OmniOutliner for iPad 1.5.2 with OmniPresence support now available! Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
OmniOutliner for iPad v1.5 was a major update that added automatic document syncing through OmniPresence. Version 1.5.2 is a minor update that adds level styles, style propagation, and a preference for audio recording quality.

New Features
  • Level styles have been added and are located under the Styles tab of the tools popover. These allow you to apply styles to all rows of the same level at once. Round tripping files with OmniOutliner 3 on the Mac will preserve the style configuration much better now.
  • There are now two setting options accessible through the gear menu of the document picker. They control the quality of the audio recording and whether locally applied styles to a row should be carried over to new rows created from it.

  • Named styles will no longer inherit child or next-peer styles from any inherited named style.
  • Row numbering applied locally to a row will always be applied to new rows created from it. This also applies to gutter color and handle visibility but those are not shown on the iPad.

Bug Fixes
  • Fixed a bug that could cause certain date formats to not be read in correctly. This did not corrupt any data, but could potentially cause dates to display differently than intended.

OmniOutliner for iPad v1.5.1 is a minor update improving the user experience of the document browser and OmniPresence.

New Features
  • In the unfortunate circumstance that OmniOutliner for iPad crashes, on the next launch there will now be a prompt with the option to email us the crash report so that we may assist you however possible and hopefully fix the crash.

  • Audio is now captured compressed using AAC encoding. This allows for significantly longer recordings at a fraction of the size. Recording length is limited to 10 hours per recording due to memory requirements.
  • Users who are running OmniPresence on a server with a self-signed certificate will again be prompted upon the first run of OmniOutliner for iPad 1.5.1 as it connects to the server due to a change in certificate handling.
  • WebDAV accounts now have a 3-way control switch in their configuration to use the server for OmniPresence, import/export, or both. This can be changed at any time through Cloud Setup.
  • Minor changes to the OmniPresence configuration process have been made to improve the experience.
  • The import feature has been integrated into the browse menu of the document browser, accessed by tapping on the title in the top toolbar.
  • The browse menu is now split into three sections when applicable—local documents and trash, OmniPresence folders, and import locations.
  • Sorting controls have been moved to a new bottom toolbar of the document browser.
  • The option to restore sample documents has been moved to the gear menu.
  • Updates have been made to the trash to properly separate it from other containers.
  • Localizations have been updated to account for previous changes.

Bug Fixes
  • Removed the touch highlight on the file name while editing a document.
  • The OmniPresence icon should no longer overlap the Undo button in any situation.


OmniOutliner for iPad v1.5 is a major update that adds automatic document syncing through OmniPresence. (This release requires iOS 6.)


OmniPresence is designed to work well with any Mac app which supports OS X’s Auto Save and Versions. Using the same underlying document coordination as Versions, OmniPresence lets your app know when a document has been changed on another device, and double-checks to make sure it always syncs a current and complete copy of any documents currently being edited. OmniPresence can’t prevent conflicting edits from multiple devices—but when that happens it automatically saves both versions of conflicting edits so that no edits are lost.

OmniPresence is also designed to support document syncing within teams. By creating a shared sync account for your team, you can make sure that everyone on your team always has the latest copy of every document available on all their devices.

We believe in building solutions that will stand the test of time, and we believe that your data should be yours to control—whether you’re syncing your personal files or your company’s confidential information. So rather than use a proprietary syncing service which might not be available in five or ten years, OmniPresence is built on top of open web server technologies. This means you can sync documents using your own web server, such as the Apache server built into Mountain Lion Server. (We’ve posted instructions for setting up WebDAV file sharing on Mountain Lion Server on our support pages.)

We know that some customers would rather not have to set up their own service, so we’re currently scaling up our Omni Sync Server to support OmniPresence. We’re not quite sure how much additional traffic to expect from customers using OmniPresence, so we’re not opening the floodgates to all our customers just yet—but we are trying to make OmniPresence available to all accounts as quickly as possible. (Anyone who has checked the “I am brave” box at should already have access, and anyone else who checks that box will be given priority access.)


New Features
  • Support for syncing your documents between devices is now available through OmniPresence. View the help documentation for more information on how to use it.
  • When renaming files through the toolbar, the whole width of the toolbar is made available for the file name.

Bug Fixes
  • Plain text, Rich Text Format, OPML, and OmniOutliner Template files can all now be used with the share button options.
  • Files round tripped between OmniOutliner 3 and OmniOutliner for iPad will no longer lose the expansion state of attachments.

We love hearing from you! You can reach us by tapping Contact Omni in the gear menu (found in the document browser), sending email to, tweeting to @OmniOutliner, or calling 1-800-315-OMNI or +1 206-523-4152.
