  • Styles β€” The Row padding control has been added to the standard feature set.

  • Toolbar icons β€” New toolbar icons with color have been added! Switch to Graphite appearance in System Preferences to use monochrome versions of these icons.

  • Row linking β€” (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 still function in OmniOutliner standard if they exist but the Copy as Link option only exists in Pro.

  • Word Export β€” (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 β€” (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 rest of the outline.
    • 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.
  • Menus β€” The contextual menu will no longer show options that are disabled.

  • Exports β€” 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 β€” The writeFormattedNumbers key for export plug-ins is working again. This was causing HTML and HTML (Dynamic) to export unformatted numbers, sometimes showing way more decimal precision than expected.

  • Styles β€” 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 β€” 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.


If you were crashing on 10.9, please try build r211081 or later.
