That's why I am currently falling in love with TaskPaper. Just a text file with a great application for Mac (one time purchase, no subscriptions) where you can create Horizons of Focus hierarchies (in an indented outline format), tag each line with tags and dates and use a powerful search syntax to see just the lines you want to see. And - since everything is stored in text file - you can copy your data anywhere you want and you can have multiple files for different purposes (work, personal etc.). @mcogilvie @Longstreet @Gardener
it does have its advantages, and I used it for a while. It lacks some of the amenities of other apps, but the most significant is a good sync solution. I never had problems, but it was a concern. I think the Taskpaper format is probably going nowhere, in spite of Omni’s idiosycratic decision to use it for import/export in OmniFocus. But that hardly matters.
