[Fixed] Drag to rearrange is making a copy


#1

On the Linux client, dragging an item to rearrange its order in a view has the following behavior:

  • in Next, it correctly rearranges items and makes a copy of the dragged one just below its new position.
  • Waiting is like Next
  • in Scheduled, it does not move the dragged item but makes a copy at the desired position, except on the very bottom. In that case, the copy is placed just above the bottom of the list.
  • Someday is like Next
  • Focus is like Next

Some details about my system: Ubuntu 16.04, Everdo installed with the package everdo_1.0.6-3_amd64.deb.

Yep this is a know issue waiting to be fixed.
For now when it occurs, try to press Ctrl once or restart the app.


#4

Ok, this is ultra weird:

I start the app. Drag and drop does not copy anymore items and I can rearrange stuffs, except in Scheduled (even for items on the same date).

NOW, I go to another virtual desktop (empty, without any windows), I go back to the desktop where everdo is, and I have the drag-drop-copy behavior described above.

I also tried to change the focus from everdo to other windows (like a terminal, firefox, whatever) on the same virtual desktop, then refocus on everdo but it does not reproduce the bug. Thus, only moving from other virtual desktops seem to trigger this bug.


#5

yes, the scheduled list is sorted by date and any manual ordering is ignored.

Thanks for this report. It should help identify the root cause. For me and a few other users this bug has been occurring randomly with no clear steps to reproduce.


#6

Does your switching the desktops involve the Ctrl key? That would explain it. If that’s the reason, then it will be fixed in the upcoming release.

Thanks for identifying a way to consistenly reproduce it!


#7

Gotcha! I use Ctr+Alt+arrows to switch from one virtual desktop to another.


#8

Fixed in Everdo 1.0.7
