Thanks for letting me know how to assign a project in iCal. That is very helpful. Is there a way to tell OF to automatically sync with iCal, or can it only be done manually?

does this happen to you? I create a todo in iCal. I then sync it to OF. Then the todo in iCal goes away until I sync from OF again.

Manually only I'm afraid, but I'm going to have a go at writing a script that can run on a schedule to do it. Don't hold your breath though as I've never written a script in my life before! Doing an online course right now!

Hmm no, I've never seen that, though I have seen some other odd things from time to time. I'd check your settings for showing todos in iCal, though I don't know why anything should change just because you synced it.

No problem. I don't know if it'll work to create a new project, or if it only works if the project already exists in OF. If you get a chance to try, let me know the outcome please.

The script would be

[CODE]
tell application "OmniFocus"
ical_synchronize
end tell
[/CODE]

except there's a bug right now which causes this to call the main synchronize instead. :(

Once we fix that bug, you could maybe use the iCal alarm trick [URL="http://www.xvsxp.com/power_user/schedule_tasks.php"]here[/URL] or something similar to handle the scheduling aspect.

please let us know when the bug is fixed. Thanks.

I tried this script, but it doesn't seem to do anything at all.

Lizard 2008-08-28 11:50 AM

Oh right. You have to tell it what document to sync:

[CODE]
tell front document of application "OmniFocus"
ical_synchronize
end tell
[/CODE]

rllewis@mac.com 2008-08-28 04:23 PM

apple script editor changes "ical_synchronize" to "synchronize." is that the bug you were talking about?
