Easy way to add subtasks?

I've searched this question before posting, and it seems to mention that when I right-click on a task, I'm given an option to create a subtask... but I don't see that option

Something I'm missing?

Ah, I can only do it when I haven't created a filter on a task. Hrm.

Hello Jon,

Indeed, if you're viewing your tasks from a search result page (label, date-based), it's not possible to create sub-tasks from there as tasks on such search results are not shown with their original structure and include tasks from many different projects so it would be unclear unclear where and under what task would you like the sub-task to be.

Therefore, to create task structures with sub-tasks, please enter a project and then you can right-click on a task, choose "Add task below" and use either Ctrl+RightArrow or the arrow icons on the right side of the input field to indent it.

Best regards,

fools! (-1) Design the todoist website better to make it easier to add subtasks. I had to google how to add subtasks on todoist before i made my subtasks.
