Outline Keyboard Delay v.3.11 (39.110.601) on Sierra OS v.10.12

Rich Kelly Oct 03, 2016 07:19AM PDT

Thank you for your time. Is the keyboard delay going to be fixed ? I want to purchase the software, but the keyboard delay means Outline won't keep up with my typing speed. I often transcribe phone calls real time and slow response of keypress along with gaps in my typing due to keyboard buffer overload are a deal breaker.

Hi Rich,

We apologise for this situation!

Could you please try turning off the Spelling Check?
It is in Outline > Preferences > Edit > Check Spelling.

And I can also suggest it can be connected to the page where you typing.
Could you please try creating new notebook, new section and new page and type something there?
Is it the same behaviour?

And we've now prepared some typing improvements for Sierra but they will be available in 3.12 version in couple of weeks.

I have the same problem - huge delay when typing (sometimes). It happens on any Notepad and I have already disabled all the checkboxes in Edit configuration tab.

It seems that the whole Outline app stops responding when the letters are gradually appearing on the screen - at that time it is not even possible to open any menu item (using mouse).

I have only 5 days left of my trial, but this makes Outline unusable for me :-/

- Outline 3.10.1
- Sierra 10.12

Hi Ondrej,

We apologise for this inconvenience!

Did you try typing only in the notebooks you already have?
Could you please create a new local notebooks to test typing there?

We have already finished our work with some new mechanisms that would speed up the typing on Mac.
However it only will be available in 3.12 version.

Hi Alena,

yes it happens also with brand new local Notebook.

Is v3.12 available for test?

Not yet, we're still working on it.

I can suggest opening the trial period for you again after we release 3.12 so you could test typing with the new version.
What do you think?
