New Features

  • (Pro Only) Added a new export type (docx) to OmniOutliner Pro that uses the OOXML format used in MS Word 2007 (Windows) and MS Word 2008 (Mac). This format can also be imported into Pages '09.
    • This is not completely finished yet but should be usable in most situations. If there are features not supported yet you would like to see or other feedback on it, please let us know at [email protected] Not everything can be supported due to the differences in the app though.
    • Current features of this export:
      • Each row in the OmniOutliner document is assigned its corresponding outline level. So when you go to outline view in Word, you will see the same structure as in OO. In other views you will see a flat list (the exception to this is if you used row labeling).
      • Row level styles, if any exist, will be used for the corresponding heading styles in Word.
      • Note text is not assigned an outline level and is treated like normal text but with the character style "Note Style" applied to it which is generated from the note style in the OO document.
      • Styles applied to the 'Whole Document' style in OO will be applied to the 'Normal' paragraph style in Word.
      • If any named styles are applied to text in the OO doc, those style characteristics will be applied directly to the text in Word. Word only supports having one style of each type (paragraph/character) applied to any given text so they can not be safely used as styles in Word.
      • Only the topic column will be exported (the one with the checkboxes and bullets).
      • Embedded files
        • Embedded file attachment support is very limited.
        • Currently only images are supported and only if they don't contain spaces in the file name.
        • Movies will not be supported and will simply show the name of the file that is suppose to be there.
        • Other embedded attachments are currently ignored as most other formats are not supported by Word when embedded.
      • Linked or aliased files will work the same as they do with OO, it will take the same absolute path to the file.
      • Row numbering can not be fully supported due to the major differences in implementation between OO and Word. It will work best if you use the same row labeling type for the whole document or constant for a given row level. Currently this works better when imported into Pages than it does in Word.
      • Background colors are converted to one of 16 colors as that is all you're allowed to select in Word.
  • Added a new pasteboard type "OmniDataOnlyTabularPboardType" that is compliant with OmniGraphSketcher. It is a TSV format that flattens the copied data and ignores checkboxes and handles.
  • Added a duplicate row function under the Edit menu.
  • Updated the software update framework to the auto-updater that is in use with our other apps. This provides the ability to update to a new version from within the app and have it installed automatically.
    • This update required increasing the operating system requirement to Mac OS X 10.4.8 or later for OmniOutliner 3.9 beta 1 and all future OmniOutliner versions. Mac OS X 10.3.9 is only supported in OmniOutliner 3.8 or earlier.
  • Added a two-week fully-functional trial period for unlicensed users. Trial licenses will no longer be used. After the trial period has ended, you will only be able to view files and export, editing will no longer be possible.

Stability

  • Hopefully fixed a crash most often encountered while closing the application.

Version 3.6.3 | Release Date: 2007-12-10 | Download

Version 3.6.3 (v143.24)

Mac OS X 10.5 "Leopard" Compatibility
- Updated OmniCrashCatcher so that it will return symbolic stack information under 10.5.
- Fixed a rendering problem with hi-DPI image attachments.
- Due to a bug in Mac OS X 10.5, autosaves of OmniOutliner documents occurring on non-active Spaces will cause that Space to become active. Hopefully this will be fixed in 10.5.1, but if it annoys you before then, you can disable the autosave indicator with the following command in Terminal:
defaults write com.omnigroup.OmniOutlinerPro3 LongOperationIndicatorDisabled -bool YES
or in OmniOutliner 3 Standard:
defaults write com.omnigroup.OmniOutliner3 LongOperationIndicatorDisabled -bool YES
We'll continue working with Apple to have this fixed.
- We no longer pass webarchive attachments to QuickTime; otherwise it would attempt and fail to load them with every coded at its disposal.
- Improved performance of dynamic menu items (file templates).
- Corrected transparency of dragged image attachments.
