Ken Dow reports that the current version of OmniOutliner can read and write OPML. This means, for example, with a little Radio script (or an AppleScript) you could use Omni as an Instant Outliner.

Progress on the Weblog Outliner. I have it working with Blogger, modulo an outage on As a fallback, I'm testing with a Manila site that emulates the Blogger API (note, they all do). Here's my latest post, and a screen shot of it being edited in the outliner.

How I edited the awards outline. "First, I opened up the outliner and created a file called awards.opml."

Paolo Marcucci has a Visual Basic script that converts a Word document to OPML. He says "Next step is importing a OPML file in Word, rebuilding the document format, and using Simon's function to pack it into a SOAP message." [Scripting News]

When you use a piece of software that isn't being updated, every time a new version of the OS comes out you wonder "Is this the one that won't run my favorite program?" MORE, which was last released ten years ago, back when dinosaurs roamed the earth, has become something of a Methuselah in this way. Takes a lickin, keeps on tickin. (Thanks to Lee Hinde for the screen shot.) [Scripting News]

Sometimes a picture makes the difference. When I started the MUOTD project I also made a resolution to organize my document work using Radio's Bookmarks menu. Now before I close a window I think "Will I want to edit this again?" or "Is this part of some project?" If the answer to either question is yes, I bookmark it, and then drag-drop it into the category it belongs in, or create a category for it. It's made a major difference in my writing work. Note that some of the documents haven't been released yet, that's good -- less shooting from the hip, and hopefully the projects will make more sense when they're rolled out.

Radio bug report. Open an outline stored locally. Bring it to the front. Choose Add Bookmark from the Bookmarks menu. Close the window. Choose the file in the menu. Error. The filename in the generated script is incorrect. On Windows the path delimiter is backslash, which must be escaped in string constants. (It was probably only tested on the Mac.)
