The context view organizes things into where they need to be done in tidy lists, and the planning outline is equally malleable. That gives us the freedom to organize our sidebar in whatever way we...

Yeah, I think the return key functionality feels inconsistent. Return on a Project creates a new task in that project, return on any folder makes a top level project. I'm guessing that this isn't...

I don't necessarily care for different colors for different "types" of actions (single/next/parallel), but I do like the idea of color coding by context. I sometimes like to work from iCal on...

I hired a new assistant recently, and one of her organizational tips is to assign a due date for everything. For me it works in the opposite way it works for Curt; that due date is immutable and is...

I think, in theory, a GTD app could do hard landscape, it's just that none of them (that I know of) do. Of course, it would have to have a calendar, wouldn't it be nice to have a single app that you...

Yeah, deleting the extra calendars and syncing fixed this problem when I had it. Just back up first as OF's predecessor used to blow up data in this situation.

Maybe we should just name things in OF in ways they might make sense in plain English. Like GTD's definitions.

You can hot-key 'em with Quicksilver using the Menu Item action (I do shift-command+1-9), but I think you have to recreate the Triggers every time you upgrade :(

Single Actions in every folder?

Using the GTD verbiage, I have a "20,000 feet" structure of Folders for my Planning view. It's perfect for me, and it seems like OF was meant to work this way, but in addition to my projects about...

Thanks, that's what I meant.

Great suggestion, I'm definitely going to turn off the colors, since "Next" doesn't mean much to me. Again, I'm not arguing to remove the utility of a filter like the...
