OmniOutliner Essentials and Pro 5.2

The Omni Group released version 5.2 of OmniOutliner Essentials and OmniOutliner Pro, adding automation support through JavaScript (in addition to AppleScript) and improving overall performance when opening and using larger files. Both editions of the outlining and information organization app add expanded PDF attachments in HTML and HTML (Dynamic) exports that render inline when browser support is available; improve efficiency of .docx, .xlsx, and .pptx export conversions; fix layout issues in the HTML and HTML (Dynamic) exporters when viewed in Chrome or Firefox; and resolve a frequent crash that occurred with some international input methods on MacBook Pro models with a Touch Bar running macOS 10.13 High Sierra. 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, 38.7 MB, release notes, 10.11+)
