OmniOutliner is feature-rich enough to see a novel from start to finish. You’ll have more flexibility by putting sentences or paragraphs in easily referenceable nodes; way more powerful than a typical word processor.

“There's no better tool for that sort of thinking/creative process than OmniOutliner. Fantastic keyboard support, too.”


Use OmniOutliner to add structure to your information — something beneficial to more than just outlines. Expand or collapse what you need, when you need it, and zoom in or focus to move everything else out of the way. Reference material there if you need it, but not in your face.

“OmniOutliner is one of my favourite and most frequently used productivity apps for Mac and iOS. It allows me to transform my random, unstructured ideas into outlines that are as attractive as they are useful.”


Perfect for meetings, classes, or keying in need-to-know terms during a sailing lesson. OmniOutliner gets completely out of the way so you can type, return, and type some more. Start new documents with a template to keep everything uniform and expeditious. You’ll find yourself starting all future work here.

“I never cease to be amazed at all the roles OmniOutliner fills for me. I use it to make budgets, manage complex projects, and track billing and expenses, and more. All that, plus it's a really great basic outliner too.”


Edit all of your outlines on any Mac, iPad, or iPhone using OmniPresence. It’s free, reliable, and open. Your files are always intact and available—they’ll even be waiting for you with Background App Refresh in iOS.

What’s in Pro

Upgrading to OmniOutliner Pro for Mac adds a whole lot of choice for designing, working with, and sharing your document. Add automation, reference links, and oodles of styling and formatting.

Workflow Automation with AppleScript

Workflow Automation with AppleScript

Combine the AppleScript language with OmniOutliner’s wonderfully documented library for automation of all sorts.

Microsoft Word Export

Microsoft Word Export

Word® is a necessity for some, and you’ll be able to share with those that are required to use it! Export your document or basic outline to Word® with a few extra options, like plain text or Word-specific indentation.

Cross-Reference with Row Linking

Cross-Reference with Row Linking

Copy and paste links to other places within your current document for quick callbacks. Easy and useful.

Advanced Styling & Formatting

Advanced Styling & Formatting

Change everything you’d ever want to on a row, word, character, or line. Page breaks, headers, and background colors, too. Even granular controls for indentation. Then, save it for later with a template.

Truncated Row Text

Truncated Row Text

Make it easier to focus on your current point by collapsing all the other rows in your document. Your current row is fully expanded, then tucks back into place with other rows once you move on.

Column Controls

Column Controls

Not interested in seeing or sharing Column X and Y? Just hide ‘em. Bring them back only when you need to.
