Scripts to open project folders and notes files

Although OF has good facilities for keeping notes on projects and tasks, I find that I often need to refer to project folders containing other supporting documents, and it's often useful to manage...

Strongly agreed. This is one of two things that I've been waiting for patiently since the original release of OmniFocus (and one of the advantages that Kinkless had over every other GTD app). The...

With respect to the lag, it's noticable on my 1.5 Ghz G4 Powerbook with regular manuscripts, ie. ~30 EndNote references in 6000 words. It's usable, of course, but the citations sort of "catch" as you...

Looked at another way...

This is also an argument for removing these features from the DB/metadata apps and making them very good at just that, with very easy editing, creation and display of file links. This would allow you...

There are a couple of issues with this:

How close are links to final form?

I'm interested in whether there will be any change in the display of links between now and the January release of OmniFocus. To tell the truth, this is the one thing that's prevented me from giving...

Another no

I would also vote no to absorbing content wholesale. However, I need to be able to link to content in the form of files and folders, and I'd like to be able to incorporate those links into textual...
