UPDATE: I see a functional equivalent may be included in the current preview release. So, Thanks! (But leaving my original request here as justification.)
Dusting this off to plead for some sort of “select current line only (ignoring hidden text)”-- perhaps “alt-double-click” or something user-configurable?
A common use case is “Filter on a tag to look for duplicates, find a duplicate, & delete it.” But selecting a single task from a tag-filtered list is an infuriating exercise in fine-grain mousing – especially if your task is bracketed by tags. For example:
- @household Do that same chore you already have a task for 3 lines above here. @weekend
Imagine trying to delete that task. Like me, you may end up accidentally deleting tons of tasks after simply triple-clicking to select the entire task, and deleting it (thereby removing hidden tasks below it). Double-clicking then dragging to select the whole task doesn’t help, since the task’s endpoints have clicks mapped to actions.
I’ll add that a “paragraph” has less constructive meaning within a task-centric tool like Taskpaper. I’m hard-pressed to think of when I’d want to “select a paragraph” within what is essentially a filtered list. Even if those scenarios exist, their “single task” brethren deserve equal respect.
