How to sort items? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I have a project called ToLearn and it is set for single actions.
Let's say I have 4 tasks with in the project that display in this order:
OmniFocus for iPad
Accordance - watch podcast
Learn Evernote
Play with Kindle app

How do I change this ordering to put "Learn Evernote" second?
Is there any manual re-ordering?

Tap on hold on an action (in project view). This will activate reordering in the outline view which will let you drag around actions.

This isn't what I get.

When I tap and hold all items get a red - and a popup dialog appears saying cut, copy, paste, delete.

I can't seem to find any way to drag items

Any more suggestions

The grabber bars appear on the right of your action field. Hold and drag to rearrange.
Yep, that did it. Pretty simple when you know the trick!

Oh, sorry for not explaining fully :)

No problem. It's impossible to know what people know or don't know. I'm just delighted it's possible!
Note that those grabber bars are common in many iOS apps, so you learned a re-useful trick!


I think it's pretty handy. I hope they will show up in OmniOutliner for iPad!
Derek, this works fine with actions but how about projects? If I want to move a project to another folder how do I accomplish this?
