Todoist tab blocking "more" features in new compost window

When opening a new compose window from clicking on an email link in chrome, the Todoist tab also opens, but its right above the "more options" link at the bottom right of the compose tab. So every time I want to send an email, I also have to then close the todoist tab as well. Might be good to have an option to not have the tab show up in this view?

Hi Ross,

The Todoist tab will not open unless you click on the Add To Todoist button at the top menu. If the Todoist tab is minimized or closed, and I compose a new email, nothing happens.

Do you have the entire Todoist tab open when clicking the compose button? Even then it moves 100% out of the way of the compose window. Please try clearing the cache for Chrome and trying again.

Do you have any other Gmail extensions installed?

I've got a todoist tab (or window) at the bottom of my gmail screen at all times. When I click on an email link on a website to send an email, gmail opens a new tab for the email, and that todoist tab shows up there as well. I have a couple of gmail extensions - streak and active inbox being the main ones.

Even if I open a new window to create an email, Todoist does not block any of the menu items. Please try disabling all extensions, and see if it continues.
