Re: Xy5 progress--and a query for you

Dear All

Are we trying to build a 32 bit version of XY4 or a version of NB12 that we like? Personally I want XY4 and all the features that contained. I am not bothered about new features from the latest versions of NB.

 Columns (parallel and snaking), Index, and Table of Contents have been parts of XyWrite at least back to version II or II+, so they are probably part of the core code. Taking them out may be harder than upgrading the code. Outlines came considerably later, but many people find them (in their collapsible form) very helpful for organization and perspective with longer documents.
