Not at all. I said that "to use OF effectively, you must at least know the basics of GTD."

The easiest way to learn the basics is to read the book, but there are other ways.

I'm not sure what you mean by managing costs, but in iCal, you can set a repeating event (Pay $50 to ___) that ends after a certain date.

I don't think there's a way to add a stop date to repeating actions, so you'll have to stop the action manually.

Paland,

I don't understand what you mean by "master project" and "linking" in option 1.

How to create a checklist for Daily Routines

Ken,

I did need to re-add them to the toolbar after the upgrade, but that wasn't what I meant by not syncing. What made me notice the issue is that I changed the name of one of my pre-1.7...
