Can't save custom column choices
In my Projects perspective, I have chosen to show two columns (other than the defaults of Name, Flag, etc.): Context and Due Date.

In the Sidebar, I've selected Library, and I can see every Project in this Perspective.

But sometimes I want to click on one particular project and print that out without the Context and Due Date columns. So I saved this as a New Perspective, and put the icon for it on my toolbar. It's basically the Project view without those two columns. When I click on this icon, I get a view of just the one Project, without the additional columns.

But when I then click on the Projects icon, I get the entire Projects view without Context and Due Date columns - which I WANT to see when I show all the Projects.

Is there a way I can save these two Perspectives? All my Projects - in Projects view - with those two columns ... and just this one Project in Projects view, without those two columns.

Thanks in advance,

Rogbar, if I'm understanding your request correctly, this is possible.

For the second perspective, you want to select the Project(s) in the sidebar, then select View -> Focus on -> <projects you have selected>.

Then, just make sure the "Restore: Focus" box is checked in the Perspective window for that perspective.

Does that do what you're looking for?

That did it - I had to use "Restore Focus" on the "All Projects" perspective too, but now it works fine. Thanks much.
