Delete behaviour: is this not The Right Thing To Do?

Delete letter, delete letter, delete letter, delete project...

OmniFocus and Mindmapping: much more than "That'd be nice"?

I noticed a recent thread about integrated mindmapping software with OmniFocus, and it got me thinking about just how much of a chasm there is between my planning, and my use of OmniFocus. And I...

Yes please too!

One thing I did before the latest update was to add a symbol in the name of perspectives that opened in a new window. So, those two perspectives were called:

Not the first thread to go in this direction!

Second that.

I second that. And I think it really comes down to the OF developers coming to terms with the fact that a whole lot of people would love to have the missing piece of useable and simple notifications...

Anyone tried the FireSprite visualizer for OmniFocus

I just downloaded FireSprite from www.KranK.us (SpiralOcean's sig). It's a visualizer widget that gives feedback based on tasks in OmniFocus.

Very cool concept! Looking forward to playing around...

Thanks so much

Ok. I was completely gapping out on the distinction between "Next" and "Available". Clearly, I was so apoplectic because I had been labouring under the belief that it was not possible to view either...

Tags in lieu of multiple locations
