[Fixed] Dragging an item into a particular project

I am seeing a problem specifically when re-arranging tasks via drag-and-drop.

If during drag-and-drop my mouse stays within the task list area, all is good.

If, while dragging and dropping an item, I move outside the task area, for example in the left side-panel, even by a single pixel, then I can no longer drop my item between other tasks. I have to let it go, and then drag it again, carefully ensuring I don’t move outside of the confines of that panel.

This is annoying, because:

  • The handle is very close to the panel limits. It’s easy to move just a few pixels to the left, and invalidate my dragging and dropping
  • When I have to re-arrange a tasks, I usually have to scroll all the way up or down. It’s easy for the mouse to move far away when doing these kind of broad movements.

I can consistently reproduce it on my client(MacOS 10.14.6 / EverDo 1.2.17). Let me know if you want me to produce a screen capture of it.

Thank you in advance.

Hello Andrei, was it solved or not? I can still reproduce it in version 1.2.18. thanks

Yes, it is better but still possible to reproduce it.

Ok thanks for info. Hopeffuly next version will solve it😉.

I thought it was fixed. Probably didn’t get all the cases. Thanks.

I’m having a hard time reproducing this issue again. Could you please outline the required steps ?

When I slowly move an item to the project list, catch a green border (on a particular project) and slowly move back to the list then it works correctly - item stays as it was. But when I move an item around the side panel many times (changing the potential drop place) then it always goes somewhere - even if I move back to the list.
When I tried to reproduce this I got errors that I sent within the app.

It is hard for me to describe this in English. My apologies.

Yes I have the same experience.

I’m trying to do what you describe, but it seems to work fine.

Is it possible that you are actually dropping the item at some time while hovering over the navigation section? Are you using a mouse? If so, could you try using a touchpad to drag an item and see if anything is different?

I use only the touchpad but plugged a mouse and experienced the same issue.
How do you create this animation? Maybe I can create my own which could help you figure out what causes that behaviour?

I use https://github.com/phw/peek to record gifs.

Unfortunately, it is only for Linux.
I have recorded my screen as a movie.

Very often during these “exercises”, I get errors that I sent within the app.

This is very helpful, thank you!

Hi Andrei,
another video from me. Same situation like Mateusz.

I found that it works well without errors in version 1.2.15. I will stay in this version until no prob ver.

Thank you all. So far the only condition where I could make this issue occur is when I drag an item to the sidebar, but then try to return it to a different list in the main view. Then the dropzone in the sidebar gets “stuck” and the item gets dropped there. But if I return the item to the original list, it always works.

There is still some issue with dragging and dropping. (this also causes the error message)

Yes, it’s better but it’s still there

I get that exact same dragging-and-dropping issue every single day. Reordering tasks only seems to work ~50% of the time for me. Also, even when it works, dragging-and-dropping just looks much better in Andrei’s gif than for you or me. (Actions being dragged stay opaque for him, but ours turn transparent.) Not sure if it’s because I use Windows 7.

I will do additional testing on Windows, maybe it is indeed related.
