Omnifocus new action auto suggest existing actions

Hi - Ive looked through the forums but can seem to see any suggestions for this… Would it be possible to add the same search function found in the “project” field to the text of the action when creating a new action so that it searches for existing actions containing the same words, thereby saving the need to search for possible duplicates ahead of creating a new action? Would be particularly good to avoid creating the same action with slightly different order of words… Does that make sense?! Thanks.

Cool idea. Not possible with current version nor upcoming 4.x

Ahh shame…I wonder if it could be added to feature requests. Or are you suggesting that there is something fundamental about how OmniFocus is built that would prevent such a feature?

It’s possible to do. You can always log the feature request.
