Due column disappears in custom perspective
Hello there!
I have been using OmniFocus for 3 months now and I love it. However there is one problem: As the title suggests, in my custom perspective (that only shows tasks that have a "Due Date") the column in the "View Bar" always disappears when I switch perspectives. I've already tried making a snapshot of my perspective but it just does not work, the due column always disappears. So, everytime when I click on my perspective I also have to click on the little cog icon in the View Bar to show me my due dates for my tasks. That is quite annoying. Can somebody help me or is this a known problem/bug? I couldn't find anything via the search.
I would greatly appreciate it, if somebody could help me with that.

Check the perspective setting box for 'Restore: Layout' to save the exact view (columns, Sidebar, window size and location, etc.) when you take a snapshot of the perspective.

I would try making another snapshot. If that still doesn't work, copy down your desired settings (perhaps by making a screenshot of the perspectives window when you are viewing the Due perspective), select the Due perspective in the perspectives window, click on the gear menu at lower left, choose Reset Perspective to Default Settings, then reapply your changes and save.

Whoops, Greg's no doubt got the right idea, it didn't occur to me that you might not have that set!

Thank you Greg Jones! (Also thanks to whpalmer4!)
Restore Layout works perfectly! I would have never tried that little box in the settings! I'm feeling a little stupid because the solution was so easy :)
Thanks again for your help!
