The 0.2.1 release of Argumentative has a sample transformation file to create a rudimentary structured essay from an argument map. Use the menu File / Export / Transform… and use the essay.xslt file to create the essay. Export to a text (.txt) file and use your favourite word processor to tidy up. Your argument needs to be made up of sentences (as a good argument should) and not have full stops in the text.
Argumentative is open source Argument Mapping software. It allows you to view and manipulate the structure of an argument in terms of a main premise and a hierarchy of reasons and objections.
