    Can you tell us more about what device/platform/OS you are seeing this happen on?

    Thanks.

    I get this frequently in Google Chrome on Windows.

    I've seen this on both Chrome and Firefox on a Mac running OS X Yosemite.

    This happens to me all the time (on iphone app, Chrome desktop Mac and PC). It's very frightening. I've had to resort to copying the list and pasting below the item I want to nest under.

    On some rare occasions, with extremely tiny lists, I've seen that the nested list I'm trying to move to a new location does appear correctly after a nail-biting several seconds. I haven't mustered the courage to move large lists in fear of losing them. (Experience is especially terrible on iphone where the problem is compounded with lists getting randomly shuffled when you try and move them.)

    Perhaps some UI indication that the move is still in progress will help. Currently, with no feedback from the system, this is one big blemish on an otherwise outstanding app.

    I saw a similar issue frequently in Chromium/Ubuntu. The expand '+' would disappear. I saw the same bug in Chrome/Windows too, but very infrequently.  I was never concerned with data loss because the bullet halo was still there and using the keyboard shortcuts (Ctrl+Space or Ctrl+Down) still worked to expand the bullet with cursor focus.  I've since retired the Ubuntu machine and haven't seen it since.

    For me, the fix was pretty easy. I just clicked to the left of the main WF page (to remove cursor focus) and then clicked back in the outline and the arrow would appear 100% of the time.  ymmv.
