getting rid of check boxes Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Hi there,

I was wondering how I could modify the default template so that check boxes don't show up as default in new OO files.

Many thanks!
Open OmniOutliner. Open the OmniOutliner Preferences. Click on the General tab, if not already selected. Click the Edit New Document Template button. In the resulting template window, click on the Utilities button to open the drawer, then select Whole Document at the bottom left. Bring up the Document inspector (command-4), click on the Display tab (looks like a display with a checkbox in it), uncheck "Show status checkboxes". File->Save and you should be all done.

I generated these instructions from OmniOutliner Pro if you've got OmniOutliner and one or more of the details is different, hopefully you can connect the dots.
Excellent, that worked - thanks so much!!

Skitch used to work fairly well for graphic translations of these longish sequences, but it seems to have shed control over the width of arrows

I find it quicker to just go to the View Menu and toggle the option Hide/Show Status CheckBoxes.

You can also resize the arrows in Skitch via the Tools Menu - Tools Size
or the keyboard shortcut OPTION CMD 1 to OPTION CMD 5 (smallest to largest)

:-) Interesting not, as far as I can see, in my version of Skitch 2.

Do some features only activate after an Evernote sign-in ?
(Glui seems to be one alternative).

On OO3, yes not too hard to toggle checkboxes, but they're not something I use myself, so, as it happens, I do the share the preference for disabling them in the default template.

I just tried it when I was logged out of my account and the options are still there.

I'm using Skitch v2.0.5
