Then you are currently filtering on active contexts. In the view bar, switch it to all, and you will see the culprit.

Hmm. I have the most recent build. Quick Entry has, I thought, always popped up on the current space. It's after I press enter that I'm shunted to OmniFocus' space.

This is a minor quibble, but when I am working away on something (in its space) and use quickentry, it boots...

"Cleanup" clears inbox unintentionally

I like keeping tasks in my inbox, even when they have automatically set contexts (from Mail) or I gave them contexts (from quick entry), until I'm explicitly processing the Inbox. This is so I can...

I avoid duplicates by having @Email context and Home/Work folders. Is this what you are doing? I have an @Office and @Home context as well.

This is *extremely* important. I can learn to love the numbers, but not if all my overdue home items are cluttering my day at work and vice versa. I *hate* that.

Pressing clean-up to remove completed actions is fine, but it is NOT FINE that this is also cleaning up the inbox. I have items sitting in the inbox with context set (in particular, anything that got...

Return to inbox

Huzzah! Removing the project and context bumps actions back to the inbox!

I'm thinking that my ideal behaviour would be if anything without a context was in the inbox, but I can work with this.

At the same level? That means not in a context list and with no handy-dandy checkbox to mark it complete and clear it from view. How would you ever know to do it?
