A couple of noob questions! :)
 
Hi all,

Firstly, thanks for taking time out to look.
I'm really liking OF and am planning to purchase soon. I've just a couple of niggles I wondered anyone can shed some light on!

First is, when I set a repeatable action (expenses, due 29th each month) when I'm in context mode it still shows up (i've set it to filter just active) - Is there a way I can stop it showing? I only need to see that on the 29th of each month etc...

second thing is, say I've got an action that is overdue and I change the date to a week later, it again still shows up in my context area?

Have I just got the concept completely wrong or have I got a setting wrong.

Thanks again :)
Chris

Put a start date on the repeating action with as much lead time as you want. The start date will be adjusted automatically for the repeat.

If you have an action with a due date that is part of a project or action group which also has a due date, OmniFocus uses the earliest date for determining if it is overdue. Could that be the issue here?

thanks again - you are a great help. (and testimony to the strong community here) I will look into it and see what happens!

I've just bought the iphone app and soon to get desktop - OF here I come! :)
