Outline for iPad and Mac has been updated to version 3.2. Newest Mac version includes OS X Services and improved tables tool. iPad version also provides more opportunities to create and edit tables, minor bug fixes and stability improvements.
Another time-saving feature of Mac OS X is Services that allows to quickly perform actions, using a contextual menu, instead of launching additional apps. This feature is primarily intended to provide capabilities of one app to another. Therefore, you can simplify multi-step process of data transfer between apps on your Mac.
Where to start? First of all, you need to make sure that Outline is in the list of enabled services. It will take not more than a minute, just go to System Preferences, click on Keyboard icon and select Shortcuts tab. Then click on Services to see the full list of available services. Find there “Send to Outline” and set tick opposite it. You can also disable services you might not use in order to make Services menu more convenient and applicable for your needs.
Now “Send to Outline” option will appear in the contextual menu that pops up when you right-click on file, image in the Finder or Desktop, selected text in Safari or in other apps. In the other hand, you can send data from Outline pages to other apps through the same contextual menu. You can also set keyboard shortcuts for this option from the Shortcut tab in System Preferences menu and get faster access.
We tried to make a process of table creation more user-friendly and accurate. In Outline for iPad you now have at your disposal special dropdown menu that brings more power to already existing options. This menu lets you get all features of working with tables in one place – separate button is situated on the toolbar. We also added extended tables capabilities in the contextual menu for Mac version. You can use this menu or new keyboard shortcuts to create, edit or delete your tables.
We added some navigation shortcuts as well, so don’t forget to learn about new hotkeys from Getting Started Guide.
