Windows app: Label dropdown list not visible


Since some of the last updates of the Windows app I am experiencing problems adding labels to a task: First I thought it is an internal problem of the app which has possibly troubles to fetch the list of my labels, but it seems that the only problem is an incorrect offset of the label dropdown - if the window of the Windows app is too small, or if I am editing task that is close to its bottom, the dropdown list appears below the bottom of the window and cannot be accessed. See screenshots.

It does not happen using the web interface (at least in Firefox).

Hello Jan,

Thank you for your report, but unfortunately I can't reproduce this issue. The label selection drop-down seems to open right below the input field, not like on your screenshots.

That said, please try to right-click on the TD icon in the system tray, use the logout option there, then log back in and see if the issue persists.

Best regards,

first I though that it went away after some updates but now I am seeing this again: I suspect that the position of the label drop-down list window does not depend only on the position of the label dialog window, but it depends also on the position of the right scrollbar.

You can see that it was the same case in May. To make it more obvious, I am attaching a sequence of screenshots where I am clicking on the "@" icon and varying the position of the scrollbar.

Best regards,

So it scrolls when you scroll to put it simply? We will look into fixing this in coming updates. You can try logging out, searching Windows Explorer for Doist & Todoist and remove all and logging back in.
