Freezing and Force Quit Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Hi, All. I've been having trouble with OF freezing and then needing to use Force Quit before I can use it again. Is this a Lion issue?

I've not seen this issue on Lion. You may wish to contact support.
It happens to me too, after starting up OF. I am convinced it's a Lion issue as it started happening only once I upgraded. Re-installing the app works for me as a temporary remedy, although I had my Mac database get corrupted once and luckily had a good copy on my server to restore. I sent Omni support a process sample a few weeks back, from the activity monitor when the app hung, I would recommend you sending in a process sample as well, the more info the better.
Thanks for your help.
I'm having the same problem almost every time I start OmniFocus: start up, force quit, start up 2nd time. After I force OmniFocus to quit, during the second startup I get a dialog box asking whether I want to restore the windows from my last session. I click no and then OF opens and works fine.

I began having this problem immediately after I installed Lion. I suspect it's due to Lion's Saved Application State.

Twice I tried closing all OmniFocus windows before quitting. Both times, the next time I opened it I had no problems. Also, one time I deleted the OmniFocus file in the Library>Saved Application State folder, and it subsequently opened without a problem.
I am seeing the exact same behavior OF hangs on the first attempt at opening, I force-quit it, I reopen it, it reopens asking me if I want to restore windows. I suspect it has something to do with having other apps in full-screen mode. I always have one or more apps in full-screen mode when I open OF. I think this is somehow confusing OF about how/where to open its windows. Just a hunch. I will try and investigate further.
