Maple is a useful user-friendly outliner with
built-in word processor that enables you to create your own
hierarchical trees for storing information such as documents,
notes, photos, etc.
The dual-window interface, with quick-action hot buttons and drag-and-drop support, facilitates the building of your file tree. Selecting Add from the Node menu creates a new branch for your growing tree, which you can name or later rename. You can create unlimited nodes and sub-nodes and assign any document to each node. Clicking on the Delete Children button will delete all child nodes of a selected node. Choosing Collapse or Expand will expand or collapse your tree.
Maple imports and exports standard text files, OPML (XML format for outlines), Rich Text Format (.rtf), Word Format (.doc and .docx), Windows Write (.wri), Adobe PDF (.pdf) and HTML (*.html) files used by Microsoft Word and other word-processors.
Other options include complete control over text and tree appearance. Use any TrueType font installed on your system, control the font size and attributes (bold, italic, underscore, or strikethrough) Onscreen you can quickly increase or decrease text size, add super- or subscript text, and change the text alignment (flush left, centered, or flush right). You can also quickly create numbered or bulleted lists and insert tables. You can also convert character sets from OEM to ANSI, and vice versa. Maple lets you create custom styles for your text - define a font, face, attributes, color, alignment, etc. - that lets you easily apply a style to specific text. Great for headers, captions, or entire paragraphs of text you need to distinctively separate.
Documents can contain unicode text, such as a mix of English, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, etc.
Maple also has a built-in spell checker, and let you embed or link to objects and images. Other features include changing the case of text to all upper or lower, character map, font preview in the font selection window so you get a quick peek at what a font looks like, and Print Preview.
Maple offers several advanced commands of interest to the professional users:
