A week or two ago I spent about 10 minutes experimenting with OO styles. It’s worth learning how they work.

Styles seemed buggy at first, but that was due to assumptions I made that were wrong.

OmniOutliner Styles are powerful, but very clumsy and a little buggy. I use a simple but custom style for my notes with main headings bolded but everything in the same font and size, but for no reason whatsoever I periodically find some child nodes are formatted in italics and I have to open up the Inspector to delete unwanted style attributes.

That said, I really appreciate being able to easily customize my fonts, sizes and backgrounds. I’m very sensitive to the fonts used by apps and hate being stuck with something (or a limited number of options) chosen by a developer.

Thanks to all for suggestions,
I got devonthink and I like it (PDF web capture is great!)
I already have Scrivener
regarding outliners, I think I will go back to use dynalist (omni outliner is costly)
curio looks complex and I am confused with its yearly subscription model
I think I will get vellum and tinderbox later

if you know/use a Mac app in any category (mainly productivity) and you find it indispensable/like it please recommend

Thank you @satis for the reminder of UpNote. I have been searching for an app that would act as a front end to Apple’s Notes app. UpNote does a nice job with features that make notetaking a better experience than Apple Notes. I tried UpNote when it was first released and I am glad that the developers have made it into the great app it is. By the way, I saw that the app was available on the macOS app store for a discounted price for a limited time. There was no hesitation for me in pushing the “pay”  button. :)  Cheers! :)
