Hey! Nice effort.
I have never fully figured out how to integrate it in my workflow.

This might also be due to my on-again, off-again use of OmniFocus itself, however. As an affordable adjunct to...

Column Grouping?

Sometimes 2 or 3 columns belong together.
They may only be useful together, but get in the way at other times.

How about collapsing them at will via a tiny tab button?

Color Grouping them...

I mostly agree.

I had a long involved answer:
My log-in got dropped when I went to "preview" before I finished it & lost it all.

I don't feel like recreating it.

More than what? Tuning the UI is more than colors.
If there's a clear advantage to a particular scheme, that's great.

I think there are a lot of good things to come from a beta test. People shouldn't have a hissy fit over no immediate release of the next cut of OmniFocus.

Rob,

I'm not writing a road map or redesigning the interface with presentations.

Do we need new words?

A whole lot of fuss over one word.

"Start" has a foreboding aura. Start dates in the future Ė suck if its a delay.
But START is a direct word & describes a discrete intention.
