Problems with Typing When Creating a New Task

Since about a week or two ago, I have noticed that the typing is acting up. I use Control N to enter a new task, and as I write the description, I decide that I want to change something at the beginning of the text; however, the cursor will not want to go to the beginning unless I use the back arrow.

Similarly, when I enter a description of the task, I have a similar problem. Once I pasted something in the description section, and again the cursor won’t go to the beginning or the middle of the pasted text to allow me to insert corrections.

Time to upgrade to OF2 or this can be fixed?

Hi there!

Sorry for the trouble here! In experimenting in OmniFocus 1 for Mac on my system (running OS X 10.10.4) it seems to be working normally for me, so I suspect there’s something else going on. Have you recently made any changes to your system (e.g. upgraded the OS, or new mouse or keyboard)?

If you haven’t already, I’d recommend restarting the Mac to see if that has any effect. If you’re having trouble you can email us at and we’ll be happy to troubleshoot further with you!
