Why So Slow??
 
I love OmniFocus but the syncing is SOOOOO slow when using WebDav or Omni's server.

Other apps (I know, an annoying phrase) sync in a matter of a couple of seconds.

I have no more than 30 items total including trash. Is there anything that can speed up the syncing?

How many systems do you have synching? If you have a client that hasn't bee synched in a while, things will slow to a crawl.

Go to preferences on an iOS device and see how many ZIP files it notes. If the number is in the hundreds, things will get VERY SLOW.

You can also go to the sync pane in the Mac version and see the most recent sync date of each client. If there's an old, stale one in the list, remove it and re-sync all clients and after an hour or so everything should speed up.

If you want to see if compacting the database is enough to clean up your slow sync, you don't have to wait an hour if you have all of your devices handy.

Sync your Mac.
Sync all of the other clients.
Back on the Mac, bring up OmniFocus preferences, sync pane, client display. Select each of the clients and click the unregister button.
Sync the Mac again.
Sync your other clients. When you sync the other clients, you may be asked if you want to keep the device or the sync database. Choose the sync database.
