    • add attachment

      Hello,
      I hope you could allow adding an attachment.
      Could be photo or PDF, etc.
      As some outlines just require an image to better describe the item.
      Thank you.

      • Ability to lock Move Mode on.

        I use Carbon Fin as a To-Do list. The ability to change the order/priority of items by dragging/moving them is essential. Having to toggle Move Mode on & off to accomplish this key functionality is inefficient/annoying.

        • Ability to drag between outlines including moving a whole outline to inside another outline.

          Ability to drag between outlines including moving a whole outline to inside another outline. I use CarbonFin for a master to-do list. I use outlines as categories such as “Work,” “Home,” “Weekend,” “Tonight,” and “Urgent.” Sometimes I’ll need to move items between outlines/categories including even a whole outline to inside another.

          • Make the menu bar configurable

            I realize that different people use the app in different ways. For me, Copy and Paste are basic so it’s a nuisance to have to access them through the ... menu. So how about a preference pane to let the user select which buttons to include in the top menu, up to the available space (so the user would rank them in order of priority). In full screen mode I see a lot of empty space on that menu line. Any button bumped by limited space would be switched to the ... menu.

              • Thanks

                Not a request. Just a note of thanks. I rely on your outlined for many tasks in my life and have for more years than I care to remember. You keep it updated, keep it working with the latest system and maintain it so that whenever I need it, be for a shopping list or to outline the teaching plan for a day or just to brainstorm and idea its there to help.

                Thank you very much!!!

                • Allow hyperlinks

                  I would like to have the ability to add a hyperlink. I compare prices for items I buy in the supermarket and it would be nice to have hyperlinks to go to the other web pages.

                    • Please don't ruin it with a bazillion features.

                      A lot of posts here are asking for add'l features ("like programX has"). Please don't ruin this simple, efficient app with the same pile of features every other outline/task program has. If I wanted all the crap in programX, I would be using programX. I use CarbonFin Outline because it's simple and flexible. I'm not here to do GTD.

                      Don't get me wrong, there are features that could improve functionality. Just please be judicious and make sure we can turn off features we don't want.

                      • Android version of CarbonFin

                        I'd love to see this as an Android app. Considering that Android is competing so well against Apple, why keep it only as a Web and Apple app?

                        • More user control over fonts and colors

                          It would be very useful to allow users of Outliner to pick their own font sizes for entering information. The ability to make different line entries different colors would also be great.

                            That way you could use a Tag such as today or urgent and be able to see those items that need to be done right away.

                              I wish to be able to toggle off and on from items that are checked to the items not checked. Just like you are able to do on the Iphone app.

                                • Folder or Tag function

                                  Please support "create folder function" or "tag" function.
                                  OutlinePro has this feature but offen goes down.
                                  I like carbonfin outliner because it is stable and fast.
                                  So for me, it is going to be perfect app if this app supports
                                  folder management function. Or Tag feature would be very appreciated.

                                  I believe the more you create files the more you want folder or tab features.

                                  I hope you understand my request with above broken my English.
                                  Thank!

                                        • Automatic backup within the app.

                                          Data loss is one of my biggest fears. I would love to see the app have an automatic backup capability to include having the choice of how many backups to maintain. (for example 1-5 backups). I would be willing to pay an in-app purchase for this capability on the iPad. Thanks
