I have a need for this too.

My workaround is when I am in planning mode, right-click a task and click "Show in Context Mode" then right click again and "Show in Planning Mode"

voila! the project will be selected in planning mode on the lefthand side.

yes, it's a bit hokey but it works.

Is there a more straightforward way to accomplish this?

I often need to do this "hack" when searching for a project in the hierarchy.

I'd prefer not have to backtrack to a straight list - hierarchy is one of the best features in OF and why I am choosing it over Things and the GTD Outlook Add-in at the moment!
