  • A picture named drum.gifLittle Outliner v0.42 is up.
  • The main new feature in this release is the ability to import outlines from Workflowy, a popular browser-based outliner.
  • It would be simpler if they supported OPML import and export, as our outliners do, but you take what you get. The users want to go back and forth, so let's make it as easy as possible.
  • Here's how you do it.
  • 1. In Workflowy, get the section of the outline that you want to export on screen.
  • 2. Hover with the mouse just to the left of the main headline and nudge the mouse down to reveal the full menu, and click on the Export command. (Screen shot.)
  • 3. A dialog appears containing the exported text. Be sure to click on the Plain text option. (Screen shot.)
  • 4. Copy all the text, then go to Little Outliner. Position the cursor where you want the text to go, and Paste. (Screen shot.)
