a non-issue bug.

NM

In the outlook version of Todoist, if I roll the mouse down (down not up) the left edge of the tasks and touch only the "handles" that can drag the tasks up or down in the list, then the tasks will highlight and stay highlighted.

Definitely doesn't do anything wrong, I just thought it was kinda funny.

Hi Mark,

To clarify, if you use your mouse scroll wheel within Todoist for Outlook, it highlights the tasks?

Does this happen in the browser? Does clearing the cache for IE resolve the issue?

Thanks,
Brendon.

Nope, clearing the cache did not fix it. But I don't think that I would call it an "issue" as much as a quirk.

Just moving my mouse from one handle to the handle directly below it. No scrolling. It's almost like I'm just barely "touching" the task's handle.

Mark,

It can be possible to drag and select (text) which sounds like what you are doing when you click anywhere (maybe missing the drag icon) and then dragging. This might be what is happening.

The drag icon area does need to be fairly exact for it to work.

Thanks,
Brendon.

If I could do a screen shot I'd show you. Anyway, it's not an issue.

Love the app, and keep up the good work guys!

Thanks!

Mark,

Thank you for the shots. This is indeed a very obscure issue :) We will look into it as we rewrite our Outlook app, but it could as well be caused by Internet Explorer. Regardless of your default browser settings, the plugin will use IE to connect. Which version of IE do you have on your computer?


Best regards,
David

IE 10.0.92.

I've had some issues with IE with other software too, so I wouldn't be surprised if it's an IE fluke.
