What's new in this version:

All Platforms:
- Device Focus Filters — In the Focus section of the Settings app, you can now configure Focus Filters for OmniFocus to limit which folders are visible when a device Focus is enabled. Note that when a device Focus is applied in this way, it’s no longer possible to use the custom Focus feature in OmniFocus Pro until you exit the device Focus. (OmniFocus Focus Filters require macOS 14, iOS 17, or iPadOS 17. Support for device Focus is not available in visionOS at this point in time.)
- Shortcuts — New Set/Remove Favorite Perspective shortcut. With this shortcut, you can change your favorite perspectives based on your device focus or by using a Siri command. (Shortcut requires macOS 14, iOS 17, or iPadOS 17.)
- Custom Perspectives [Pro] — You can now intersperse comments among your perspective rules
- Clean Up — Selected items now immediately clean up when removed from current view via drag & drop or a key command
- Forecast Calendars — Calendar events are now enabled by default in Forecast on iPhone, iPad, and Apple Vision Pro, matching the default behavior on Mac
- Import — Choosing to skip syncing during setup now offers to import data from previous versions of OmniFocus
- Inspector — Updated Inspector layout code to be better shared cross-platform, including some visual changes for cross-platform consistency
- Localizations — Localization updates
- Outline — Improved overall stability/reliability of outline order when editing
- Review — Review now supports filtering by availability
- Sync — Provide more context in the encryption passphrase prompt
- Custom Perspectives [Pro] — The correct tag is now assigned when adding an action to a custom perspective which groups actions by tag but doesn’t sort them in Tags Order
- Custom Perspectives [Pro] — Addressed a bug that could cause manually sorted custom perspectives to temporarily reorder after assigning a tag to an item
- Custom Perspectives [Pro] — When a perspective is grouped, hiding the “Preserve hierarchy” switch, its hidden value no longer affects the contents of the perspective
- Forecast — Improved flexible Forecast order logic when both “Preserve Hierarchy” and “Keep Sorted” are enabled
- Forecast — Indenting an item in Forecast no longer causes temporary duplicate display of that item
- Inbox — Fixed a bug that could cause Inbox items to reorder unexpectedly
- Outline — Fixed a bug where items in the Inbox could not be reordered in the Projects perspective the way they could be in the Inbox perspective
- Quick Open — Fixed a bug where using Quick Open to find a project or folder would fail to select that target in the sidebar when the window was focused
- Sidebar — Fixed a bug that could cause content displayed in the outline to fall out of sync with the selection in the sidebar
- Sync — Prevented a rare sync conflict that could be encountered when a device syncs changes while edits are in progress
- TaskPaper — Default defer/due times are now respected when pasting TaskPaper items that only have a date
- TaskPaper — The current year is now assumed when TaskPaper items include partial dates
- Stability — Fixed a crash that could occur when a perspective with a date-based filter rule refreshes its reference date

Mac:
- Rich Text Notes — Added a Text submenu to the Format menu, with options to Align Left, Center, Justify, Align Right, and change the Writing Direction. Moved the existing font controls into a Font submenu, and added support for Strikethrough, Kern, Ligatures, and Baseline (i.e. Superscript, Subscript, Raise, Lower).
- Settings — General Settings now has an option to delete items without requiring the Command key.
- Custom Perspectives [Pro] — Adding a new item via “Add Perspective…” menu item no longer opens the Perspectives window unnecessarily.
- Custom Perspectives [Pro] — Assigning a keyboard shortcut to a custom perspective now saves correctly and no longer breaks additional edits to custom perspective rules.
- Forecast — Corrected the display of the date headers in Forecast when “Show toolbar button shapes” is enabled in System Accessibility Settings.
- Keyboard — Keyboard focus is now placed in the main outline when opening a perspective via its URL.
- Notes — Improved buggy “Add Link” behavior
- Notes Inspector — Fixed a bug where the notes inspector could accidentally save edits to a newly selected item, or continue to display content from an old item if the cursor was still in the notes field when a new item was selected (using some interaction that didn’t first move the cursor’s focus to another field).
- Outline — Note text is now properly aligned with other content in the main outline
- Outline — Items now immediately display in their new order when using the “Sort Once” command
- Perspectives List — In the Perspectives List, each row’s Action button is easier to click on
- Search Scope — Fixed a regression introduced in 4.2 where the search scope was being reset whenever a different perspective was opened
- Software Update — Updates no longer fail to install when System Integrity Protection is disabled
- View Options — The “Preserve Hierarchy” checkbox now updates to reflect its checked state immediately
- Stability — Fixed a crash pasting into the note field of the Inspector
- Stability — Fixed a crash that could occur creating a child action in Forecast
