Questions about Outliner

bec 5 years ago updated by Aymeric (Founder) 4 years ago 5
After more or less figuring out how to use this, I decided it would be a helpful way of organising / visualising longer-term 'projects' and the relationship between tasks, and put a bit of effort into setting them up. However I've encountered a few problems:

* Is there any way to drag a node up or down in the list? If I make a mistake the only way I can work out to fix it is to cut the text, create a new node and paste it.

* When I convert a node to a task, it automatically gets sent to 'today' in my planner and I then have to edit it to put it in the right place (usually a parking lot list). However, doing so completely stuffs up my Outliner arrangement - tasks appear under different parent nodes, child nodes became parents etc. Any idea why? And given the inability to drag to reorder nodes, it's too laborious to fix it all up again.

* When I create a task in Outliner, and then open it in the Planner, there is a whole lot of extraneous info in the task title which I presume is related to the Outliner hierarchy but makes it REALLY messy eg. "<span style="font-size: 16px; line-height: 21.6000003814697px; background-color: rgb(238, 247, 254);" rel="font-size: 16px; line-height: 21.6000003814697px; background-color: rgb(238, 247, 254);" rel="font-size: 16px; line-height: 21.6000003814697px; background-color: rgb(238, 247, 254);">" Any way to avoid this??

It would also be helpful if there was some way to send existing tasks (in Planner) to the Outliner to be incorporated into its structure. Not sure if this is possible?
App:
Agree with what has been listed.

It would be great to get a little tutorial with some tips what to use this tool for,
Ich wünsche mir auch so ein tutorial.

The outliner is still rough around the edges :)

1."Is there any way to drag a node up or down in the list?"
No way to reorder by dragging at the moment, but we will implement soon.

2. "However, doing so completely stuffs up my Outliner arrangement"
We are going to fix that as soon as possible. Thanks for reporting.


3. "but makes it REALLY messy eg"
Wow, that's another issue, we will work on it. Thanks for reporting.

4. "Not sure if this is possible?"
Not possible yet. Not a feature I am planning to implement in the near future unfortunately.
I have published an introduction to the Outliner:
