New lines in lists converted to new items

Post by lk »

Hi there,

hopefully the last bug I found today:

Inside of an unordered list in a task, it is possible to create a line break inside of a list item by pressing Shift-Return:
Task_with_list_1.png
However, if I save the task by pressing the "Ok" button and reopen it afterwards, the line breaks are converted into new list items:
Task_with_list_2.png
(I can only reproduce this issue in the "Tasks" module. In the "Notes" module, the Shift-Return feature works as it should!)

(EPIM Pro 8.66.1 Lifetime on Windows 8.1 64 bit)

Hi again,

if you're looking at it: I just noticed in the "Notes" module that Shift-Return only works with unordered and ordered lists, but not with checklists. Of course it would be nice if checklists could use this feature too - sometimes it's more clear to use some newlines/blank lines inside of a checklist.

Hi there,

v9.5.2 (portable Pro version) still shows this bug... has anything happened here in the meantime?

Working fine for us. Please try on a new database, will there be the same problem?

Tried it with a new database and created a new task there.

Before saving the task:

After clicking Ok and doubleclicking on the task:

It looks as if it works for the second line of an item while the third and all following lines get converted into new items.

The Shift-Return key combination also works differently with checklists compared to unordered/ordered lists. The behavour of the latter is more useful IMHO.

Which checklists do you mean? What are unordered/ordered lists? How can we check this out?

Yes, it's exactly this effect I meant.
