When I do a search or I click a tag to do a search I can no longer expand items found in that search. The little plus item is missing. This has really screwed up my writing workflow. When I write I create an outline with headers that have scene, chapter or act tags. I generally like to write with everything expanded so I can just scroll through my book or screenplay like normal, reading and writing as I go. But I use the tags to bring me back to my outline so I can navigate to different parts of my story.
The way it used to work was I would be writing on my expanded story like normal but then decide to change to a different scene. I would click on a scene tag or simply search for the tag. That would instantly allow me to see the outline of my story with the title of every scene. I could then expand a scene title, place my cursor inside and then hit the escape key to end the search. I would now be navigated to that scene inside my completely expanded story. It was a brilliant solution to writing within Workflowy. It allowed me to have a simple minimalistic single panel interface for a distraction free writing experience but with a simple search or click on a tag I could see my outline and navigate to any part of the document easily.
Please, please bring this feature back. I'm hoping its just a bug and not a feature change. Workflowy is the best tool for writers ever created. This bug or feature change has ruined one of the primary reasons Workflowy was so incredible.
