applications and ports games to Mac OS X, has updated OmniOutliner to
version 2.2, adding XML export and compatibility with Apple’s new Keynote
|<?php virtual(“/includes/boxad.inc”); ?>
OmniOutliner is a Mac OS X application that enables you to track multiple
to-do lists, with optional checkboxes so you can track your progress. It’s
available both in a limited free version and a licensed version that costs
US$30. The 2.2 update is free to registered users of 2.x.
XML export means that you can present outlines in several different new
formats through XSLT, a language for transforming XML documents into other
types of documents. with OmniOutliner, you can now use a stylesheet to
transform a document into HTML that Word can interpret as an outline.
Stylesheets can be created to generate other formats, such as TeX documents.
The Omni Group says it plans to provide stylesheets for various formats in
OmniOutliner 2.2 also provides import and export compatibility with Keynote
files. Importing loads the bullets and speaker notes from a Keynote
document. Exporting requires a theme, which can be selected in the new
OmniOutliner preference panel. Each top level item in OmniOutliner will be a
slide, and subitems will use the “Title & Bullets” master slide, as
specified in the theme. OmniOutliner notes can be saved as speaker notes in
the exported file.
