I use Microsoft Word to take notes in an outline form.  I know that I can open
and close my outline as it gets created, and this is moderately useful, but
what I most often do is re-order items within an outline level, and promote or
demote items.  I simply position the cursor anywhere within an item (which is
actually a paragraph), use my left hand to hold down Alt-Shift, and then use my
right hand on the arrow keys to move the item up, down, left (promotion), or
right (demotion).  This is so fast and so easy to learn and do that when people
watch me do it, they are amazed.  I do not need to move my fingers from the
keyboard to/from a mouse or use any other pointing device.  I have many times
taken notes as a team leader ran a meeting, and had my computer screen
projected for everyone to see my "minutes" of the meeting projected live for
everyone to see.
In my opinion, Microsoft Word is the single best "outliner" available.  I would
like to see similar pointing-device-free outlining functionality in all serious
"word processors".
