if you test this link:

https://mail.google.com/mail/u/2/?shva=1#inbox/1420e106beba8c41 (someone) somenote

this will be fine, but when you click and edit, the "somenote" just simply disappeared. is this a bug?

Hi There,

To clarify, you create a task from an email with our Chrome or Firefox extension? You now want to edit the task, but is not possible, as in the link gets removed, or? What exactly happens when you go to edit the task?

When adding an email as a task, the code that we used to provide is no longer there, this results in a cleaner look, just text that is underlined.

Thanks,
Brendon.

I would like to apply some text format, is that possible? I do need some highlight for some of the task.

also, I can't apply @tags for the email tasks.

Hi,

The new way we process emailing of tasks results in a cleaner look and also that you don't have to deal with code. Though, any text added before the email does not work, so to add a label you need to add it to then end of the task name.

You can also bold text by using !! before and after the word.

Thanks,
Brendon.

please try this,

add a emailing task, then put a @tag at the end of the task, that's no problem. BUT when you click this task to edit, the @tag goes to the front of the task, then after you click done to finish edit, @tag became the part of the task. I believe this is a bug.

also, I think we can using !! for border, but why we can't use HIGHLIGHT?

====================

I really like todoist, simple and customized, please don't do things fancy. to be honest, I do like todoist on 2011.

is that possible you can add a option that we can switch off the "new way" to deal with the emailing tasks? I would like more customized emailing task than this cleaner one?

Hi,

You are correct. I have been able to reproduce this and I do believe this to be a bug. I have let the developers know about it.

Unfortunately though, there is no way to switch back to the old way of processing emails at this time.

Thanks,
Brendon.
