Interface bug Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I think I've found an interface bug; under certain circumstances, indenting multiple tasks makes them either vanish or go somewhere else. I found it with this structure:

PROJECT
Task1
Subtask1
Task2
Task3

I tried to indent (via keyboard shortcut) both Task2 and Task3 at the same time, and they went away.

Possibly important clue: I notice this behavior only happens when the project is serial, rather than parallel.

If there's an official bug-report form thingy, I'll be happy to file this.

Does changing the middle View Bar selector to "Remaining" or "All" recover them?
 
I think it might be something other than indenting, as I'm unable to replicate the behavior. It might be with one of the View settings, I think the Next/Available/Remaining setting, as there is some screwy behavior about this:

1. Set your view bar to Ungrouped/Unsorted/Next/Any/All
2. Create a new project
3. Enter tasks, but don't bother with indenting them:
PROJECT
Task1
Subtask1
Task2
Task3

4. Select Subtask 1 and indent it (command-])
=> Task 1 gets the "action group" triangle and styling, but Subtask 1 is still at the same visual level as Task 1

5. Select Task 2 and 3 and indent them (commmand-])
=> The project gets rearranged so it looks like this
PROJECT
Task2
Task1
Subtask1
Task3

Task 1 and Subtask 1 both the action group triangle, but everything is visually on the same level.

6. Change from Next to Available or All, and the hierarchy is as you would expect now.

Whoops - you're right. My bad.

Not a bug!
