How to undo project deletion Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I've just downloaded OF for iPhone and sync'd with my Mac database.

I was just having a look my projects when I accidentally deleted one of them. How do I get it back?
 
If you don't have any changes on the phone which you need to keep, and the deletion hasn't synced to the desktop yet, you can reset the sync database from the desktop's database, then sync again on the phone to get the restored sync database on the phone.

If it _has_ synced to the desktop already, you can open one of your OmniFocus backups (assuming you have an up-to-date backup), find the the project in question there, and drag it back to the main OmniFocus database. (Then syncs all around in order to push the project back to the sync database and the iPhone.)
 
Great, thanks.

How do you "drag it back to the main database"?

Open your backup file (probably located in Documents/OmniFocus backups in your home directory) by double-clicking on it once you've got OmniFocus up and running. The backup will open in a separate window titled something like "OmniFocus 2008-11-20 104018" and you can simply drag the missing project from that window to the sidebar of the main window. Then close the window from the backup so you don't accidentally enter some data there.
