How to show an item in one mode in the other mode? [A: View menu or "Switch" button]
I'm new to OF, but I'm wondering if there is any shortcut to move from Context Mode to jump to a specific project in Planning Mode. I often have the need to move from reviewing my due or flagged items to then jump over to get an overview of a particular project.
I thought the find function would get me there, but I now realize that it simply filters the current list.
Any thoughts?

Happy to help! If you select an item in one mode, the View -> Show In <other mode> menu item does what you're looking for.

You can also control-click the toolbar and select "Customize Toolbar..." to drag a button that has the same function onto your windows. The one you want is labeled "Switch".

Fantastic! Exactly what I was looking for.

Also worth noting: If you double-click the “handle” of a task in context mode, OF will open a new window showing the task's project. Very handy to avoid losing your place in the context mode window.

Wonderful! Thanks Curt
