    • 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

        • Sync with iCloud

          Nutze Outline schon seit Jahren
          Hätte jetzt gerne noch einen iCoud Sync mit der dazu passenden OS X native App. DMit die Daten nicht alle verstreut rumliegen.

            • Make a “dark theme” on paid iPhone App

              Hi, thanks for created carbonfin outline app, I used on my iPhone everyday.

              Because I use too much, the app white background become too bright to my eye, my eye feel hurt often.

              Cloud you add “Dark Theme” to iPhone paid app?

              Thanks in advance!

              • Select item and a Popup menu appears with top items - select top item that you want to move the item to appear under.

                This would make moving items in big outline easier to move —rather than only using the drag and drop feature. Just select “the top” item you want any item to appear as a sub item and then it’s moved there.

                BTW love your app!

                • 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!!!

                  • Sync with Onenote

                    I want to use Outliner in Windows more easily than the web.
                    Of course, the Windows version is the best.

                    • hierarchical zoom

                      Outliner allows hierarchical zooming, i.e. zooming into a zoomed item. But there is no stepwise way back. If you close an item you get to the top level instead of the level containing the zoomed item.

                      • allow item formats

                        I have used CarbonFin for data entry on an iPad since Numbers is so primitive. For data entry, it would be helpful to be able to specify for each item the initial keyboard mode for adding text to it: numeric or alphabetic, and lower case, capital, or locked upper case, analogous to the way a spreadsheet cell can be formatted as text or numeric.

                        • add text to voice to the application

                          I'm an active user of your outliner and also a pilot. I have created checklists for use in various stages of flight. If I could "hear" the line I'm suppose to do next then I could keep my head up and accomplish the task without distraction of looking at the item. When the task is completed, then I would like to say "CHECK" and go to the next line. This application should be first developed for an iPad or iPhone as most flight applications use this platform and it needs to be independent of internet during flight.
                          This application would…

                          • I want to se nuber of (top level) items per outline in the overview.

                            Does my ikea wishlist contain any items?
                            How many at-home todos do I have?
                            Do I even have an item in my buckey list?

                            I want to be able to see this from the overview in ”outlines” view.

                            • Dropbox for Online

                              Why can’t I work on Outlines stored in Dropbox with Outliner Online? I work on iPad *and* MacBook. Don‘t want to switch apps or import/export back and forth all the time. The CarbonFin storage is not an alternative: I can‘t rely on something free I don‘t know anything about. Sorry.

                                • Interface Revisions

                                  Simplifying/streamlining some interface elements would be nice. Like the icons for individual outlines on the "Home" page. And the disclosure triangles and "diamond bullets" for each list item. These get kind of busy and crowded, especially if an item is also a task with a check box.

                                    It takes time to scroll down to the last item in a list or the first. Could we have a button for doing these functions?

                                    • Carbon Fin in the dock

                                      I just put Carbon Fin in the dock on my Mac with this AppleScript:

                                      tell application Safari
                                      open location https://cfoutliner.appspot.com
                                      activate
                                      end tell

                                      (Put quotation marks around Safari and around the location address above. They don't show properly when I place them in this message.)

                                      • add Textexpander support

                                        the use of textexpander snippets would make outliner even better (like entering a date or often used names or titles, etc.)

                                          TextExpander was supported in a much earlier version. However, it had to be removed at one point due to iOS incompatibility. By the time TextExpander was compatible again, the OS had native support for simple text replacement, so it was never added back. See Settings > General > Keyboard.

                                        • restore

                                          I would like to have a function to restore the possibility of accidental deletion or a message to confirm once deleted.
