Project folder won't stay closed


I have two main folders of projects, active and inactive/archived, but the inactive set won't seem to stay collapsed if I have the active folder open as well. It will happily stay collapsed when both are, but opening the active folder results in the inactive folder popping open after a second or two. Created a 'test' folder to see if it was limited to the inactive folder, but same thing happened.

Hi Ben,

Please clarify, you are using the web version (which browser?) and you are wanting archived projects to say collapsed? Can I ask why you have archived projects being left shown, as these are meant to be hidden, like completed projects.

Though, you are saying you are having trouble with active project as well?

Hi Brendon,

I'm using the web version of Todoist on Chrome.

Re: the archived projects; bad choice of words on my behalf. It's just another folder for projects that i'm not working on right now, but I still like to to have easy access to, to add ideas or potential tasks, rather than the 'archived projects' section.

Hello Ben,

Thank you for your report, we'll look into it, but please let us know how exactly does the project structure look like and at what point do the sub-projects expand? Does it look like this:

| - sub-project
| - | - sub-sub-project
| - | - sub-sub-project
| - | - sub-sub-project

or different?

Best regards,

Hi David,

Thanks for your message. Yep your picture is accurate, but i'm happy to report that everything is working perfectly again now, so thanks for whatever you did.

Mine did this off and on, here's a screenshot of the folder in question: http://chir.me/lpHv

As soon as I moved this project list in question to a different spot in my projects order and then back, it fixed it.
