Visual jarring on completing a task

I'm in a filtered view, so not sure whether this applies in other views.

I've got a task that has subtasks; I'm working with the task 'opened up', as I'm working through the sub-tasks. When I complete a sub-task, there's a double jarring effect:

1. First the item immediately disappears. I think it would be better if it was marked as done, then faded out, then slid down or disappeared.

2. Not long after that, the parent task closes. Arrgh! Now I have to re-open it every time I complete a task.

Hello Neil,

That's the correct behavior, as the task is completed, the server syncs the changes and "updates" the view which causes expanded tasks to collapse. We may consider changing this in the future, if it won't affect syncing.
