    It's rather the tvo plugin that provides optional integration with viki. If the viki support of the tvo plugin doesn't work anymore, you should rather tell the plugin's developer/maintainer.

    What features not yet included in viki should an outliner provide?

    thanks for your reply.

    I tried vim-tvo and it seems that it is still working with the latest viki if it is not perfect. The last time vim-tvo was updated was in 2006. The email of the author doesn't even work any more.

    Viki is perfect for organizing things. However, it is NOT easily used as a note taking tool. I am looking for the perfect tool for note-taking and organizing information before start my law school.

    Viki will work, but I just don't have the time to count "*" for different levels of headings.

    If it is about folding, you could also use lists and add "l" to the g:vikiFolds variable. There are several fold functions included with viki (see the use of g:vikiFoldMethodVersion in ftplugin/viki.vim) - depending on your editing style some of them have performance problems that could become more or less obvious. Not all fold functions support "l" though.

    Alternatively, you could fold by whitespace (see 'foldmethod' and 'fold-indent').
