OmniFocus for Mac 3.2

January 14, 2019

Requires macOS 10.13

OmniFocus 3.2 adds support for background notifications in macOS Mojave, restores support for repeats specified in minutes, and fixes bugs.

  • Notifications (Requires macOS Mojave) — OmniFocus for Mac now supports the same notification types as OmniFocus for iOS. You can be notified at the time an item is deferred until or due, or at the latest time you should start (due time minus estimated duration). There is also a custom option that lets you set a notification for some amount of time before the item’s due time—or at a completely arbitrary time. Due, Deferred, and Latest Start notifications can be made the default for all items via OmniFocus Preferences; notifications for specific items can be configured in the Notifications Inspector.
  • Preferences — Added a Notifications preference pane for macOS Mojave users, reorganized the Badges preference pane, and moved the Today Widget preferences to a new Extensions preference pane. Renamed the Synchronization preference pane to Sync.
  • Repeats — You can once again configure a repeat using an interval specified in Minutes.
  • Customize Toolbar — Fixed a problem with this sheet’s Done button when there were enough toolbar items to make it taller than the screen height.
  • Encryption — OmniFocus now offers recovery instructions when encountering a problem where data on the server is encrypted with an unknown key (this previously resulted in an unrecoverable “No Key in Slot” error).
  • Free Viewer — Fixed a problem where the notice bar that alerts you that OmniFocus is running in Free Viewer mode did not appear in direct builds.
  • Perspectives — Fixed a problem where actions would disappear from “Entire Projects” custom perspectives as soon as a project was assigned, instead of correctly waiting for clean up.
  • Today Widget — Fixed a problem in the Today Widget that could result in an OmniFocus crash.
  • VoiceOver — Made several improvements to VoiceOver support in OmniFocus.
  • Documentation — Updated the in-app help and added a link to Inside OmniFocus to the Help menu.
  • Smaller Fixes and Improvements — Including crash fixes.

OmniFocus for Mac 3.1.4

December 20, 2018

Requires macOS 10.13

  • Sync — OmniFocus now recovers from “Reference of object which could not be resurrected” errors by moving orphaned items to the Inbox (Actions) or the top level of Projects (Projects and Folders) or Tags (Tags).

OmniFocus for Mac 3.1.3

November 15, 2018

Requires macOS 10.13

  • Tags — Fixed a problem where editing a context in OmniFocus 2 could result in lost tag assignments during a database rebuild–such as when updating to a new release. This release repairs databases that were affected by this issue and prevents further lost tag assignments. Any tag assignments already lost will need to be reapplied; we’re very sorry for the inconvenience!
  • Crash — Fixed a crash related to color spaces.
  • Repeats — Fixed a problem where dates on the children of repeating items would not be correctly incremented upon repeat.

OmniFocus for Mac 3.1.2

October 24, 2018

Requires macOS 10.13

  • Notes — Added a Simplify Style item to the Format menu that cleans up note formatting without clearing styles completely. Simplify Style preserves attachments, links, bold, italics, strikethrough, and underline, and discards the rest of your selection’s style information (including font size and color).
  • Notes — Improved handling of clipping and pasting rich text from other applications to avoid creating notes with unwanted black text, which made them illegible when using the OmniFocus Dark theme.
  • Notes — If the text foreground color of a note is too dark (or too light) to read against the background color of the current theme, OmniFocus now displays the note in a more suitable color.
  • Crash — Fixed a crash enabling and disabling columns in View Options.
  • Crash — Fixed a crash related to Undo and Quick Entry.
  • Crash — Fixed a crash when deleting a tag from the main window, then saving an action with that tag from Quick Entry.
  • Crash — Fixed a regression where running a script which populated, then opened, Quick Entry could result in either data loss or a crash.
  • Toolbar — Improved the appearance of the Focus toolbar button in the OmniFocus Dark theme.
