Whilst I love sub-tasks (my reason for coming here from RTM), I'm getting increasingly frustrated with the fact they don't move with their parent when I re-order tasks, this leaves them assigned to a different parent task.


- task 1 v
-- subtask 1
-- subtask 2
- task 2

If I were to drag task 2 to between task 1 and subtask 1, then the two subtasks would now be assigned to task 2:

- task 1
- task 2 v
-- subtask 1
-- subtask 2

This is messy, dangerous and wrong.
Can you change the logic so that either a) a task dragged to a position below a task with subtasks is inserted below the subtasks or b) subtasks are assigned to a task in a hierarchical manner rather than being implied by position and indentation. I'd prefer option b. This would remove the need for user-set indentation.

+1, definitely! That's an expected behavior - if a sub-task is associated with a parent task, it should move as a unit.
