MORE was positioned as: Intelligent Idea Processing; Desktop Publishing Power; Desktop Productivity Power; Macintosh Power. Technically, it was described as an outline processor application that was created for the Macintosh in 1986 by Dave Winer and others that was not ported to any other platforms. An earlier outliner, ThinkTank, was developed for Apple II, Apple III, PC and then ported by Peter Winer to the Macintosh.
MORE was the result of combining three planned products into one expanding around the outliner. In MORE, the outlines could be formatted with different layouts, colors, and shapes. Outline "nodes" could include pictures and graphics.
The company that made these products, Living Videotext, merged with Symantec in July 1987.
In 1987, MORE had evolved into a tool that was used to create presentations, a category that ultimately would be dominated by PowerPoint when Microsoft chose to pass up on acquiring Living Videotext.
Acta was a software program for creating outlines. It was originally developed for the Apple Macintosh and released in 1986. Acta started as a Desk Accessory, presumably to be used in conjunction with a Word Processor. In 1987 Version 1.3 was bundled with MORE.
