Hello, lovely tool, thank you.
Mostly my own inexperience, but it feels like there might be a bug here too? Feedback appreciated.
I created a new list under a new top-level node, say "ABC". My intention was to check items off, then after that was finished, mark everything incomplete for another iteration of the same list. I marked a few items as completed (and not showing).
Then (PEBCAK!) I rearranged the remaining (incomplete) bullets, grouping adjacent items into sub-heads. Ideally, I would have hoped that completed items, even if not visible, would move with their siblings, but in retrospect I understand how this could be fragile, so I would not have been too surprised if they ended up somewhere unplanned under "ABC".
But not only did they not move with their siblings, they disappeared entirely. Eventually I found them in trash under a random test bullet "xyz" that I had deleted last week.
So I restored "xyz" from Trash. It gave a warning that there might be a delay until they showed up, but in fact they showed up back in the outline immediately. "xyz" had somehow inserted itself under "ABC" even though "ABC" hadn't even existed when "xyz" was deleted last week. Then I highlighted them all and pressed Ctrl+O and they disappeared from everywhere with no warning. This was scary. After a few minutes they did reappear in the outline but I had not been expecting the "Restore from trash" delay now, since it looked they had previously been restored.
Overall a confusing UX. Obviously I should have been showing completed before beginning to rearrange, but the following seem inexplicable nontheless:
- Why did the completed items go to trash instead of staying somewhere under "ABC" even if not moving with their siblings?
- When they went to trash, why were they nested under a random bullet "xyz" from last week?
- After they were restored, why did typing Ctrl+O make them disappear again for a few minutes?
