Drafts and Menubar Access

Working with Drafts

Drafts are a way to quickly put away a note or document you have been working on without having to set a file name and folder to save. In order to save as a draft, click the save draft button in the upper right corner of a document window and confirm. You can also save as a draft from the File menu in the menu bar.

Accessing Drafts

Open saved drafts from the Home window, menu bar fast access (as described below) or choose File ▸ Open Draft from the main menu.

Moving Drafts to another Place

To move draft documents out of the drafts storage and save them at another place, select File ▸ Open Draft from then main menu. Then simply drag the document you want to move out of the appearing window to any place in the file system. Or alternatively, open the outline from drafts and then click in the window’s title bar to reveal the macOS file dialogue. Then change its place next to the 'Where' field like any other document.

Menubar Access

OutlineEdit's menu bar fast access popover is the best way to quickly access drafts and recent documents. It is always visible in the menu bar and can also be revealed through the global shortcut cmd + alt + O. You can disable both menu item and shortcut in OutlineEdit's preferences.

The menu bar popover displays all saved drafts. From this view, you can directly saved drafts by right clicking and selecting Delete.

Tip: Click the OutlineEdit menu bar item while holding down the alt key, to instantly open a blank new document, from anywhere.
