Asterisk moves on task edit, recreating checkbox

Because labels always float to the front of a task's name when you edit it, the asterisk also moves behind them, so when you save the task it returns the checkbox and puts the asterisk in the name of the task.

Here's a video showing it: http://chir.me/1g0MHUW

I remember reading somewhere that the asterisk is not going to be officially supported -- is this true? It's a very useful feature and one I'd be very sad to see go.

Hi Devon,

It is true that it's not fully supported anymore. Make sure to push the Asterisk back the front after editing.

That's really a pity the * asterisk feature is not supported anymore.
That was a great way to separate tasks from headings that shouldn't have checkboxes (for organisation purposes).
I hope it will come back soon.
