projects groupings not visible in context mode? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes

I have a number of groupings in a project for a class I am taking. The structure of the project looks something like this:

class :
reading :
writing :
The "class" is the top level project, while "reading" and "writing" are the groupings within those projects. However, the "reading" and "writing" groupings are not visible in context mode. Does it have something to do with the actions having contexts assigned and the groupings not having contexts assigned?

Is there any way to have the groupings appear with the actions in context mode?

No, the lack of contexts for the action groups is a red herring, as you will see if you make a little test project and experiment.

Action groups only appear in context mode when all of their contained actions have been completed (if viewing available actions) or if viewing remaining actions (in which case they will follow the contained actions, not precede them). You don't get an indented view, but the action groups (and projects) are styled differently than the actions.

An example:

Seen in context mode, showing remaining actions:

Seen in context mode, showing only available actions:

Note that because there are no remaining actions in the Reading section, it shows as available.
