Thanks for the DT 2.0 development status announcement today! Excellent!
Here is a renewed request regarding “Support for many common file formats” & “Documents are stored as-is, can be edited externally” (depending on how implemented):
• Requesting Mellel support - I feel the most flexible, cleanest and robust word processor and supports many language;
• Requesting OmniOutliner support.
Your serious consideration of these formats is most appreciated.
I have OmniOutliner Pro v3.6.5. I just ran a test and yes, exporting to HTML (dynamic) does give a searchable index.html page. Also the rendered page displays the row triangles which can be selected to open/display or close the indented sublevels (opened in DEVONthink Pro, DEVONagent, Safari, and Firefox).
Note, I only tested a single column outline with about four sublevels of indentation. I import everything into DTP (versus indexing).
A sample of the html generated table for a sublevel title “Documents Created” is:
The contents of the folder created by export (for my sample outline) are:
I’ve been using Mellel for a couple of years now and have just recently been looking at DTPro. After realizing that Mellel files are invisible to DTP, I scanned the Forums (both here and Mellel) and discovered that this issue has been discussed for quite a while, with DTP 2.0 occasionally identified as the occasion for Mellel integration. Since 2.0 has been promised this year, and since for me Mellel integration is a deal-breaker, I thought it worth asking whether there might be any news about Mellel integration in DTP 2.0.
DEVONthink 2 will depend on the existence of plugins provided by developers of proprietary file formats such as Mellel. As far as I can tell, there’s not yet a Quick Look plugin for Mellel, which would allow Leopard users to view Mellel documents via Quick Look.
