MORE was marketed as: "The World's First Idea Processor." It allows the user to diagram outlines for oral presentations. The software could be used to create a Header, and under that (depending how deep you wanted to list ideas under the header) one could nest subtopics. These subtopics would appear under their specific subheaders as the subheader topic, heading, with a + sign to the left of that topic; and by clicking on the plus symbol the headings subsumed under that header would expand. For example:

Header: +Macintosh Computers

      +Computer construction


       -Power Supply


       -Software Titles

       -Software coding

        +Coding Restrictions

         -Uniformity of Menus

As you can see, by nesting the ideas, you can organize your thoughts and ideas by prioritizing them; you can then have a visual representation of the importance of your thoughts and ideas. During my time as a student in college I often used the software to prepare oral reports for class, and found it most helpful for keeping to my 'talking points.'

Additional info can be found here: (all versions can be downloaded from this link)

It is possible to expand a line item by selecting it with the mouse (or the arrow keys on your keyboard) then selecting View -> Expand Subheads, or pressing Cmd-, ("comma") on your keyboard. If there is nothing to expand, the option will be greyed out. When selecting a particular header, you can also expand all of the sub-headers below it by selecting View -> Expand All, or pressing Cmd-E. Headers and sub-headers can be collapsed by selecting View -> Collapse Subheads, or pressing Cmd-. ("period" or "full-stop").

As expounded upon in the Read Me accompanying this download, this copy of MORE was originally archived by Dave Winer on August 1, 1999. It does not represent the commercial package as it was originally released, and contains only the application file, and the Read Me itself.

DL #1 v1.1c - "The C stands for Color!" (Application only)

Works well on 6.0.8, some bugs on later Systems. (An "Out of Memory" error when displaying text in SSW 7, for example.) May also crash Basilisk...

The images in these downloads won't mount in System 6 as the system cannot create a Desktop file. Mount fine in SSW 7.
