these were missing from the TDL file
I have inheritance turned on for:
And the checkbox for "Continue to update subtasks as parent changes" is CHECKED. However, the Due Date, Status & Category for the tasks disappeared all at the same time AND the cursor was not on the the parent task when it happened so I don't believe it is something I did by accident (twice) - but I can't be 100% sure. Let me know if you find anything. Thanks! -Steve-
I like this program very much, but very often, when I mark a subtask ask being complete, all the tasks above it disappear from the screen! Then I have to do a collapse-all and expand-all to get everything back on the screen. Another way to get everything back on the screen is to use the up arrow. Is there any way to not have that stuff disappear? Thanks!
An active filter might explain that the "tasks above it disappear from the screen" and that they reappear when Member 9172785 uses the arrow up key.
There where several posts in the last months that dealt with little problems with the view and the necessity of the use of the arrow key to solve that. I can't recall them all but I think this little problem started with the filter option w) and showed up in different situations.
It probably does not happen when there is no filter, but I usually use at least one filter due to having a large number of tasks. It is happening right now when I show "Tasks Due by Today" and have 5 things checked under the Status filter, but that is not the only filter combination where this happens. While testing, I just noticed that UNDO (Ctrl+Z) can also make this same thing happen, and upon further examination, it's not only the tasks above the one I'm checking off that disappear, but some below too! I will try to examine what is happening more carefully as I use ToDoList to see if I can identify any more clues or patterns when this happens. One more thing (if it matters) is that I have some top-level tasks like "Daily Tasks", "Weekly Tasks", etc. that contain my actual tasks, so all of the tasks that I check off are actually sub-tasks of these
It IS fixed (in the 6.6DR version)! Tasks are no longer disappearing when I mark a task as complete. They are also NO LONGER disapearing when I do undo or change filter settings. This is MUCH better. Thanks for the quick fix for this issue! -Steve-
Could we have a little more control over the modified date field? I often find that owing to my poor typing skills I have to edit tasks in order to correct typing errors. This is recorded in the modified date field, but for me such actions are not significant modifications meriting recording in this way.
So, would it be possible to allow the user some leeway in changing the modified date field for any edits?
First: Thanks for the great Author Dan. i just downloaded yesterday this wonderful program, and It's amazing how outstanding and superior this program is, much much more than many other "costly" programs that i tried in the last few months. simple and neat, flexible, beautiful and perfect design, great features to the need, excellent functions, and it seems to go forward with much more.
one of the suggestions that i have for the next update of this program, that in the preferences at the settings for colors based on 'due date' 'category' 'completed task' and others, should also have all other formatting options to chose for each criteria, as font, font size, bold, underline ETC. this will b great when someone wants to define different formatting for a few conditions of tasks in the task list at once.
I ran the test on my Gateway DX-4320 (AMD with 4 CPUs and 6GB ram) and it took 32 seconds under Windows 8 with TDL 6.5.10.
I ran the same PC using Remote Desktop Connection from my iMac and it took about 2Min. and 15 sec.
Also, I Ran the test under Parallels on my iMac running Windows 7 with TDL 6.5.10 and it took about 2Min and 17 sec. My iMac is a 2011 model with I5 processor and 8GB ram with 4GB dedicated to Parallels.
Old laptop - Intel Pentium M 1600Hz, 1.5GB RAM running Win XP SP3
TDL 6.5.5: 25 sec and 1m12sec
TDL 6.5.10: 25 sec and 1m12sec
TDL 6.6d2: 30 sec and 1m11sec
Where the first value is the TDL window at ~a quarter of the screen and the second value is with the TDL window maximised. In both options the CPU gets close to maximum when the arrow down key is pushed down. When the key isn't depressed, the CPU is at about 4%.
For what it worth, the screen is 1680x1050.
[EDIT] Work laptop Lattitude E5420 x86 Family 6 - 2500MHz, 4MB RAM, WinXP SP3, 1366 x 768 screen
TDL 6.1: 23 sec and 36 sec
TDL 6.5.5 26 sec and 36 sec
Again where the first number is when the TDL window is ~ 1/4 of the screen, and the second number when it is maximised. CPU runs at ~30% when scrolling.
