Thanks for the response and welcoming me to the form. I have checked out the RTF options but I didn’t play around with removing the default characters and doohickeys that mark the outline structure. I will give that a try.
Here’s a question for you. I’d like to dive more into the power of OmniOutliner and take advantage of its features for stylizing documents for ease in readability. The tutorials that I’ve found on the net are a bit out dated and not too in depth. Do you have any suggestions where I might find some good tutorials that can walk me through how to do these things?
Try these. If you haven’t read “Working in OmniOutliner” and the downloadable manual, you are doing yourself a disservice as these are both engaging and well-crafted to help the novice and experienced user alike.
Hi. I am new to Omnioutliner. I am just beginning my literature review for my dissertation and would like to use OO to do this. I am currently using Excel but would like to switch. Does anyone have a template they care to share? Or know of a source they could recommend to help me in this regard. Many thanks
Not that OO would not work but … far better tools for citation management do exist. Especially when you get to the back-end process to merge citations in to your document (in sequence and in proper format for the dissertation style). I might recommend …
Others might recommend DevonThink, especially for its ability to search for relationships among the documents themselves.
Whoa! Should we have a talk here about not trying to pound in a nail with a screwdriver. :-)
Interestingly…I have found that “trolling” other forums leads to similar feedback. I am currently using Papers for citation management. My need is altogether different. My request is focused on the ability to then filter based on methodology or participant, etc. Papers has tagging but you can’t really get a good visual on where/how the knowledge has progressed.
I will bet that others will recommend DevonThink rather than OO for this.
FWIW, I am on exactly the same course as you here. I am searching for a tool that will help me search + sort + parse through my citation database (stored in Mendeley) for key information, not just tag to or annotate in the citations documents themselves.
