Full screen view for OmniOutliner ?
 
I would really welcome a full-screen view in OmniOutliner 4.

WriteRoom does it very well (Window > Enter Full Screen Mode)

and even Microsoft is making an effort with Word 2011 (View > Full Screen) though theirs is hampered by a distracting high-contrast white to background edge ...

At the moment my work-flow has to move from WriteRoom to OO, which works if I keep to a TaskPaper-style indentation format in WriteRoom.

It would be liberating to be able do all my drafting in 004, with a full screen view for the early stage of getting things down in an undistracted way.

The OS X 10.7 [I]full-screen[/I] view seemed at first dysfunctionally wide in OO3, but I notice that you can resize the editing window and have a dark linen background.

I'm using Keyboard Maestro macros to do this is there a system-wide (or Omni-specific) GUI approach ?

I am told that this is an open request, so perhaps something for 004 ...

In the meanwhile, if you want to resize the editing window within Lion full screen mode, the Keyboard Maestro macros which I use to control window size and position from the keyboard are [URL="http://web.me.com/robinfrancistrew/Site/RESIZE_OS_X_WINDOWS_some_Keyboard_Maestro_macros.html"]here[/URL].

I personally prefer to edit either in the central 1/3 of the screen, with the dark linen background to left and right, on in the right hand 2/3, with dark space for inspectors to the left.

An applescript for OS X 10.7 toggles in and out of full-screen view, using a narrowed editing window in full-screen view, with dark linen background to left and right.

[CODE]property pTitle : "Narrow 10.7 full screen mode for 003 - Toggle in and out"
property pVer : "0.01"

-- TOGGLES IN AND OUT OF oo3 FULL-SCREEN MODE
-- IN FULL-SCREEN MODE, NARROWS THE EDITING WINDOW, LEAVING A DARK LINEN BACKGROUND TO LEFT AND RIGHT

-- How wide a proportion of your screen should the 003 editing window be ? (adjust for comfort :-)
property prWidthPropn : 0.4

-- Only suitable for single screen setups
-- For dual screen setups, see the Keyboard Maestro macros at:
-- http://web.me.com/robinfrancistrew/Site/RESIZE_OS_X_WINDOWS_some_Keyboard_Maestro_macros.html
