Option-Click in Scroll Bars for Jump Scrolling

In Mac OS X in general, and thus in most native Mac OS X applications, hold down the Option key and click anywhere in a window's scroll bar to jump to that spot (rather than scrolling one screen).

And while the update also improves typing in long documents, Omni promises more optimizations and asks for examples of files that continue to perform badly to be sent to OmniOutliner is available in a Standard edition for $49.99 and a Pro edition for $99.99 (the latter with additional user interface elements and AppleScript support), and both the Standard and Pro editions are available in the Mac App Store.
