With the change from context to tags, I found I no longer needed projects like"Repeating", which really isn’t a project, and I have have a lot of tasks without a project. This is good, and I only have project for things that are really projects.
On iOS I create tasks with tags and no project and everything works fine. I clean up items that just have a tag so all my tasks without a project don’t stay in my inbox. This was all working well.
I recently upgraded to OmniFocus 3 for Mac, I spend most of my time in OmniFocus for iOS, and once I upgraded and started using it all of my tasks that didn’t have a project got assigned to the Miscellaneous project. Argh. Miscellaneous in not a project. I removed the Miscellaneous project from all of the tasks, but OmniFocus for Mac keeps adding the Miscellaneous project back when I open OmniFocus. It seems like there should not be a Miscellaneous project since that really makes no sense, and instead have a view or perspective to view all tasks without a project.
How can I have OmniFocus for Mac leave my tasks that don’t have a project assigned as they are without a project and not assign them to the Miscellaneous project?
Update: With OmniFocus iOS, if I clean up a task that just has a tag it moves it from the inbox and leaves it with no project. With OmniFocus macOS it adds the task to the Miscellaneous project. This seems like a bug in OmniFocus macOS
