Dear Philipp,

Sorry for the delay.

The outliner indeed does not show nodes which are hidden in the author page.
I will file an improvement request to make this an optional feature (an 
additional button on the outliner's toolbar to control this for example).
Indeed Oxygen does not yet obey the "width" property but we already have 
a plan to obey it.
Unfortunately for the moment there is no workaround to give you so that 
what you want can be achieved.
