ERROR - Outlook plugin works steals focus


It always steals focus from other windows and menus - I cannot select any other menu item in Outlook - every half a second the plugin gets focus back. When I close the plugin window, its all normal. Please fix

(Win 7 enterprize, outlook 2007)

Hello Max,

when Todoist steals focus, are you hovering with your cursor over it?

If you're not, please tell me:
- Are you using the most recent version of the plugin?
- Is the Todoist plugin "snapped" to any side of the Outlook window? If so - which side? If not - does this issue also occur if you plate it in a fixed position?

Best regards,

I also experience the same issue with last plugin when it is snapped to the left side of outlook. Win 7 enterprise, outlook 2007
When it is snapped to the right side it doesn't steal focus but makes impossible to use delete key for removing emails.
When it is not snapped to any side there is no such issue.

Thank you.

we have released a new version of our Outlook plugin in which all issues we've been able to reproduce have been fixed.

Please go to the Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs, uninstall "OutlookTodoist", download the latest version of our plugin from this location: http://todoist.com/outlook and reinstall it.
