OmniPlan html export no longer dynamic?
 
I tried out the demo of OP v1 before and was able to export to html with a dynamic gantt chart (i.e., clickable collapse and expands triangles). I'm now using the demo of v2 and the html export doesn't anymore have a dynamice gantt chart.

Is it just me or did OG remove this feature?

Well, when I export with 1.7, I don't even get triangles, unlike in 2.1! In both cases, I'm exporting the HTML Full Report format, opening in a web browser (tried both OmniWeb and Chrome), clicking on the Gantt Chart icon in the detailed reports section. Neither appears to give me collapsible groups.

I'm not sure if the demo I used was pre-1.7 but the gantt chart on the html report definitely had collapsing/expanding triangles.

I checked several versions: 1.1.2, 1.5, 1.6.4, and 1.7. Not one provides a collapsible Gantt chart. I don't believe they could, because they all use a simple HTML file that references .jpg files containing the rendition of the Gantt chart. You would have to construct .jpg files showing the Gantt chart in every possible configuration, which becomes impractical for a project of appreciable complexity. There's also no reference to such a feature in the manual or the release notes. You can export just the outline as an OmniOutliner file, and the result will be collapsible (in OmniOutliner, or exported as dynamic HTML from OmniOutliner) but it will not have a Gantt chart.
