Tutorial Description

Give structure and clarity to any task. OmniOutliner will help you to focus on the important things and not waste time on endless formatting, locating the notes from last week or remembering great ideas that seemed to be so tangible, yet just vanish the next day.

OmniOutliner assumes the job of collecting, organizing and structuring the information you provide, so that you can concentrate on the essence of your work. People from many various disciplines can benefit from this tool, helping them to be productive and organised.

Sync documents in the background with OmniPresence to bring your thoughts together without relying on iCloud; organize numbers or progress by date with Smart Columns; do searches; add media, such as images or videos in any part of your document; add notes to rows, which can expand and collapse at your convenience; theme a document and quickly change its look; set up customized templates for every scenario; apply advanced styles from existing templates or from scratch; edit your outlines with information from AppleScript; and once it is all done export the document to a variety of formats, including HTML and Word.

From to-do lists, expense tracking and event planning to brainstorming ideas, jotting down notes and writing your life's masterpiece, OmniOutliner will help you to collapse the background noise to show just the relevant rows, the ones that reflect what really matters.

In this first of a two part series, Tim Stringer takes us through the basics of OmniOutliner on the iPad, and demonstrates document creation and how to re-structure your outline, once you have entered some initial information. For more advanced features, stay tuned for the next week's tutorial.

Excellent video and tutorial. I really like having the transcription available. The only thing I can think of that would be helpful is to have a button to jump forward or jump back say 15 seconds or so in the video.
Very well done. Thank you.


Excellent idea. I've asked Jamie (our web developer) to see how this could be implemented.
