rich text from var­i­ous for­mats in­clud­ing OPML and Word, and al­lows tree views to be ex­panded ver­ti­cally or hor­i­zon­tally. Ver­sion 2.0.1 re­tains what’s al­ready great, in­clud­ing a min­i­mal­ist UI and multi doc­u­ment ac­cess from Sa­faristyle tabs – you can now add new tabs with a dou­ble-click on the tab bar or by us­ing the ‘+’ but­ton. The ad­ja­cent but­ton makes it easy to move a se­lected fam­ily into a new tab.

Tree re­wards users who learn key­board short­cuts and this ver­sion adds sup­port for ap­ply­ing colour la­bels with­out tak­ing your fin­gers off the keys.

The soft­ware is now 64-bit na­tive and fea­tures shiny new icons. Th­ese fea­tures may not be wor­thy enough for ex­ist­ing users to pay for a new ver­sion, but the ask­ing price is fair.

Our only gripe is the lack of for­mat­ting op­tions when ex­port­ing to PDF, which can spread hor­i­zon­tal views across mul­ti­ple pages. JR Book­wal­ter

Tree 2.0.1 may be a mod­est fea­ture up­date, but it’s still the best Mac ap­pli­ca­tion for cre­at­ing out­lines.
