OmniFocus for Mac 3.0

September 23, 2018

Requires macOS 10.13

OmniFocus 3 adds tags, advanced perspectives, more powerful repeat options, a new look and feel, and more:

  • Tags — Contexts have been replaced with tags. You can assign multiple tags to any item. Just like with contexts, you can give tags a status of Active, On Hold, or Dropped to help you organize your tagged items.
  • Custom Perspectives (PRO) — Perspectives created in OmniFocus 3 are built from filter rules and allow multiple tag selection, any/all/none groupings, and more. Once added, filter rules can be dragged to re-arrange. In addition to a custom icon, a custom tint color can now be chosen.
  • Repeats — There are now many more options for repeats than in OmniFocus 2, and a new Inspector UI that makes finding the type of repeat you’re looking for easier. Day-of-week and day-of-month intervals are now available for all repeat types.
  • Interleaved Forecast — Instead of siloing your calendar events within Forecast, they now appear as rows interleaved with your actions. You’ll get a better picture of exactly when in your day you should be getting things done.
  • Forecast Tag (PRO) — In Forecast’s View Options, you can choose a tag to display in Today. In this section, you’ll see available items with your chosen tag. This opens up a lot of possibilities for important items that don’t have explicit dates, for daily rituals, and a lot more! We’ve added an item to the Edit menu for applying and removing your forecast tag to the selection and gave it a shortcut (control-command-L).
  • Interface — We’ve updated the OmniFocus toolbar, sidebar, outline, and inspector to feel a little more at home in 2018. The single-line Columns layout is now the default, but the two-line Fluid layout is still available via Preferences.
  • Touch Bar — Added common actions to the MacBook Pro Touch Bar.

OmniFocus for Mac 2.12.2

April 11, 2018

Requires macOS 10.12

  • Database Format — Once all your devices are running OmniFocus 2.22.3 for iOS (coming soon) or OmniFocus 2.12.2 for Mac (or later), you’ll be prompted to migrate to a new database format. More information on migration can be found here.

OmniFocus for Mac 2.12.1

March 14, 2018

Requires macOS 10.12

  • Encryption — If you used OmniFocus 2.12 for Mac or OmniFocus 2.22 or 2.22.1 for iOS to migrate your database to the latest format and previously set a distinct encryption passphrase, please verify that your distinct passphrase is still in place. A bug (now fixed) may have re-linked your encryption passphrase to your sync password.
  • Keychain — Fixed problems with keychain management that could make it hard to migrate your database to the newest format, or maintain a distinct encryption passphrase.
  • Repeating items — Fixed a bug where the next instance of a repeating item was not created when entering the completion date in the outline when using Custom Columns.
  • Hang — Fixed a hang when completing projects using the Complete toolbar button.
  • Scripting — The completed property of a task or project should have been marked as read-only in the scripting dictionary, but was not. Use the mark complete and mark incomplete commands to change the completion status of items.
  • Crash — Fixed a crash completing items in Quick Entry.
