DerekM and Arild,

I am very (much too) familiar with using FileMaker to organize my life. The problems with Filemaker are that (a) the structure of the file is completely determined, if you want...

I'll try to remember to test this after I install Snow Leopard (whenever that may be). It may be a bug in my system.

Thank you, Myrrh. All good ideas. I'll try resetting Launch Services, and if it helps I'll post it here. It's hard to believe that it is in the account settings, as I can replicate this, but you...

OmniFocus is for getting things done, OmniOutliner for writing outlines. OmniOutliner allows you to write more than one outline on your computer (duh! I know), while OmniFocus works on your (single,...

Well, I was able to pin this down a little more. It turns out, on my computer at least, any account that I create, if I launch OmniOutliner I get this freeze of about 10 secs followed by "Couldn't...

OMG, you're right. This is the key that is used by many programs, esp. in Windows, to mean "abandon changes", so it has exactly the opposite meaning in OmniFocus. Maybe we should map command-Q to...

Yeah, me too from 74.53.243.34 (Chicago). Perhaps there is a 'bot that scans the group looking for login's and then trying simple passwords? I can't imagine why anyone else would want to hack into a...

Escape key?

Is it me, or is it OmniGroup?

Print section (newbie)

I am confused. Reading the manual etc. it looks like I should be able to incorporate a "section" name in the header or footer of a printed document, but I don't seem to be able to do this.
