OmniOutliner 4.1.2 is now available for direct download and through the Mac App Store. It is a minor update that contains multiple important bug fixes.
- Stability — Fixed a crash encountered on launch and on document loading under rare circumstances.
- Stability — Fixed an issue with opening files that somehow had a named style applied to a row twice.
- Dates — Fixed a bug with storing dates under certain region settings such as United Kingdom, 12-hour clock.
- Exports — The file extension should now always correctly change when switching export formats.
OmniOutliner 4.1.1 fixes a couple technical issues requested by the Mac App Store.
OmniOutliner 4.1 adds intra-document row links, new toolbar icons, improved Microsoft Word export, as well as a number of other updates and bug fixes.
- Styles — The Row padding control has been added to the standard feature set.
- Toolbar icons — New toolbar icons with color have been added! Switch to Graphite appearance in System Preferences to use monochrome versions of those icons.
- Row linking — (PRO) Create links to rows to quickly navigate or reference other sections. To make a link, select a row and use Edit > Copy As Link. Paste this where ever you’d like to make a hyperlink to that row. The focused state will also be preserved in the link. Links will function in OmniOutliner standard if they exist but the Copy as Link option is a Pro feature.
- Word Export — (PRO) A second MS Word (docx) export has been added, Microsoft Word (indented). This will always preserve the outline structure by setting the indentation on each line.
Word Export — (PRO) A number of updates and fixes have been made to the Microsoft Word (outline) and Microsoft Word (indented) exports:
- Microsoft Word (outline) has the same basic functionality as the previous MS Word export but will now open in Outline view by default.
- Row numbering support has significantly improved. Under most circumstances it should match the numbering you see in OmniOutliner. If row numbering is used, the Microsoft Word (outline) format will indent your text to keep the numbering readable. Note– MS Word only supports up to nine outline levels, so, for level 10 and deeper, any row numbering will be inserted at the beginning of the line as normal text and may not correctly align with the other outline levels.
- The outline column will always be the exported column instead of the left-most column.
- Fixed a bug with exporting font colors of certain values.
- Multiple identical URLs in a document should now export properly.
- Fixed a bug with preserving some linked attachments.
- Interface — The method for checking if you have Pro features available has changed. Simply choose OmniOutliner > About OmniOutliner for details on the current version and licensing state of the app.
- Menus — The contextual menu will no longer show options that are disabled.
- Attachments — Improved support for linked attachments. There are still a couple bugs remaining but new linked attachments should work under most circumstances. Previous existing attachments, including those from OmniOutliner 3 will bring up a file browser to the directory containing that file asking you to select the file so permissions to access that file can be saved.
- Exports — Fixed a crash with HTML, HTML (Dynamic), and MS Word (HTML) exports that would occur when a named style inherits from another named style of the same name.
- Export — The writeFormattedNumbers key for export plug-ins is working again. This was causing HTML and HTML (Dynamic) to export unformatted numbers, sometimes showing much more decimal precision than expected.
- Styles — The When adding a row, use siblings’ style setting should now always behave predictably when on. Named styles will no longer carry over to the sibling when it is unchecked.
- Stability — Rows should no longer remain selected when moved into a collapsed section. This prevents a crash that would occur when trying to modify that hidden row.
