Oh, and yes - I have lists of lists and notes about notes and books of steps! One of the best solutions I have found is Microsoft One Note. Works on most devices. Synchronizes across devices. Let's you have notebooks with chapters that have pages per chapter. You can embed pictures, PDFs, videos, sound (even recording directly into a page, etc. It's all searchable including looking for text within images. You can link to web sites, to other notebooks, chapters, pages, or even paragraphs. You can use a stylus to write on the pages and auto convert to text, or leave it as an image that is still searchable. I have found it to be emensly useful in keeping track of my projects, steps, supporting documents and links to related web sites, etc... And it's free. Anyway - I wish I had this year's earlier so thought I'd pass it on.
