Not tested it yet. Sorry.  
Will check it, as soon as possible.
About OMR compliance: specification is here. But managing the nitty-gritty details can be painful, fortunately two tools are here to help.
One is MPDCenter, you can find a short tutorial describing OMR preparation here.
The other way is to use LDCad cleanup function (File -> Cleanup). Below the dialog box for your model. BTW, if you don't have a long MLCad practice, I suggest that you try LDCad, it's so much easier to use, especially for Technic models...
Your file is attached here, "omrized". One final note: there is no such thing as 6538c part, proper number is 59443 (and there is no 6538c.dat in LDraw library)

Have read it.

Cool Tool.

Clean up function is verygood. (easy to use)

I tried LDCad, but it is too cluttered for me because I always used MLCad from the beginning. (about 4 years ago)
Does LDCad support LPub Metacommands?
The part snaping is interesting.

I copied the 59443 to 6538c, because "BrickStock" great an error while making the Partlist and I had to change the part 59443 to 6538c hand by hand.

What do you mean exactly with support for LPub commands? There isn't really support for the workings of the metas, but it properly recognizes it as (LPub) meta commands.

Brickstock doesn't have a very good (if at all?) LDraw -> Bricklink part mapping. If you want to create a parts list from an LDraw file, I can recommend using Rebrickable. It has a very extensive mapping between LDraw and Bricklink and works pretty well in my experience Smile

...and anyway it's a bad idea to share a model that contains parts available only on your computer! You could possibly embed it in the mpd, but the best is to use the right part when it exists.

Will reinstall my parts library to remove these parts.
How can I embed parts in MLCaD?
For example, I have drawn pneumatic hoses to display them in LPub's PLI.

When I draw instructions, I use for example following Metacommands: !LPUB BUFEXCHG, !LPUB BART BEGIN IGN, !LPUB PART END; !LPUB CALLOUT BEGIN; !LPUB MULTI STEP BEGIN, !LPUB MULTISTEP DIVIDER,...
To get instruction they look like lego instruction respectively so they are easy to build and detailed.
