OmniOutliner Columns

I am attempting to create an outline that would use columns. According the User Guide, there should be a way to add columns from the tool bar. I am just not seeing that option. Would someone please tell me where I might find it? I have looked through all of the menus and I must just be missing it,

Sorry for the confusion here. It sounds as though you’re looking at the wrong help document for your edition of OmniOutliner, as additional columns are a Pro-only feature of OmniOutliner 5, along with custom styling, filters, and a variety of other features. This option is not available in OmniOutliner 5 Essentials. To access the OmniOutliner 5 Essentials help, use the “Help” option within the app itself, or click the “OmniOutliner 5 Essentials” link on the Manuals page of our Support site.

A full overview of OmniOutliner’s Pro-only features can be found on our website here.

OmniOutliner 5 Essentials offers a streamlined feature set which offers a single-column layout; here’s a video overview.

If you’re using a free trial of OmniOutliner for Mac, you can switch to the Pro feature set now by going to Menu Bar > OmniOutliner > Free Trial Mode.

If you’ve already purchased OmniOutliner Essentials and are interested in upgrading to an OmniOutliner 5 Pro license to access this feature, or would like to trial the Pro feature set before upgrading, our Sales team would be happy to assist further.
