OmniPlan for iOS
September 19, 2017
Requires iOS 11
OmniPlan 3.7 for iOS introduces support for Drag & Drop and integration with the iOS 11 Files app. This release also includes a handful of updates to OmniPlan’s interface and bug fixes.
OmniPlan 3.7 for iOS requires iOS 11.
- Drag and Drop Within OmniPlan — You can now drag tasks within or between OmniPlan projects. Tasks can be dragged out of the Gantt chart or Network diagram and dropped onto the Gantt chart (dropping isn’t currently supported in the Network Diagram). To drag multiple tasks at once, start dragging the first of your tasks, then tap the other tasks you’d like to include. When dropping multiple tasks at once they take the order in which they were added to the drag (this is also a quick way to reorder tasks in a project). To cancel a drag in progress, drag all the way to the edge of the screen.
- Drag and Drop Between Other Apps — On iPad you can drag tasks from OmniPlan to any app that supports dropping text or calendar events. Dragging calendar events, reminders, plain text, or OmniFocus tasks into OmniPlan creates new tasks.
- Drag and Drop in the Document Picker — The Document Picker supports Drag and Drop to make document management even easier. Drag files in to quickly import them, drag them out to copy them elsewhere, or pick up a group of documents and add them to a folder in the Document Browser to keep all your projects organized.
- Files App Integration & iCloud Support — OmniPlan 3 now supports file management and iCloud Drive sync via the iOS 11 Files app. Local OmniPlan project files now appear in the iOS 11 Files app, and OmniPlan projects saved to iCloud Drive will open in place for editing. At this point in time we do not recommend syncing OmniPlan files with third-party sync services other than iCloud, as many of these sync services do not support OmniPlan’s file package format.
- Icons — We’ve updated OmniPlan with bolder, more colorful icons.
- Microsoft Project Import — OmniPlan no longer performs a destructive import of Microsoft Project files. The original .mpp Microsoft Project file is now left in its original location, and the imported OmniPlan .oplx project file is copied into OmniPlan’s Local Documents. (In previous versions of OmniPlan, the imported .oplx file overwrote the original .mpp file.)
- Share Menu — It is no longer possible to share multiple files at a time.
- View Type — It is now possible to switch between the Gantt and Network views via an option in the View popover (this allows OmniPlan to hide the view type toolbar button when the toolbar is too crowded).
- Document Browser — Pulling down in the document browser no longer results in unnecessary blank space.
- Server Repositories — The alert presented when deleting a file from a server repository is now spelled correctly, and provides the option to cancel.
- Task Inspector — Restored the “i” buttons for inspecting task assignments and dependent tasks.
