TreeSheets is a mashup of many different program types including spreadsheets, mind mappers, outliners, PIMs, text editors and small databases. It has a tabbed interface and is lightweight and fast, using few system resources even with large files.

It's like a spreadsheet, but much more suitable for complex data because it's hierarchical. It's like a mind mapper, but more organized and compact. It's like an outliner, but in more than one dimension. It's like a text editor, but with structure. It is capable of many kinds of data organization, including todo lists, calendars, project management, brainstorming, organizing ideas, planning, requirements gathering, presentation of information, etc.

Functional in 64-bit and cross platform (Linux and Mac).

Wow, what a nifty, original application! You've probably never used an application like this one before. It has a unique approach to data entry; but I wouldn't name it "Treesheets" - I'd name it "TabSheets". It doesn't really have a "tree" like Windows Explorer File Tree or the tree in TreeDBNotes. It's sort of like using a tabbed Excel worksheet as an organizer/notebook. But it's really good at that. I give it thumbs up - you should at least try it out just to experience it's novel approach. Not to mention that the program is really well done.

The XP problem was just fixed. Apparently by default Visual Studio 2015 builds XP-incompatible binaries..

Note that emailing me or reporting them on will get problems fixed quicker, I just happened to read the comments above by accident :)

@Ennovy: Yeah, you're sadly right -- nonetheless, it's all that we have...

Maybe the exposure here will move someone to update it.

@Ennovy @Midas: that is indeed an old file.. the new one says this:

since development moved to GitHub, the list of changes here may not be up to date.
The most accurate list of changes will be GitHub commit history:

@Realist: what was confusing?

"@Realist: what was confusing?"

The entire idea of this program.

The author has not written even a decent tutorial.

Sep 24 2016

Ennovy 2016-10-07 13:53

@Realist: while in Treesheets, open the file tutorial.cts and read it :)

Realist 2016-10-07 17:00

I read that useless tutorial. As rubbish as the program itself.

Sep 24 2016

Ennovy 2016-10-07 17:12

@Realist: so the program is rubbish because you don't understand how it works and what it does.

Why are you feeding the troll?

@Smaragdus: you are right, of course
