It’s incredibly easy to create a great looking checklist in Outlinely.

Type “- [ ]”, then space to create a checkbox.

Type “- [x]”, then space to create a checked checkbox.

Click the checkbox to mark the item as completed.


If you do not want the the text "- [ ]" to be transformed into checkboxes automatically, you can turn off the option "Expand - [ ], -[x] into Checkbox" in Preferences panel.

You can also add a checkbox by:

  • Use keyboard shortcut ⇧⌘C to insert a checkbox.
  • From menu select Outline > Add Checkbox.
