Templates storage Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
This must be a dumb question but where does OmniOutline store the templates that I create? I created a template on my desktop and want it to be available from the 'New From Template' dropdown menu but I can't find out where they are kept so I can't drag my beautiful new template into it! Thanks
Hi Ron-

The templates should go in <home>/Library/Application Support/OmniOutliner 3/Templates

Thank you, I have done that but the drop down menu still doesn't seem to see it. Let me tell you more...:confused:
I have just switched to a new macmini from my old macmini. While using my old macmini I kept lots of files on a LaCie hard-disk. I have 'done' the simple switch macs and now seem to have 'omnioutliner 3' template folders on all three drives!!!
So I have
  1. My new macmini
  2. The old macmini working has a hard-drive with a firewire connection.
  3. The LaCie hard-drive. the question is 'where is my omnioutliner looking to find the template folder?!?' Is there any way of finding out?

This is what happens when you think you know what you are doing in upgrading your machine!:rolleyes:
It should be looking in your home folder. Most likely that resides on your new macmini. One thing you can do is go OmniOutliner -> Preferences -> Edit New Document Template, make some changes, then save it. This will then create a 'Default.oo3template' file in the directory where you want to place your template.

OK I did this and it edited my default template beautifully and placed it in the expected templates folder. It now fires up if I just click new. However, according to Finder there are 4 extra 'templates' that I have created in that folder. In the drop down menu there are two heading 'ronbailey' (me) and 'omnioutliner'. I was expecting to find my new templated under one or other of these headings in that drop down menu but they are not there.

That menu still has the edited version of the original default template and omnioutliners other templates eg Budget, Class Notes under a second heading of omnioutliner but without trace of my new templates. Should I expect to see these new templates when I use the drop down menu 'new from templates'?
Yes, you should see your template listed there. So you have it in the same directory that the default template file showed up in?

Does your template have the .oo3template extension on it?
