Hi Cristos,

I'm not able to reproduce this. Which browser or app client are you using? Does this occur in all projects?

Hi Brendon,

It's happening in Firefox and Chrome on OSX 10.9 and 10.6. Here's a screencast: http://screencast.com/t/4b6uqlHwglW

Hello Christos,

This option deletes task that are completed and not on your list anymore. In the screencast, you've shown sub-tasks that are still on the list - they won't be deleted with this function, it only deletes the tasks that you can access when you click on the circular icon at the bottom of your list.

That said, to delete a completed sub-task from the list, you can either hold SHIFT while checking it off or, not that it already is completed, right-click on it and choose "Move to history".

Best regards,
