Hi Guys,

Is anyone here using OF on the iPad Mini 2 (Retina)?

Is it the same as on a full size iPad but squished down? Any issues with reading the fonts etc?

I'm just looking at purchasing...

I just found my answer, oops.

For anyone who needs to know, just drag the action into a folder or straight to the library and it will automatically become an action.

I was wondering under what circumstances people are using projects and actions, and under what circumstances people find it better to use Actions and sub-actions/nested actions?

Obviously when you...

There are already a number of web based apps that support GTD much more completely than OF does, they just don't look as nice.

Hi Fred,
That's exactly what I mean. There are MUCH better tools than OF for managing GTD, not a little bit better, but light years ahead. The problem is that none (of the 50+ that I have tested)...

Hi Chris,

I am basically going to use a separate system for 20,000ft+ management. I have looked at managing them as 'projects' but I don't think this is robust enough. I have been using GTD for a...

Perhaps in the next update they will fix it.

In your case it seems fairly simple at first glance.

You should delete all the standard contexts and make:
