Send to Outline from Safari - improvement request

N. Feb 25, 2015 01:44PM PST


First I want to say I was skeptical about your app at first. I bought it, didn't like it, got a refund, then decided to purchase it again this week while it was on sale. I am definitely keeping it this time.

Next, I have a suggestion request. While browsing Math.StackExchange on my iPad, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that I can send webpages from Safari to Outline. Unfortunately, once in outline, it was converted to text. This feature, though I imagine helpful for some, is completely useless to anyone studying higher math. Without the LaTeX (math type), the printout was useless in Outline. I ended up taking screenshots, cropping and importing those into outline as images instead.

It would be lovely if Outline had an option to send a webpage to the app as some sort of image that retains whatever website formatting from Safari.

Thank you!

This is the page I was trying to get into outline, as a pdf or image, basically, some format that preserves the LaTeX and I can write over with a pen in Outline. If you all can get it to print to outline in a way that preserves all the formatting, please let me know.

I want to echo this request. Outline is not useful to me unless I can use it for clipping research from the web, especially from scholarly publications. The Onenote web clipper works exactly right. When this is available I will try outline again.

Thank you
