I want to focus on multiple contexts
I have just done a major sweep of my omnifocus document and have everything nicely grouped into projects and contexts.

I would like to make a perspective for when I'm sat at my computer in the hotel room in the morning.
I imagined that I'd be able to do this by selecting all of the contexts relevant in this situation, ie: @online, @email, @phone, @UKofficeHours.

I had expected I could just press the Focus button and then save a perspective, as I can in the projects view when I select multiple projects and then focus on only them.

Focus is greyed out in the contexts view though.
I've paused all my @home contexts, but I'd like to *not* see my active stuff that I still use whilst travelling (@gig, @shopping etc) in this perspective.

Any ninjas know how I can set this up?
Apologies if this is RTFM-basic....

It looks like focus only works on projects, not on contexts.

Nonetheless, it's easy to only show stuff in contexts you care about.

Just multi-select them in the left pane (click first context, then command-click the rest). Once you have them selected that's all you will see on the right, and save it as a perspective.

You'll still see the other contexts at left, but you won't see any items that are contained within them.

Ah yes, that'll do it!

Might still pop "focus for contexts" in as a feature request.
