TD Add task button doesnt appear on gmail toolbar in vertical split


The button that appears at the top of an opened email next to Labels and More doesn't appear when using split panes in GMail. How can I address this or is this an issue that TD must fix? I only use email in vertical split and so it limits the features of TD that I can use.

Hi Russel,

Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do at this time. That Preview Pane labs feature breaks the email ID which our plugin requires to work. We are trying to find another solution, but that is how it works. We are hoping that Google (whomever created the lab feature) will eventually change how it works, so it does not change the ID.

Any.do's plugin works with the Preview Pane Labs. I would give them a call. :)

Evernote's web clipper also seems to work with the Preview Pane lab as well. Although theirs seems to fail when I combine Boomerang with Preview Pane. How about if user id's the thread by checking the threads checkbox?

I'm surprised this isn't given more priority. A major drawback.
