What would you specifically expect ? Would you like to see that item in the context of its parent, in the main outline with no focused rows, perhaps leaving the filter and scrolling to that specific matched row ?..there are several possibilities in a OO outline, I think.
1 - I don’t have an iCloud folder; so I created ‘Omni Automation’ in ~/Library/Application Support.
2 - I put everything in that folder; although it didn’t actually include a specific file, .omnioutlinerjs in that zip - even accounting for the fact that it begins with ‘.’… I used the command line. Am I missing something, please?
I can now see how to run an Automation; and yours to reveal the parent directory of the selected item works perfectly, and is much appreciated!
