completed projects automatically are hidden Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I cant work out the preference for not having completed projects automatically delete once there are no actions left.

here is my scenario.

i have 3 folders: soon, later, someday. in these are projects.

outside of these folders i have repeating tasks in single action lists.

when the single action lists are empty they automatically are hidden. i dont want this to happen. i want to be able to add to them at a later day. it doesnt matter so much for the projects in my 'soon' folder.

how do i make the preference for not automatically deleting projects? I dont have 'mark project complete' box checked. i have my project filter on 'remaining'

is it possible to have different preferences for projects vs single action lists in regards to completion and deletion/hiding?
Yes. Select the project, bring up the inspector, and uncheck "mark complete when completing last item."

There's also a preference in OF preferences to set this as default (or not) for all newly created projects.
you are my saviour!

this was doing my head in.

nice to have a quick fix.
