I was reviewing setting up a search using boolean logic with TaskPaper. An old thread I had included a link to TaskPaper Wiki which seems to not be working, here.
What I was wondering was, is it possible to set up a boolean search within a level? Maybe it’s too early, the coffee hasn’t kicked in yet, but my brain is not seeing how to do this yet.
Example: I have a task list. The items I am working on have the tag @focus. Under that level, I have a sub list of things that still need to be done before I can consider that task as complete. The tags for things I still need to work on is @progress. I also have a list mixed in at that level of steps I have already taken care of. I was calling those things @done.
The point of this is to save a search in the sidebar that when clicked shows me all my projects with progress still needed. This is already done by searching for @needed as they are only used for items in such a list so the hierarchy already shows nicely. I suppose I could change done to @st for steps taken which would again only be used for that purpose.
When I say I want to do this within a level, what I am asking is, can I do this by saying, if an item has the tag @focus then I want to see all tags under that with @done or @progress. Still trying to get my first cuppa to kick in so perhaps I am missing the obvious here. Tried “(@progress and @done) or @progress” but of course each parameter in this way only applies to each line and does not affect the hierarchy (within the level of the group) as far as I know.
