[Fixed] Focus list resorts on delete


#1

I thought I spotted this before but wasn’t sure. Now I took some screenshots for myself and this is definitely happening.

I’ll be cleaning my Focus list, deleting items, often starting from the bottom.

As I delete items, the list changes after each delete.

Let’s say there are 5 items:

  • item 1
  • item 2
  • item 3
  • item 4
  • item 5

I delete item 5. The list changes:

  • item 3
  • item 1
  • item 2
  • item 4

On more than one occasion this has caused me to delete an item I didn’t intend to delete; it’s just that one expect that if you want to delete the last 2 items, these items themselves don’t suddenly change content/position


#2

I noticed this as well. Probably caused by repeating items not having an explicit position in the list, which makes them drift randomly.
The temporary workaround is is to reorder one of the items in the focus list, so that every item gets a fixed position.


#3

Smart workaround.

I sort of assumed one of the sort orders would be based on date-time. Not sure if tasks use a “created” date-time, but that could be a good (secondary) sort to keep things in place?


#4

Yes, I think it’s supposed to work exactly like this, but something is broken.


#5

This should probably be fixed by now, as far as testing could tell. Otherwise please PM me.
