That did it, thanks a lot. I'll try the other sites that gave me a hard time in the past, in particular the newspaper sites.

Me, too. eBay have no problem with the old copy of OW (5.5.4) that I'm using.

That is quite interesting, considering that:

Speaking of "alternatives" and "the competition", let me point out TaskPaper. For the likes of myself, this is much more of a competition to OF. I never have been able to embrace iGTD, which too...

Not being privy to that information, I sure hope their vaunted new system does help with recovering from user error and the "unflag-and-complete" problem we've talked about earlier, too.

Feature request: filter to show all projects _except_ completed

Don't know whether this has been suggested before -- bear with me if it has.

While wondering about filters in OF (ceterum censeo: the option to filter for "all" in context view should be brought...

Subject line says everything. Can you get rid of it?

Q: how to deal with unspecific functionality on Web pages?

OmniWeb is my main browser and has been for a couple of years (yes, a long time in computing). While it generally copes with everything I throw at it -- plus, of course, there are its obvious...

Curt -- thanks for pointing me to the MOTD.

Let me point out once more why this behaviour irks me: It makes it unnecessarily complicated to use flags for selecting a subset of your next actions.

Filter for "all tasks" disappeared

As of 92555, the option to filter for "all tasks" (i.e., not to filter at all) has disappeared from the filter bar in context view.

I hope this is just a temporary lapse, as I depend on this...

I am afraid not, although I stand ready to be corrected by my betters.

Yes, this appears to work rather well, and is already on a par with other mechanisms such as Stata's or NovaMind's. Thanks a lot, well done.

Seconded, for consistency between the Omni apps.

But let us have something like <cmd>+<return> for a quick way out of the "quick" entry panel.

Also, there are good reasons to separate time-related activities (such as appointments) from "to do"s. What you need for the latter is project deadlines, though, which OF handles very well IMHO.

A plea for activating the <enter> key

Hi there,

just a half-baked feature request: Omni "ought to do something" with the <enter> key (as opposed to the <return> key), pressing which seems to have no effect at all at present.
