Feature Request: Importing OO numbering Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
The combination of OO and OG are one small step away from being the best information architecture and site map creation tool on the market.

Being able to create, tweak and number a hierarchy of information in OO and then automatically lay it out in OG absolutely rocks. However this awesomeness is useless to most designers because the numbering from OO doesn't import into OG.

Seems like a simple thing to fix since the number must be saved in the OO file that OG is importing... but what do I know!

I can see from this forum that lots of other people would like to see this feature also!

Not, apparently, how OO stores outlines :-)

It doesn't actually store the numbering, only a description of how it is configured. In effect, the file says something along the lines of:

"the following rows all are numbered in style LEGAL"
<row>
<row>
<row>
"the following rows all are numbered in style LETTER"
<row>
<row>

etc. and it assigns the row numbers from scratch.

It doesn't seem like an impossibly difficult task to teach OmniGraffle how to compute and insert the row numbering, though it should be optional! Use Help->Send Feedback to make your feature request in a place where it will be officially noted.

Are there any good resources/articles you know that show you how to do this?

TIA,

Ben
