But: it is not nearly as easy to adjust your task outline on the iPhone vs. on the Mac. You might want to consider downloading the mac trial at least.

I’m sure it’s a lot faster on more recent phones, but I use omnifocus with a pretty substantial database on an iPhone 4.

Blocking one task or another task only works as part of an outline in a single project in OF. The options that I can think of are making project 1 and project 2 a single project; or making yourself a...

Could OF be filtering by project? I would guess that in project view it filters projects based on whether they have due soon or flagged items. Does that seem to be the case? You might want to try...

Another method might be to write a script that adds a task set to be due on the last day of the current month and then set that script to be run automatically by iCal every month.

I think that forgetting about actions once they are filed away in a project is a feature, not a bug. You have to be careful with it (e.g. as people point out, try to do your reviews), but I think...
