OmniPlan 3.4 for Mac is now available!

OmniPlan 3.4 for Mac is now available for download on our site and the Mac App Store!

Release Notes:

OmniPlan 3.4 introduces paste support in the Network View, adds support for in-app announcements, and fixes numerous import/export, localization, and printing bugs.

This update removes import/export support for .mpx files. The .mpx file format is not supported by modern versions of Microsoft Project (saving as .mpx was discontinued in Microsoft Project 2000, the ability to read .mpx files was discontinued in Microsoft Project 2013) and we are not aware of any use cases in which .mpx is the best option for moving data in or out of OmniPlan.

  • Announcements — In-app announcement feature to display notifications from The Omni Group. This feature will only be used to inform users of important information: when a new major version has been released, for example, or if action is required to prevent data loss.
  • Network View — Paste is now supported in the Network View. If there is a selection in the Network diagram, pasted tasks will become children of the selected group and/or as dependents of the selected tasks. If there is no selection in the Network diagram, the new tasks will be independent of the existing tasks.
  • Gantt — Date header divider lines are now drawn correctly when the Gantt is resized.
  • Filtering — Addressed a bug that could cause new filters to not be saved if no other changes were made in the document.
  • Leveling — Leveling delays can once again be removed by clicking the x button in the Task Schedule Inspector.
  • Printing — Alternate row colors no longer disappear from print preview panel after changing scale.
  • Printing — Print preview panel now updates when task groups are expanded or collapsed in the Gantt.
  • Printing — Print preview panel now displays header/footer images. (Note, if you’re having trouble with this functionality, make sure your margins are big enough!)
  • Printing — Page Setup now remembers printer selection changes.
  • Printing — It is no longer necessary to export a file in order to change the page scale.
  • Microsoft Project — Values are now provided for the “% Complete” column when exporting to Microsoft Project.
  • Microsoft Project — Addressed a bug that caused exporting a project with no resources to trigger an error message.
  • Microsoft Project — Addressed miscellaneous bugs that could cause Microsoft Project import or export to fail.
  • Import/Export — Removed support for importing or exporting deprecated .mpx file format.
  • Import/Export — Removed support for importing .ooutline files created by OmniOutliner 2.
  • Import/Export — Corrected typos in export error logs.
  • Copy/Paste — “Copy as Link” now functions as expected in both Gantt and Network View.
  • Localization — Display Preferences are localized once again.
  • Localization — Dependency information is now localized in Chinese & Japanese.
  • Localization — The letter T is now recognized as a shortcut for day in the German localization.
  • Localization — Addressed an issue that could cause Resource Type buttons to be cutoff in the Resource Inspector in some localizations.
  • Stability — Fixed a handful of crashes.

OmniPlan 3.4.1 for Mac is now available as well!
