    Hi Lee,

    I'm afraid that I have squinted long and hard at both screenshots and I don't understand what you are describing :-(. I don't see any difference except your tags for examples 1-3. Would you give more details, please?

    I used to do something very similar before I started using more "powerpacked" tools :)

    The problem is WorkFlowy doesn't actively update the search as you move or delete stuff.  This is the workaround I used: 
    (If you are offended by "workarounds", you may stop reading now.)

    1. Click the tag to generate the search
    2. Keeping your hand on the mouse, drag the "detail" to be a sibling (not child) of the target.
    3. Still on the mouse... Alt+Click/explode the detail tag.
    4. Hit tab to indent the detail
    5. Hit Esc to clear the search. Done.

    Sorry Frank, I should have been more clear. I've attached a new set of 12 better sized screenshots with comments. I hope you understand what I am talking about this time. Here's the link:

    Hi Lee,

    Thank you for the incredible effort in setting up th storyboard of screenshots and annotating. 

    I think the main issue you have is that you are trying to move items from one place to another by tabbing while in search mode... and the tricky thing about that is that your items are not going where you expect, and ending up instead at the end of a bigger expanded list along with other sibling lists. This is to be expected, since it's a similar behavior when compared to moving lists into other collapsed lists via Tab.You're invading another list, albeit in search mode... and it is force opened. 

    Would you try @rawbytz's suggestion above and see how that goes?

    Thanks for the tips guys. The reason why I asked this question was because I just got a new computer and had been using the old Workflowy Chrome application located here: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/koegeopamaoljbmhnfjbclbocehhgmkm?utm_source=chrome-app-launcher-info-dialog 

    ....but it's since been removed. I had been tabbing with no issue on that application but when I tried setting up my new computer with the official app, my workflow got disrupted due to this.

    I will try the workarounds and to figure out a new way to do things for now but please consider implementing the tab feature in future updates! I have been using Workflowy for many years and hope to continue using it for many more to come.

    Best,

    Lee Holland
