"Always show all notes" option?

I was curious if there's a way to make notes visible, by default, for all actions.

I'm aware that you can manually turn them on for selected actions, but I'd like to avoid this extra step.

Edit global text parameters?

Is there a way to alter text parameters for all text in a document, present or to-be-added? Specifically, I'd like "wrap to shape" to default to "off" in all text objects without having to uncheck...

This is a big issue with me, as I move back and forth frequently between my two machines. I don't want to have to buy a second copy! Is there any anticipated solution for 1.1?

Collapsing nodes (newbie question)

I'm evaluating OmniGraffle as a prospective mindmapping tool. Most mindmapping applications let the user collapse any node in the graph just by clicking it or taking some other simple action, thus...

Is there any way that the "duration" data type (in an appropriately-typed column) can be used to measure minutes and seconds?

Poor-man's OF network sync

I stumbled upon a psuedo-technique of sharing OmniFocus over a network which I found handy, and thought I'd post here.

Possible to completely hide inactive projects?

I think I asked this way back during the Sneaky Peak/Beta days, but figured it's worth raising again.

Is it possible, when looking at a filtered view, to hide the titles of projects with no...
