Dear Eric,

I noticed that I prefer to create outlines like this (stupid example)

* Learn org-mode
   I start to read carefully the manual again. Esp. tables are still
difficult to use for me.
** Just to remember the most important table commands
    Here I will write down all the table stuff commands a long long
long text and maybe some tables.

  This text should belong again to outline 1. I just like to continue
writing since I just write in a chronological order. I read the manual
again and found some nice features I wasn't aware of ..more text.. .

Any idea how to achieve that ?

I do something similar but outlines don't allow for what you want.  I
use lists instead, particularly description (- XXX :: text) lists.
However, you would have to use list items for each paragraph as the
same problem of hiding will happen (the last item, when folded, will
hide any subsequent paragraphs).

Thanks for sharing the idea to use lists and thanks for using org-mode in a similar way like me ... that let me feel not to bad by abusing org-mode for my strange needs ;) . However, as you said it is rather the same problem with lists. Subsequent paragraphs always belongs to the last list or outline. As far as I understood org-mode I could maybe use drawers to achieve something similar to what I want. However, I wonder if there is a more easy method esp. in way of typing, rather then wrapping a start and end command around the "inline"-paragraph. For my day-to-day use I always try to make it as easy as possible otherwise I might be to "lazy" to use it.

Thanks again for sharing your idea.
