Confirmation on deleting Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Hi there,

I just realized that you can delete contexts and projects without any need of confirmation. And because there is no trash folder, all the actions included are gone.
Is that really true ??

It is, but not as much of an issue as you might think. First of all, if there are any hidden actions (for example, completed actions when showing only remaining actions), you'll get a warning if you try to delete the project/context/folder. Second, you can retrieve things from the backups by simply double-clicking on the backup file (stored by default in OmniFocus Backups in your Documents folder, see the General pane in OmniFocus Preferences) and dragging and dropping the missing stuff back into your regular database. There's also the Undo command if you realize that you've deleted something right after you do it.

If you really feel that a confirmation is needed, send in your feature request with Help->Send Feedback or email
