Switch Button Broken in Rev 95721? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I have the Switch button (Show current selection in Project/Context mode) added to my toolbar but it doesn't seem to be working. When I click it, nothing seems to happen. Then I got to the other mode and it looks like my filters have changed, but that's it.

Anybody else seeing this in rev 95721?
 
It's broken in 95718 as well. When I try in planning mode, I get a kind of blink in the sidebar, but nought else. In context mode, nothing happens at all.
 
Does the switch button work for anyone?

I know you canc cmd-1 and cmd-2, but I like the button, unless it doesn't work and should be removed from the tool bar
 
6125 and the button is working for me.
 
Revision: 96132

intel imac
osx 10.5.1


and it hasn't worked for me in about two weeks and every build since

96137 + intel MacBookPro + 10.5.1 and it works for me (always has).
 
I think there's some confusion. Cmd-1 and Cmd-2 change between Context and Planning modes. The Switch button switches to the other view [I]with the currently selected action selected in the new view[I]. The Switch button is not part of the default toolbar, but you can add it by Customizing the toolbar.

Not sure I understand your point

are you saying that cmd-1 only takes you to Planning
and cmd-2 only takes you to context, but
the switch button is suppose to take you back and forth?

oddy, I did a cmd-1 and cmd-2 and the switch button worked for a little bit, now it isn't working

kind of odd behavior

No, he's saying that "switch" is an operation done on the selected action(s). If you don't have a selected action or actions, switch isn't supposed to do anything.

It might more accurately be called "Select in Other Mode" or "Find in Other Mode".

I do see a small bug here. You can multi-select actions, even from different projects, and switch does the right thing. If you select nothing, switch is properly disabled. But if you select a project grouping (in context mode when grouped by project), the switch button is enabled but just beeps when you press it. That's an inconsistency -- it should either be disabled or work -- but that's minor, IMO.

how do you set multiple actions

I would like to have something be two things after the first action

like
Buy gift..............pines
pack gift............packing


should those two be sub groups or can I say

buy gift..............pines/packing

I am a little dense in understanding the switch button..thanks for your patience
