OmniOutliner 2.4 for iOS is now available!

OmniOutliner 2.4 for iOS is a major update adding support for iCloud Drive (BETA) and includes a number of bug fixes. This release requires iOS 8.3 or later.


  • Document Browser - The Document Browser can now support external document storage providers such as iCloud Drive. (Beta)
  • Exports - A second MS Word export format has been added, DOCX (indented), which will replicate the outline structure outside of outline mode.


  • Accessibility - Significant work has been done to improve VoiceOver support.


  • Outline View - Tap and hold on a row will now correctly unselect the previously selected row.
  • Outline View - When creating a new document from the default template, it will once again open with focus in the first row.
  • Attachments - The first time an attachment with a duplicate name is added, it will now be correctly renamed.
  • Exports - The docx exports will use the sort order instead of the document order when applicable.
  • Exports - The docx exports have been changed to translate background colors to borderless cell fills which allows for a much greater color range than the highlight function.
  • Exports - The docx exports should now correctly handle row numbering that are formatted to have a prefix and/or suffix but no numbering format.
  • Exports - Docx export will now scale down images to fit a 8.5x11" size paper in Word instead of just scaling down to the column width of the OmniOutliner document.
  • Exports - Exporting to docx when there is an image attachment far down in the document will no longer result in a corrupt docx file.
  • Exports - The HTML exports will now correctly format duration values.
  • Document Browser - RTF files will now be visible in the document browser.
  • Stability - Fixed a crash that occurred when Quick Looking an image after viewing other options in the popover.

How safe is the iCloud BETA for document storage?

Hi @funkydan2, so far iCloud seems to handle our file format fairly well. Other external document storage providers that may appear in the list of available providers may not. We’re not able to control which other providers appear in the list, though, so as a precaution, files that are moved to another document provider will have a copy placed in the local trash on the device as a backup.

In case it helps, the Using Cloud Storage Providers section of our online documentation has more information, as does the Final Thoughts on Cloud Storage section.

Thanks @anne - especially for the second link. I think I’ll stick with OmniPresence!
