Problem trying to get the perspective name of the front window Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I'm trying to write a script for which I need the name of the current perspective in the front window.

When I execute the script below

tell application "OmniFocus"
	tell default document
		get properties of front document window
	end tell
end tell
The result is: Perspective name:Missing vlue,

Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?


Looks like a bug to me. If you set the value, it switches perspectives (assuming you set it to a value that matches one of your perspectives).

I agree, and I notice from a comment in this script, which resorts to work-arounds, that reading and clearing perspectives has been broken for a while, and probably needs a bit more bumping through Help > Send Feedback
