Spin Through Toolbar View Options

Although many people never change their toolbars from the default settings, all standard toolbars on the Mac offer six states: icon only, text only, and icon and text, with all three coming in normal and small size. You can change them by choosing View > Customize Toolbar.

But there's a shortcut that makes it easier to check out each variant. Simply Command-click the toolbar lozenge at the upper right of a window, and the toolbar switches to the next view. Click it enough times, and you cycle back to the start.

Does it have Dropbox capabilities?

It doesn't. The Omni Group has said they don't plan to add Dropbox as an option. I'm not sure why, but my suspicion is that they don't want to rely on a third-party company to host stuff like that (even one with a good track record), in favor of their own iCloud implementation. Or perhaps it has to do with how records within an outline are synced. (Clearly, I'm not a programmer, so I'm just guessing.)
