Dragging an item into a particular project

There is a bug or at least strange behavior when a task is dragged from the list to project on the side panel.
When we drag an item and move it over the project list then the currently selected project has a green border. It is ok when we want to drop an item on a particular project. The problem occurs when we want to resign. When we catch the project it is very hard to not drop it there. It is easy to move an item into a project by mistake
Please look at the screenshot and where is my cursor and the project is still caught. I wanted to resign from dropping “New Item”.

I also have this issue! I wanted to reorder the tasks within a project and the item landed somewhere else and i had o search it…

This is probably how it has been working since version 0.0.1, but I agree it’s not the best behavior.
Thank you for reporting!

totally! is it possible to change copy / cut & paste from current mouse dragging to keyboard shortcut, like ctrl+c / ctrl+x & ctrl+v?
this probably could be better especially when there is multi-actions to copy / cut.

This is an interesting idea. Though I think, copy, cut and paste usually imply no changes to the content being moved. This is not possible to achieve in Everdo, because not every class of items can exist in every list. So “copy>paste” becomes really “copy > coerce into new class > paste”.

Also the current drag and drop between lists is different for each specific list. For example dragging an item from anywhere to Focus will only set the Focus flag and not change the actual list of the item. How would that work with copy/cut/paste? Tag-based lists are like this as well. In other words, many current drag actions will simply do nothing in many cases where doing nothing makes sense, but I would expect Ctrl+c/Ctrl-v to do something every time.
