I don't see any "group by context" option, I think that's because they are already grouped by context but there is now context column between the task and Project columns.

I haven't seen those you mention Spiral, but the best I've seen is:

Notetaker: has nice presentation, is inexpensive ($25), and can make websites out of notes.

Brian, I think I see what you mean. I've done it now (wasn't that painful!) and it's much tidier with far less sections and I found I don't need Project folders for each business, just regular...

Projects or Contexts? It's confusing

I'm new to the whole GTD concept (I have the book currently unread, I'm too busy!). I get "projects" and "contexts" mixed up and in OmniFocus it would really help a beginner if it shows (in Planning...
