Microsoft Office applications content compatibility

Ovidiu Nov 13, 2017 04:59AM PST


I am issues when pasting content from Excel in Outline. The table is not kept and everything is pasted as Text, in a non understandable form, compared to the excel - no tabs or spacing is kept.
The same is when copying tables from an Outlook email.

Overall it seems that copying and pasting content from and to Microsoft Applications is very buggy and the format is rarely being kept.

Is there any plan to improve this?
Thank you!

thanks for contacting us.

The main note taking app that is supported by Outline is MS OneNote.

Excel and Outlook are not officially supported.

I have noted your request to our wish list. We will consider these improvements.

Thank you!

This is not a Microsoft problem. Outline does not understand tables from Number or Pages either. I am afraid Outline does not understand tables from anything else. If you use OneNote why would you use Outline, too and try to cut and pastes tables between them?
