Yes, me too - in fact, I have a task in OmniFocus that triggers every three months, reminding me to check on OminOutliner 4!
 
So, uh, 2012 has got to be the year, right? Dare we say, first half of 2012?
 
I'm using the standard version of OmniOutliner. How can I add the AppleScript below to OmniOutliner? I've searched the manual and couldn't find that information.

Thanks,
Howard

on run
	ToggleSize(pScreenSize, false)
end run

-- Optionally apply a variant screen size directly through LaunchBar
on handle_string(strSize)
	try
		set lngSize to strSize as integer
	on error
		return
	end try
	
	ToggleSize(lngSize, true)
end handle_string

on ToggleSize(lngSize, blnScreen)
	tell application id "OOut"
		if (count of documents) < 1 then return
		tell style of front document
			
			-- temporarily increase the font size in screen mode
			tell attribute "font-size"
				if blnScreen then
					set pScreenSize to lngSize
					set value to pScreenSize
				else
					set blnScreen to (value is pPrintSize)
					if blnScreen then
						set value to pScreenSize
					else
						set value to pPrintSize
					end if
				end if
			end tell
			
			-- temporarily lower the the background contrast in screen mode
			tell attribute "text-background-color"
				if blnScreen then
					set value to pBackColor
				else
					set value to default value
				end if
			end tell
		end tell
	end tell
end ToggleSize
 
See this post and substitute OmniOutliner wherever you see OmniFocus:

I too am seriously frustrated with the delays in getting OO4, as some of the features they've suggested would be in it are things I could really use.

I'm wondering if the delay has to do with the fact that the outlining engine for OO is also at the foundation of other OmniGroup apps, such as OmniFocus and OmniPlan. So it's not just a question of getting a new OmniOutliner out the door ... every change they make, every feature they add also has to work in their other apps. If that's the case, the complexity involved is a lot greater than simply creating OO4.

It's the only thing I can think of to explain the fact that Omni has been talking about OO4 for (I think) four years now, and we still don't have it. If it were easy, or even moderately difficult, it'd be out by now.

Haha, me too. It's seriously overdue. The iPad app really doesn't do much without a proper desktop sync. Hoping OmniGroup goes iCloud++ in OO4.

Oh my, an update I haven't read.

I know it has been a long wait for OmniOutliner 4, but at least the upgrade is free for anyone who purchased OmniOutliner 3 after May 13, 2011.

We typically don't pre-announce anything about pricing (because we don't decide on it until we know what we've built!), but I will say that anyone purchasing OmniOutliner 3 at this point will receive a free upgrade to OmniOutliner 4 (whether they purchase through our online store or the App Store).

Another 5-6 months since my last check in. Second half of 2012?
 
OmniOutliner 4? Does the 4 stand for 2014?
