OmniOutliner 4.0.1

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

The Omni Group has released OmniOutliner 4.0.1 [1], a maintenance release to the flexible outline and information organization app (reviewed this week by Jeff Carlson in “OmniOutliner 4 Refines the Outlining Process [2],” 31 January 2014). The new release updates a couple of templates (including Blank and Muted) and adds the new Compact template (essentially the same as Blank but with no row or note padding), plus adds a new tutorial section to the in-app help. The update also fixes issues with sorting, styles, and HTML exports; ensures inline images are displayed when using Quick Look; and disables Tooltips for truncated rows until they can be properly implemented in a later release. Also, as noted in Jeff’s article, version 4.0.1 introduced a bug where the outline doesn’t show the results of Move keyboard commands when the cursor is within a row. Omni is aware of the bug, and it should be fixed in the next release. OmniOutliner is available in a Standard edition for $49.99 and a Pro edition for $99.99, with the latter receiving AppleScript support, additional export formats, and a number of interface customizations. Note that as of this writing, neither the Standard [3] or Pro [4] editions in the Mac App Store have been updated to version 4.0.1. ($49.99 new, free update, 43.3 MB, release notes [5])