I followed zajchapp's lead with different window sizes which obviously does make a big difference.
1) W7/64 i7-2600 @ 3.40 GHz 16GB RAM AMD Radeon HD 6800 using TDL 6.5.10 on 1920 x 1200 screen
At half the screen height: 23s; at full size: 37s with CPU topping at 12% for TDL in both cases (no other activity) and that proves this might be more of a graphics card test, right?!
2) Vista/64 Q9300 @ 2.50 GHz 4GB RAM GeForce 9600 GS using TDL 6.1.10 on 1800 x 1440 screen
At half the screen heigth: 36s; at full size: 56s with CPU topping at 25% for TDL.
It becomes 66s if I remove my comment area (where screen repaint would be needed for a longer task title field) whereas the 56s were with a comment area of about 1/3 of the 1800 pixel screen width. Same CPU usage.
Are the hardware specs 'high level' enough? Or do you need more detail?
My question to you: do you want/need response times from virtual machines? Because performance of those can be influenced by even more 'environmental' settings.
I'm using find task filters (with relative date functionality), and it is very great.
But as you know, when you use the find task filter, and 'apply as filter' command, all other filter fields are disabled.
And it is a problem for me, especially because, after I would use the 'Title' filter, in order to reduce the list filtered, but it is not possible.
I could improve my find task filter by adding a title filter, but my filter is too complex, and it is not working.
So for now, I have a big problem in order to filter my tasks...
Would it be possible to enable other filter fields, or at least the title field, which is a very important filter fields ?
or at least the title field, which is a very important filter fields ?
I will give it some thought.
The tricky bit is that the 'extra' title filter has to be 'AND-ed' with the Find Tasks filter and this is not trivial. However, if I were to make this a two stage process (internally): First filter by Find Tasks search, and then filter the results by title, this might keep it simple.
my filter is too complex, and it is not working
Perhaps if you share this with me we can figure out what's not working...
1- I use the find task filter in order to select my active tasks - OK
2- Based on the filtered result, I want to reduce the result and focus on a specific part of the tree (and its subtree), based on the title of parent tasks.
So for example I want to reduce the filtered tree with just the first parent tasks and its subtree.
This is not possible to do this in a single step, in one find task filter.
And I would want to use the title filter in order to search for the first parent tasks AND show all subtasks. But I realize there is another easy way (not possible for the moment) : Be able to select manually one or several parent tasks (of the filtered result), and use the "selected tasks" filter ! According to me the 'Selected tasks' filter should be a specific filter, not in the 'Show' combobox, in order to focus on specific tasks or parent tasks (and its subtree), for reporting purposes for example. And same remark coud be done for the filter 'Flagged tasks'...
So by improving the way to use the selected task filter, you would provide a way to do a 2-stage filter, for find task filter, but also for standard 'show' combobox filter.
is it possible to have multi user names on a file, and each user who open a file should have to enter his user name and own password?
also i should have a column where it should been "automatically" entered which user created this task, and a column which i can see which user last modified this task?
I recently updated after a long time to the current version (BTW: Several cool new features, many thanks for your ongoing development effort!)
When I open tdl://C:\mypath\ToDo.tdl?1751 TDL comes to foreground, but it doesn't open the task list / change the selected task to the passed task (e.g.1751) anymore. Thus, the links generated by flat_sorted_todolist.xsl does not work anymore.
Any idea what happened? Can you reproduce this? (Maybe I missed a new option ...? I checked the option that tdl:// is supported.)
Hello.I am working in machine building industrial.I am using to do list and i think it is great .
Simple and clever .But for my opinion it should be fev more option in this softwear.
1.Internal email client where you can connectet task with the email.
3.Own column name should be show on the raport
4.I am Polish then i waiting on polish langue.
I am not programist then i can not help.:/
I am waitng for future version .Thank you for such amazing softwear
Sorting of the column 'category' by numbers seems to work only for numbers up to 5 digits. Now I've entered a 6 digits number (100020) and it is sorted below 87482. All numbers below 100000 are sorted correctly.
I haven't tested other fields. If they follow the same logic, they might be sorted wrong, too.
