Since 2.1 we’ve had scattered reports of the OmniFocus Today Extension getting stuck, and with 2.2 adding more options to the Extension it’s likely that more folks will start to experience the problem (we’re still working on a fix).
While we try to squash the behavior, these steps should work to reset a stuck OmniFocus Today Extension:
- Launch Applications > Utilities > Activity Monitor
- Switch to the CPU tab
- Search for OmniFocus; there should be two entries
- One has an OmniFocus icon, and the other has a generic plug-in icon (you may need to trigger Today in the sidebar, to get the second icon to show). Select the one with the plug-in icon.
- Select the menu View > Quit Process…, and click Force Quit.
When you next show Today, the extension should refresh with accurate information. In many cases (though not all), the fix endures.
