ThinkTank 1.x

ThinkTank is an outliner program or "Idea Processor" that arranges notes and ideas in a hierarchy that you can easily re-arrange. It was marketed as a tool for writing document outlines, brainstorming, notes, and todo lists. But it proved to be a very popular program, not just for writers, but for anyone who wanted to organize and move around ideas.

Living VideoText was eventually acquired by Symantec, that also released Symantec MORE for the Macintosh and Symantec GrandView for DOS, based on ThinkTank.

There were version of ThinkTank for the IBM PC, Apple Macintosh 128k, Apple II, and Apple III. Reportedly even a later OS/2 version.

ThinkTank competed against Brown Bag software PC-Outline, Kamas on CP/M, and Ashton-Tate FrameWork's outlining feature.
