I which it worked as well. I sent an email to Omnigroup support and received the following response.
Thanks for contacting us with your question!
There are a couple ways that OmniFocus and OmniOutliner can work together. OmniFocus actually started out as a set of AppleScripts within OmniOutliner, called Kinkless GTD. So it makes sense that you would want an integration between the two!
I don’t know exactly what you’re looking for, since I’m not familiar with your workflow. Currently, OmniFocus can import an OmniOutliner document; the process adds the rows in as individual tasks that are put into your Inbox.
OmniFocus is also capable of handling attachments and links. If you wanted to attach an OmniOutliner file to a task in OmniFocus, you could do that by selecting the task and then either dragging the file from a Finder window into the Notes field, or selecting from the menubar: Edit > Attach File…
It’s worth noting here that when you option+drag a file into a Note in OmniFocus, you get a link to that file, not an attachment.
Now, the place this gets tricky is if you’re using multiple devices and you want to access a file from both devices. Right now there isn’t a way to do that–the file is still originally stored on a specific device, and attaching it to OmniFocus doesn’t mean that the OmniFocus app knows what to do with it when you want to open it.
My recommendation would be to use your Mac for the integration you’re looking for, since it works nicely when you stick to the same device.
Let me know if you have any questions or if anything’s unclear. I’m happy to help!
All the best,
So it sounds like you can treat the OmniOutliner document like any other attachment, but not “reference” the notes of a project in OmniOutliner from OmniFocus. Hopefully this will be something that they implement one day.
