OO5 and fancy export plug-ins


I just updated to OO5 Pro, but afterwards all my fancy export plugins are gone. Is there any way to bring them back? Is there any migration concept for old export plugins?

Is there any documentation for writing OO5 export plug-ins? I just could find https://support.omnigroup.com/oo4-plug-in-development/ for OO4. Where can I find a documentation of the new OO5 file format (e. g. a documented XSD or something like this)?

Thanks for any help on that issue.

OO4 export plugins should work with OO5 but they’ll need to be installed in the appropriate place for OO5 to see them.

Yours will be located in:
/Users//Library/Containers/com.omnigroup.OmniOutliner4/Data/Library/Application Support/The Omni Group/OmniOutliner/Plug-Ins

Or if you had the MAS version:
/Users//Library/Containers/com.omnigroup.OmniOutlinerPro.MacAppStore/Data/Library/Application Support/The Omni Group/OmniOutliner/Plug-Ins

You can double-click the .ooxsl files to install them with OO5 (unless OO4 happens to claim them in which case you’ll need to manually install them or associate the filetype with OO5)

For the OO5 format, the RELAX NG schema is posted here http://www.omnigroup.com/namespace/OmniOutliner/xmloutline-v5.rng
