    • 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.

      • 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!!!

          • Add support for OPML 2.0

            I love the iOS interface, but I bought Outliner hoping that I could interoperate with emacs org-mode on my computer using https://github.com/edavis/org-opml . The workflow would be very nice using Outliner with Dropbox Sync: just open the Dropbox file in emacs to edit on a computer, and the changes should sync back to iOS outliner.

            Unfortunately that library only supports OPML 2.0. My feature request is to export OPML 2.0 instead of OPML 1.0 when saving to Dropbox.

            Thanks for considering!

            • improve the web application; e.g. folders or tag for organising; optimised layout

              please add the "open in" function so that I can open an outline in any mind mapping file or any app using opml

              • A quick way or button to toggle "hide completed items"

                There is a way to hide completed on the settings menu, I would like a faster way to toggle this, perhaps a icon on the "Outline" pop-out button bar. When I use Outline as a shopping list I toggle between show completed and hide depending on whether I am building a list or in the store.

                    • Archiving, tagging and synced order to online version to mirror iPad/iPhone

                      Others have asked for the tagging (to hide genres you aren't working on right now) too for the online version, not a new request I see. My addition to this is the arching as I want to keep completed projects but not see them online. The online version lets you reorder the outlines from the default order of creation but I don't see why I have to do it again if I've done it already on the iPad. I basically want the interface to mirror the way it works on the iPad.

                        • Add spreadsheet style ability to count numbers inside square brackets within a node or sub node.

                          This idea would be handy for budgeting minded shoppers. Eg. Fruit salad [$4]
                          Like a spreadsheet it will count in a column or child node. This could be a toggle on/off for each new child node if you want it active. [$X] an open and closed bracket is needed along with dollar sign for each line in child node to be counted if feature activated.

                          People could use this for calculating travel plans for example. Dropping in and out of the child node list items to fine tine costs. Would save alot of time having to manually calculate.

                          • 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.

                              • Synchronize tags associated with outlines across devices.

                                When I create an outline on one device and associate a tag with it I can categorize the outline into groups. These tags, however, are not carried forward during synchronization through dropbox. I suggest adding the ability to synchronize tags through the automatic synchronization feature within Outliner.

                                    • Timestamp quick macro?

                                      I'd love any easy way to stamp (type) in the current date & time.

                                      That and be able to see a per-item timestamp on an element in the outline. I suppose this would lead to having both a created and a modified timestamp.

                                      But a quick timestamp macro would be great in the meantime.

                                      • Make "mobile view" of Outliner. (or an Android app)

                                        The web version is too small and not practical to use on an Android phone. Can you either make an Android App or make a mobile version of the website that adjusts to the users device.
                                        There are now more Android users in the world than iOS. Please take our money.
