Changing parent-task priority without affecting its child-tasks

L

In the past, it was possible to change the priority of a task without affecting the priority of its children.

I believe it was possible by holding the alt or ctrl key.

Unfortunately, this functionality is broken with the new changes.

Is there any way to do that?

Hello Lior,

in order to change the priority of a single parent task without affecting its children, simply left-click on the task name to open the input box and type !p1, !p2, !p3 or !p4 within the task name.

I will pass your question to the developers, though, and will let you know if this is a deprecated feature or a glitch.


Best regards,
David

Lior,

this feature is indeed no longer available and has been deprecated. Therefore, in order to change a single parent task's priority, please use the method described earlier (edit and add !p1...etc.).


Best regards,
David

Thank David, this method works but it's quite a hassle
Clicking then hitting 6 keys seems too much for a simple and common task like changing parent priority.

That's too bad.

Any chance this important shift+priority functionality would be restored? I'm pretty sure it's only a 5 minutes fix.
