Wow, sorry to hear that. I'm not ready to give up my PowerBook just yet.

How did you determine that your perspectives didn't transfer? Did you look in the Perspectives window, or at the Perspectives menu? They won't be installed in the toolbar by default, so if the absence of perspective buttons in the toolbar was how you concluded they didn't transfer, you may have been misled.
I know the perspectives do not load in the toolbar, but they were not in the P-window or P-menu either.

I downloaded the SneakyPeek this morning (Wed, 8/26) and my Get Info says its version 77.32.0.117860.

I hope this helps.

I'd rather you fix bugs I report than reply to my email, if I have to choose one or the other :-)

I investigated further and discovered that while we were loading the old perspective, we weren't saving it yet because the database was in the process of being loaded. So I restructured the code a bit to make that work, and you should start seeing .loaded files again in r117865 and later.
Rerunning my tests with 117867, I agree that it seems to work as you describe, and I haven't found any more holes.

Try it again with the current version, please. We don't want Ken slacking off before his work is done :-)
 
I think this is tied into behavior with 1.6, when you choose a default perspective, -- I'm trying to get the latest 1.7 build going with (v77.32.0.117867), and am still waiting for my perspectives to all open from the Finder after 1.5 hours -- anyway, I'm seeing what I think will be my perspectives carried forward from 1.6, showing up staggered in the Finder.

When I open a bunch of TextMate, or whatever, docs, I often stagger them manually, so I have some alliance with this, but for OF, I always want to be able to see the default perspective/window in its glorious fullness, and not have it slip under the always needed (for me) Inspector window. So no staggering, I say! Flush left, and let the user navigate the windows via the menu.

thanks

Bob

That's OK, we're not ready to release new major versions of our apps just yet either!
 
Hi,
im using a german version of OmniFocus and the translation of the new features is still missing. Just keep that in mind because its looking strange to have that mix of english and german in one dropdown box.
Regards,
Martin
 
It's late and I'm tired, but it seems like perspectives recently lost the preservation of expansion state in the sidebar. I'm looking at rev 117959. Can anyone confirm this?

I just set up some perspectives to expand and collapse individual elements of my sidebar, and they seem to be working in my tests. However, I did discover that when I relaunched the app with one of those perspectives active it didn't apply the sidebar expansion properly until I clicked on the perspective again.

Does that match what you're seeing?

UPDATE: Oh ho, it's not just on launch, it seems to have trouble restoring the sidebar expansion whenever it's entering a view mode for the first time, i.e. if clicking on a perspective takes you from from project to context mode or vice versa. A second click seems to apply the saved state (since you're already in the right mode). Digging deeperů

Dennis,

Also take a look at the Perspective window and make sure the Restore Expansion checkbox is checked. The release notes indicate a recent bug fix with that part of the UI. Apparently the UI control wasn't always matching the underlying data. I had a perspective that previously failed to restore expansion. After rev. 117867 I saw that Restore Expansion was off, though it previously appeared to be on but not working.

Anyway, rechecking that box and taking a snapshot of the perspective has it working, modulo the bug that Ken just found.

Cheers,

Curt
