On OO for the iPhone, I'd like to be able to read and update all the basic fields - that's all. I don't need to fiddle with styles or other visuals on a small...

Not until there's OO for iPhone

Love OO4. Love OO2 for iPad.

But until I can use OmniOutliner on my iPhone, the only device that is with me all the time, I'm not using OO at all. (And not upgrading to OO4)

I'm spoiled by...

Kanban style!

Much of GTD makes good sense, but I've found the notion of contexts to be a pernicious distraction. It doesn't matter how cleverly I devise them, they always prove to be a waste of time. And because...

I'm regretfully with the OP. OmniFocus has too much of the database's rigidity, not enough of the pad and pencil's fluidity. I really don't enjoy using it, except that I *do* use it. To paraphrase...

Thanks!

Perfect! Sincere thanks - this hurdles one of OmniFocus's major omissions. I'm indebted to you for this and your OmniFocus-Devonthink interchange scripts.

I think in this case, the interpretation of "dropped" is too close to "deleted" in that the task goes AWOL from the task list.

Anyway, I seem to be alone in my angst, so I'll just give "dropped"...

So, I make a context "dropped" with the status...

My vexation is that Search is tied to the toolbar. To try and...
