Append to OminOutliner document?


Is there any way to append directly to an OmniOutliner document, maybe through an Applescript?

I’d love to be able to add to my lists without having to manually open, scroll and save. I’m currently appending to text files directly, which is great, but I’d rather be using OmniOutliner documents for these lists.

Although it only uses a single active document, I know that OmniFocus allows this, so I wouldn’t be surprised if this feature is hiding in Outliner somewhere I haven’t checked yet.

macOS 10.13.6
OmniOutliner 5.3.1


Check out the bottom of the thread here for an AppleScript that can work with OmniOutliner opened or closed. I use a version of it all the time. @unlocked2412 is an AppleScript wizard!


AppleScript Wizard is right! This is just what I was looking for.

Thanks so much for pointing me in the right direction. I hope to use this to build an add-on for a launcher I’m using. Couldn’t have done it without you.
