There's no reason everything has to be in one program. It's not necessarily more convenient.
I find that my workflow gets interrupted when I have to switch programs to edit what I just wrote, but I obviously work differently to most authors.
I write a scene, edit and polish it, write the next scene, etc., so that my finished manuscript, barring proofreading, is actually finished. I also outline AFTER I write the scene. Just notes of anything significant that happens in the scene, so that I can refer back and find it easily later if I need to check/modify it.
For a work mode like mine, having everything in one program would work best.
Many tools, many ways, and our different minds. Outlines can interrupt creativity, perhaps. Having the exploration then the outline once you've gone through. Corkboard is great for that.
