 IDEA TREE(TM) PC SOFTWARE HELPS TO TRANSFORM IDEAS INTO PROPOSALS,
 PRODUCT DESIGNS, MANUALS AND MORE
 WAITSFIELD, Vt., Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- A new personal computer software tool will help you organize your most complex thinking and writing tasks into simple idea units and then lead you from startup to completion.
 The security director of a famous West Coast Zoo used IDEA TREE to plan the zoo's alarm system. An officer of The Society for Technical Communication uses IDEA TREE for research and document development. Marketing managers employ it to create annual reports and proposals. Engineers use it to design products.
 Introduced by Mountain House Publishing, IDEA TREE(TM) Release 2.5 stimulates the creative process by displaying any project or composition as an upside down tree, similar to an organization chart. Built on idea units and "branching," instead of sentences and paragraphs, IDEA TREE helps you to brainstorm, organize and print any composition or project.
 Procedurally, users first develop a root or main idea. Primary associations form the next level; a process called "clustering." IDEA TREE's structure captures clustering by building a top-down tree on screen and positioning each cluster on the appropriate "branch." As clustering at lower levels begins to lead to solid ideas and organization, the program makes available an outline view of the tree; in effect a "snapshot" of the composition.
 While you think about associations resulting from clustering, additional relevant data, quotations, anecdotes, references and core points will come to mind. These become notes that IDEA TREE attaches to a designated idea. At any point you can draft text to expand a particular idea. This is accomplished through IDEA TREE's word processor and the text is attached to the idea, along with any notes. Ideas can retain unlimited note and document text.
 The general structure, content and pagination of any output can be checked through IDEA TREE's preview function. When the composition is ready for printing, IDEA TREE organizes the individual ideas into a complete document. Formatting facilities are then available to output the hard copy in finished form.
 IDEA TREE can also print out any tree in its pictorial form. This mimics the tree's structure as it appears on the screen.
 IDEA TREE runs under DOS 2.11 or later and requires a minimum of 512K memory. While it can run on a two diskette system, a hard drive is recommended. Users have free, unlimited 800 number technical support.
 IDEA TREE includes a 200 page manual, tutorial and self-running demonstrator. Also included is a copy of the book, "Power Thinking: Top-down Analysis For The Information Age."
 IDEA TREE retails for $69.00 plus $6.00 shipping and handling, and is available directly from Mountain House. It comes with a 30-day money back warranty.
