Copy text to Word/Pages

Paul Mar 28, 2017 09:38AM PDT

I have noticed a major issue with copying in Outline formatted text to Word or Pages.

The formatting e.g. bullets is not recognised resulting in a rather useless format if parts of the notes are needed.

I would be really nice when you fixed this.

Best wishes

Hi Paul,

Thanks for reaching out!

This bug is fixed in new 3.18 version.
It's already available for Standalone and App Store Mac versions.

Could you please update your app and try pasting the text from Outline again?

I'm still having a significant problem copying/pasting from Outline into other apps (Outlook, Word, Notes, Pages ), and vice versa

The formatting of fonts, bulleted lists, tables, etc. are poorly rendered, requiring a lot of manual work to reformat in order to add content from a note to an email, a word document, etc. I am running v.3.19.2

Hi Brian,

We apologise for this situation!

Apparently we won't be able to finish our work with text format in nearest future.
So I can only suggest you to use OneNote when you need to import / export notes with formatting preserved.
- Start new OneDrive notebook in your account at;
- Open this notebook in Outline with "+" at the top of notebooks pane > Open from OneDrive;
- Copy-paste the notes you want to export to this OneDrive notebook;
- Open this notebook in OneNote for Mac and move the notes in any other app.

Please write to me if there are any difficulties with opening OneDrive notebook.
I will help!
