Arrangement of Projects Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I have just started using OmniFocus for IPAD. I create my Projects at random within a Folder or category, with the mind that I could reorder them in a preferred sequence. I am able to reorder Actions but the same does not seem to be possible for Projects.

Is there something I have failed to do, or that is just how it is?

Drill down in the projects list until you have the projects you want to rearrange visible on the left. Then tap the Edit button and drag the projects into the order you want, using the handles at the right end of the rows. Tap Done.

If you want to move an item between levels in the hierarchy, use the Move button in the editor popover.

You arrange contexts in the same way you do projects.
 
I just want to post this because I feel some other Newbies like me, might have it useful.

My problem was that I was trying to rearrange my projects in portrait view and so, the moment I hit the edit button it just goes blank. I just felt like trying out the landscape mode and there I was able to re-arrange all projects - into the
sequence I wanted them in. Working great.

Thanks for pointing out the landscape tip because I was arranging projects one day then the next day I couldn't, and I was wondering if I came across a bug. It was driving me crazy!

In case it helps: in most views, actions should get three horizontal bars on the right hand side (replacing the checkbox) which you can drag to rearrange the actions inside their projects.

I just noticed that button is active in Review mode, though, which doesn't seem particularly helpful. Filed that as a "this is confusing and possibly a bug" item, so if that's what happened, I'm really sorry. :-)

Gack! Doesn't reviewing a project seem like a time when one might want to shuffle things around in that project?

Not only seems, but is. I rearrange some tasks in nearly every review.

I often think of a next action while reviewing and add it. But in almost every case the action I add is not the last to be done and so must be moved

So Brian it's not a mistake
