A simple button request
 
Could you add a simple button that would open address book and Ical as an optional toolbar item. I am constantly going between these programs in using OF and it sure would make life easier.

I know...I know...it's all about me...lol

Thanks for your consideration....

:)

Use [URL="http://forums.omnigroup.com/showthread.php?t=3734"]Help --> Send Feedback[/URL] to submit your feature request. But I wonder why you wouldn't just use the Dock if you aren't averse to using the mouse to change apps.

Open up the Script Editor application and paste in the following:

[code]
tell application "Address Book"
activate
end tell
[/code]

Save it in your Library/Scripts/Applications/OmniFocus folder (may have to create the OmniFocus folder in Library/Scripts/Applications if you haven't previously installed any Applescripts for OmniFocus). Now go to OmniFocus, select View->Customize Toolbar and drag the icon for Script: Address Book (or whatever you chose to call it) to the desired spot on the toolbar. Now you have your very own button to fire up the Address Book and bring it forward. Building a similar button for iCal is left as an exercise for the reader, as is customizing the toolbar icon.

You could also add scripts like the following to the toolbar:
tell application "iCal"
activate
tell (first window whose name is "iCal")
set visible to true
end tell
end tell

and:

tell application "Address Book"
activate
tell first window
set visible to true
end tell
end tell

Couldn't you achieve this today with a pair of one-line AppleScripts? Put them in ~/Library/Scripts/Applications/OmniFocus/ and then add them to your OmniFocus toolbar.
