Why checkbox appearing for tags with asterisk when adding labels?

D

This seems to be happening now when I go back and add a label to a tag with asterisk which already has at least one label.

Really need the labels to follow the task rather than precede which would seem to fix this problem and also allow many labels to be added without losing task subject line as focus.

Correction - meant to say "task" above not tag.

Hello David,

he cause of this issue is that all labels are being displayed at the beginning of a task and if you edit a task that has both a label and an asterisk, the asterisk is being moved AFTER the label when you open the input box and therefore, if you save it, the script will not find the asterisk at the front of the whole line and ignore it in the middle.

We're aware of this issues, it's a bit difficult to correct, but we will consider releasing a fix in the future. Sorry for the inconvenience.

For now, please try to move the asterisk to the front if you've editing a "header"-task with no checkbox that also has labels.


Best regards,
David

This is an issue for me as well. It is easy to forget to re-enter the asterisk every time which is frustrating.

This is major issue for me, and I would imagine many others as well. Working on long plan, very time consuming to have to move tags back to end of line every time item is edited to keep checkbox from reappearing. Any news on resolution of this issue? (why not keep tags at end of line as in prior releases?)

Hello Steven,

Please note that this issue only occurs if you use labels in headers. Basically, labels were designed to work with tasks, that is - active tasks that can be checked off. Task groups (headers), which contain an asterisk in front of their name, can't be checked off and therefore don't work the same as tasks.

To improve our software, we always try to understand best how it's being used and we would appreciate if you could let us know how many task headers you usually have and how are you using labels with them. This would help us implement better solutions for handling them.


Best regards,
David
