The Omni Group has released OmniOutliner 4.1 with several improvements and new features for both the Standard and Pro editions, as well as improvements for exporting to Microsoft Word in the Pro edition (for our review, see “OmniOutliner 4 Refines the Outlining Process,” 31 January 2014). The outline and information organization app adds row padding control, brings color to the toolbar icons (which can be switched back to monochrome in Preferences), improves support for linked attachments, ensures that adding a row using a sibling’s style works correctly, and fixes an issue where rows remained selected after being moved to a collapsed section. OmniOutliner Pro adds a second Microsoft Word export (in addition to the outline export) that preserves the outline structure via indentation on each line, improves row numbering support when exporting to Word, and adds the capability to create links to rows for improved navigation and reference to other sections. ($49.99 new, free update, 46.4 MB, release notes, 10.9+)
