Todoist windows 7 application opening in wrong format

M

For some reason today, my todoist windows 7 application is opening in 'website' format rather than in the narrow desktop application format.

By that I mean it is opening in 'wide mode' like you find as if I had just logged into the website, with the column of tasks on the right, but the menu of filter and projects on the left, rather than how it used to open in narrow mode with everything in one narrow column and the 'show menu' button at the top which drops down the project list and filter list. I've restarted my computer several times and it is still doing this. The outlook add-in and my firefox add-in are both correctly displaying todoist in the narrow single column, but every time i do the Ctrl+alt+T to open the windows application version, it is opening it in wide-mode.

I like the narrow mode as it sits nicely on the side of my screen as I have other windows open. In wide-website mode, it takes up a large portion of my screen just to use the application.

Is there some setting somewhere I should use? Or do i need to reinstall the app for some reason?

Hello M,

Please right-click on the TD icon in the notifications area (system tray) and choose "Home". This will bring you to the correct page. Then, please clarify is using Ctrl+Alt+T will bring you back to the incorrect page again.


Best regards,

That seemed to resolve the width issue. Thank you.
and Ctrl+Alt+T is working correctly now as well.

Although now I'm having trouble with some of the keyboard shortcut keys not working. For example, holding a number while dragging and dropping isn't indenting the task. Nor is ctrl+right arrow or left arrow indenting the task. Both of these keyboard shortcuts were working fine yesterday. Now holding Ctrl+Right arrow is just jumping the cursor from one word to the next (as it would in a word doc).

Thoughts?

Please make sure that you are within a project when you try to indent a task. It's not possible to indent when you're on a date-based view or any custom filter as in these views it would be impossible to see under which task you're actually indenting a certain task, because they display tasks across different projects if they meet the search criteria.


Best regards,
David

Perfect, that was my issue. All is resolved and working correctly. Thank you.
