Have a nested task show up when due..not the entire project.
For a task deep within a tree, have to click 5-6 times just to find out what it is lol.

This is the most important feature that keeps me from using the application: the fact that in the views projects seem more important than next actions. But they are not. In fact the project is irrelevant to me; I only need to see the next actions.

Thank you! That's a big help.
You can enter the "All" list (or any other list except Project) and disable the "Hide subtask" option.

I'm not sure if I even know how to use a "subtask," but my biggest complaint about DGT GTD (which is totally awesome in many respects) is that I'd like to have different views of my tasks - a view in which I can see the projects and then drill down to review the tasks within that project, AND a separate view in which I just see the individual tasks. Perhaps I have my settings wrong, but it seems that if a task (say, "email Joe") due today appears within a project, all my views tell me I have something due in the project ("Home Renovations") today, but not what the task is. I have to drill into the project to see.
I know having to drill down once may seem like a trivial complaint, but the whole point of GTD is supposed to be that once you've thought about your projects in a weekly review, your decisionmaking about what task to perform from moment to moment is effortless -- you quickly review your list of action items that can be done at the computer, say, and pick one. When I implemented GTD on paper, each context was a separate list, and I could just flip to that list and pick something appropriate.
I find that when I open the app and just see a list of projects, knowing that I have to drill down into each one to see whether it includes a task that fits the time and brainpower I have available, I just revert to "I know what I need to do" and close the app.
I'm not sure if "Hide subtasks" would help, but if it would I can't seem to find the setting....
Don't get me wrong, I understand your needs but I just want to give you an other tip: you can use the "Hide until" to filter tasks/projects/subtasks.
Excellent answer, precisely what I needed!

I understand this as it is annoying. You have 100 tasks in a project. 3 become due. So you either see everything even if not due if choose to not see subtasks and then have to go into the task to see what is due. Or lose the hierarchy by flattening. Better would be if you could see the due tasks underneath the parent node indented so don't have to go into project to see what is due otherwise you cannot do a scan of what is due And see the context of this.
I'd like to remind you that you have the option to show/hide subtasks.
Agree with this and would also like to see
subtasks show as indented.
You can turn off "Hide subtasks" and you'll see all tasks as a flat list.
