Can't see Omnifocus main window no matter what i do Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Prev Previous Post   Next Post Next
I am a new user, and not an expert with computers to begin with.

Got a license for Omnifocus a few days ago, downloaded it to my macbook
pro, right onto my desktop (not in the Apps folder yet).

Opened Omnifocus just fine, and started using it.

At some point, without thinking, I started cleaning up my desktop, and
MOVED the Omnifocus app.

From that point forward, no matter what I do, I can see the Omnifocus Menu
on the top of my screen when I fire it up, and the icon for Omnifocus
appears in my dashboard, with the number "26" (for the 26 tasks I had
inputted), BUT I CANT SEE ANY PART OF THE OMNIFOCUS WINDOW ITSELF. I can only see my desktop.

Fixes I have tried:

1. I tried deleting Omnifocus and downloading it again.

Because I'm not great with computers, I'm not sure if I trashed all traces
of my first download before I began my second. So I am now worried that
I've got more than one instance of Omnifocus.

Whenever I rightclick click on the Omnifocus icon in my dashboard, at the very top of the resultant menu I see three "Omnifocus"'s listed, with a check next to one of them, presumably indicating the one I am using.

Feeling stuck with my own stupidity.

2. I tried to delete the omni focus "lock" file in library/app

I did this because once I downloaded Omnifocus again, I would get the "override lock?" error.

This didnt work. I still can't see any part of Omnifocus to work in, other than the manu at the top of the screen and the dashboard icon.

3. I even checked to make sure the window wasnt hidden because of
something dramatically stupid and simplistic, like hot corners, or b/c the
window was minimized by me.

No luck; please help.

Thanks in advance -
