My today perspective is the same except under Context Filter I have 'active'. Can I ask what the advantages of changing it to 'remaining' are?

In the past I had a action list for every area (folder) but found it more trouble than it was worth. So I moved to one action list. But I quickly found that I prefer two, one for single tasks, and...

Hmm, I must be missing something. I have the latest sneaky peek release and the latest iphone app, but I don't have a 'completed' perspective that I can see.

Using due dates is this possible?

Garbage is collected on friday. I put it out on thursday. I enter 'take out garbage' for the next thursday, and set it to repeat every week. That works, however, once I check off that I took out the...

Thank you! Somehow I missed that suggestion. You're right, a dropped folder works perfectly. Thanks again.

I agree that 80.00 bucks for one program can seem unreasonable, and in all honesty I would have expected something around the 50.00 mark.

That said, I would have eventually paid the money. It...

Can I move the default clipping outline?

I love the clipping service for OO3. However, I hate that it's in application support. I'd like to move it to my omnioutliner folder in documents, where my other OO3 documents live.

Your mind might work that way. Mine certainly doesn't. A list of single actions that include 'change car oil' and 'get milk' is effectively not a project in any way, shape or form.
