copying an Item link from DT3 and then pasting it into an OmniFocus note.
When I click on the the link, (open the link) in Omnifocus it opens the the item in a new document window but not within the original DT3 window.
Is there a way of having it open as a document within the main DT3 window ?
As noted before in the forums, add
?reveal=1 to the end of an item link to show it in its current location.
This is also fully covered in the Help > Documentation > Automation > Item Links** section.
Thank you @BLUEFROG for your help and quick reply.
Here is what I am doing and it is still opening in a new window
Am I missing something?
Aa new window will be opened but it will be a main window with the file selected in its current location when you use the
reveal parameter. Otherwise a document window for the file is opened.
This is what I just tried.
I clicked on the link and it always just opens a document window and not a main window with …
Is the file already open in its own window?
Make sure it’s not open in a document window or selected in a main window first.
It isn’t and it even happens when dt3 is not open when I click on the link.
Interesting - I migrated from OmniFocus but I still have OmniOutliner installed. I can’t duplicate the problem. Are you editing the actual link, or the text that you click?
Move your cursor into the underlined link and hit command-K. That should let you edit the target of the link.
Just a wild guess.
I’m not at my Mac but maybe you are right and I’ll check soon.
this is embarrassing. You were correct.
