Timescales and future plans for OF?

I think I'm in the unfortunate...

I've been trying this today with no luck yet. OO refuses to load my OPML. It'd be nice to be able to do that on the iPad itself - use CarbonFin as the inbox, then once everything's fleshed out,...

Well, if there's one thing I've learnt on this forum, it's that people have a wide range of expectations and very different perceptions of speed :)

Yup - CarbonFin outliner is pretty damn good. It's simple, fast, intuitive... but it's a much simpler animal than OmniFocus, and doesn't fulfil the needs of those of us trying to do things the GTD...

Mmm... seconded. I'd find this handy too, and the space to the right of the checkboxes would be great for this.



Yup, but that's three taps per item, rather than a single tap; three times the...

I don't think there is a way yet, I'm afraid. Even with a Mac it's not straightforward.

With difficulty. No, no, no, sorry, sorry, sorry - just being facetious.

I always find it a bit freaky that you can have waaaaay more zip files than you have actions, but then I suppose it's all kinda transaction-based.

Why yes, yes it does, iPad version at least. Tap any item and its inspector pop-up has a little button for emailing it.

Only works for individual actions, though, not for whole projects.
