Perhaps an example of a text and the difference between what you see and what you expect ?
That search looks fine and does seem to work here. For example, if I start with:
- TaskPaper knows about projects, tasks, notes, and tags.
- It auto-formats these items so that your lists are easier to read. @done
- Delete this text when you are ready to start your own lists.
To Create Items:
- To create a task, type a dash followed by a space. @due
- To create a project, type a line ending with a colon.
- To create a tag, type '@' followed by the tag’s name.
To Organize Items:
- To indent items press the Tab key. @important @done(2018-03-13 11)
- To un-indent items press Shift-Tab.
- To mark a task done click leading dash. @important
To Fold, Focus, and Filter Items:
- To fold/unfold an item click the dot to the left of the item.
- To focus on a single project select it in the sidebar. @done(2018-03-13 11)
- To filter your list enter a search in the toolbar search field.
@done and not @important and not @due
leaves me with the following filtered view:
Would you like to show and comment the kind of “before and after” that you have in mind ?
