(hey, I figured out how to actually quote. Sorry about that!)
Ok, let me be more concrete in what I’m saying. One of the included searches is
All Metadata & Tasks @search(//@type = project and \(@status = active or @status = ongoing or @status = hold\)//* and not @done)
And another is
All Tasks @search(//@type = project and \(@status = active or @status = ongoing or @status = hold\)//@type = task and not @done union //@type = task and not @done/*)
I had been working under the assumption that I was getting no results from either because it was trying to return a Project that was also a Task. From what I’m understanding in this conversation, this search actually means “return the results but also return the project name that each result falls under”.
If that is true, I still don’t understand why “All Metadata and Tasks” returns nothing, and “All Tasks” returns only every task in my inbox project, and not any other task at all. And, no other search included in the example searches returns anything at all.
