OmniOutliner Essentials and Pro 5.0.3

The Omni Group has released version 5.0.3 of OmniOutliner Essentials and OmniOutliner Pro, a maintenance update that ensures that Launch Services recognizes OmniOutliner as the default app for .ooutline files (regardless of other installed apps). Both editions of the outlining and information organization app fix a bug that caused style attributes not to update after moving between rows with arrow keys, ensure that pasting data from earlier versions of Excel no longer result in a PDF attachment, and fix some issues for Autosize settings with columns.

OmniOutliner Pro also receives some exclusive updates, including fixing some additional column resizing bugs, resolving an issue with changing the background color of the Column Titles style, ensuring correct use of the sidebars after importing a plain text or rich text file, and fixing a crash triggered by collapsing a section in the keyboard shortcut list.

OmniOutliner Essentials is priced at $9.99 ($4.99 upgrade from any previous edition of OmniOutliner), while OmniOutliner Pro retails for $59.99 (with a $29.99 upgrade price). OmniOutliner 5 is available from the Mac App Store as a free download (providing a 2-week free trial) with options for unlocking Essentials and Pro features at $9.99 and $59.99 respectively. ($9.99 new for Essentials, $59.99 for Pro, $4.99/$29.99 upgrades, 26.6 MB, release notes, 10.11+)
