Cannot edit an Outline document

Main Mac May 30, 2018 12:03PM PDT

I started playing with Outline yesterday, created a new Outline document on my computer (no sync), with a couple pages. When I launch Outline today it's not automatically there, so I double-click on the "Open Notebook.outtoc" file, and it opens. However it appears to be in a read-only formate, no matter what I can't edit the pages in any way. I can create a new page, which I seem to be able to edit.

Any ideas?

Hello,
thanks for letting us know about this.

It sounds very strange and I must say, we haven't encounter such issues before.

There are a few questions from our team:

1. Do you use one and the same user account on your Mac?
2. What is the Mac OS version involved?
3. What directory you have used to save your notebook?

Your answers might help us to identify the issue and provide a corresponding solution.

Thank you!
