Feature Request: Horizontal Divders


#1

In the previous version of TaskPaper, we were able to add horizontal dividing lines to the styling of top level tasks. Any chance we could get this feature back? I have looong lists, and the visual break-up helped immensely.

Thanks much for considering!


#2

I do expect to add more styling options (including horizontal dividers) eventually. Not sure when, but it’s on my list.


#3

Horizontal dividers were such a small thing, but something I used all of the time. They would really be helpful once implemented.


#4

I used an empty project as a divider for a while:

Give that a shot.

Chad, I just tried it and while it may not be as good as a divider, it does work pretty well! Thanks for the tip. That’s thinking outside the box.


#6

Coming back every few months to bump this. :slight_smile:
I have the old TaskPaper on my home Mac, and it looks so much cleaner with dividers.
A small thing, but would make us OCD types happy! :wink:

Thanks!

A makeshift solution for this is to use a unique “divider” tag with custom styling.

With this @break tag:

Applying this custom styling:

item[data-break] {
  color: @background-color;
  > run[content] {
    text-strikethrough: NSUnderlineStyleThick;
    text-strikethrough-color: lightgray;
  }
  > run[link^="button"] {
    color: @background-color;
  }
  > run[tag] {
    color: @background-color;
    text-strikethrough: NSUnderlineStyleThick;
    text-strikethrough-color: lightgray;
  }
}

Gives you this:

The tag is still there, you can see it when you highlight the line. With this styling, any other text on the line will also turn into a gray line, so you can make it as wide as you want:
