Color changes with copy/paste, saves

I'm using OG 4.2.3 and I'm getting super frustrated by something: Whenever I copy/paste an object, or duplicate it with option-drag, the color of the new version is different than the original...

Spider diagrams?

Anyone know of a way to create data-generated spider diagrams in OG? Something like the pie-chart scripts that are out there, but which does a spider diagram instead would be great. I'm ultimately...

Are you familiar with the "Hoist" function in OO? It lets you focus down to a single chunk of items. In the case of using KGTD it will show a single project at once. It's in the View menu. Not...

Anyone else feel pop-up calendars are a must-have?

One thing that causes a major hassle for me in OmniPlan is the lack of pop-up calendars when entering start/end dates for tasks. Does anyone else think this is virtually a show-stopper? OK, maybe not...
