If the list is sorted by priority which may do several users and you change the priority the task automatically jumps to the new position. TDL keeps the task selected and so you automatically scroll some pages.
As you may did not want to work on this task anymore and just give him a new priority TDL could select the task above the priorized task without following the priorized one. Maybe this behaviour could be optional.
BTW renaming icons still don´t work. After closing the "Select Task Icon"-Window the new names get sorted alphabetically but not the icons which of course leads to wrong names.
I am not sure that is necessary.
The stylesheets still seems to run fine, unless it contains v2 functions, at which point it fails. There are one or two stylesheets that you distribute that have the version 2.0 header, so you wouldn't want to break them (e.g. Time_Spent_eng.xsl).
It was just confusing for me not being able to get the functions going, while it seems to accept the v2 header... Now that I know, and understand what is possible, its fine.
For what it is worth, the header contains xsl:stylesheet version="2.0" rather than xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" (amongst other things of course).
In the Inheritable Attributes section of the options, there's the checkbox "Continue to update subtasks as parent changes". I set Category to be inheritable and then selected this option. Next, I created a task, and then created several subtasks. I then assigned a category to the parent task. In the tasklist, the category appeared in the Category column, but only for the parent task. I clicked on each subtask and saw in the edit field that the category has been assigned to them. However, the Category column was blank for those tasks in the tasklist. There was no way to cause the category to appear in the Category column, outside of closing and restarting TDL.
I think you may be right. End of year is crazier than ever.
This is in regard to a recent request that got me thinking. To do with the Sticky notes thing.
I found a great sticky note programme called 'Stickies' (freeware), which has a API that allows commands to be sent to it. I am just wondering whether an AHK script can pull out the title of the selected task and directly create a new sticky label on screen. Seems feasible.
Something I may play around with over the Christmas break, along with finishing the stylesheets I am half way through.
PS, any progress on determining the version of xsl TDL references? Can it handle xsl v2.0?
Thanks for the confirmation. It confirms what I already suspected, and saves me from further trying to work out what I'm doing wrong...
It just means that doing some things with dates in stylesheets won't be possible (as far as I know). Such as colouring tasks based on their due dates etc...
Wasn't really intending to give you more work. I will probably still have a play if I have time.
My thought was to export the name of a task to create a sticky. Then deal with any reminders etc in the Sticky program if necessary. My main thought though was to be able to create a 'Do Today' list that can live in the corner of the screen. The AHK code I found seems to allow the serial pasting of text into a single sticky, which would allow the creation of a short list.
I see you are looking at a much more integrated solution.
Thanks Jochen. I will see what is possible over Christmas, once the rush to the end of the year is over.
I was wondering whether I could do an F2 key press, then copy the resulting selected task title as an initial look-see, but that would be very ugly and would only work when a single task is selected. Other methodolgies would probably be much better.
The links on the thread you sent no longer seem to work (the ahk script anyway - the exe I can't get to at work because of IT policy). Will try at home later. Can exes be decompiled by AHK? Haven't played with that before.
[Edit]: The exe is no longer available either. You couldn't possibly email me copy of you have one could you?
Having just discovered that I can hide the task details pane, I like to suggest that it would be very handy to be able to edit all the task attributes that are shown in the task tree / task list directly there. As in Excel: Just click on any field in a column (e.g. Due date) and get the same editing widget as in the task details pane. Just as it works already for some attributes (task name, completed flag, flagged flag).
