What is included in an "On hold" project Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes

I am a bit confused by what I'm seeing as "On hold" tasks. I have defined a perspective called Waiting which uses the following settings:

Context filter: On Hold
Grouping: Project
Sorting: Due
Availability filter: Remaining
Status filter: Any status

Now the part that confuses me is that beside the projects that are actually "On hold", I also see the "No Context" and there a bunch of tasks that are **not** on hold (at least it's not clear why those would be considered as being on hold).

Could anyone please shed some light on what am I seeing and the rationale behind?


Contexts themselves can be put on hold.
If you don't plan to be in Patagonia for a couple of weeks, you can put your 'Patagonia' context on hold.

That's what
Context Sidebar Filter:On Hold
is about in the perspective editor,
and it's quite separate from:
Project Sidebar Filter:On Hold
which filters for projects that have been put on hold.
Rob, that makes sense. But how can "No context" be "On hold"?

The No Context subtree isn't subject to the "on-hold" filter, which only affects the Contexts subtree.

If you only want to see tasks of contexts which have been put on hold, you can select the top-level Contexts folder in the Context Mode sidebar.
