Nested Projects don't show up in search


#1

I’ve selected Taskpaper’s option to Add @project tag when archiving @done tasks. But if the archived task belongs to a nested project, clicking on that @project tag will produce a search with no matches.


[ TaskPaper 3.7.5 Preview (305) ]


#2

Editor searches like

@project = "Project / Sub-project"
@project = "Project"

will yield that kind of harvest, I think


#3

I’ve tried using quotes, as you suggested, and it worked.

Why doesn’t the automatically generated search do this? It’s kind of awkward to get zero results when you’ve just clicked a matching task.


#4

A question for Jesse, I think. Perhaps something to do with the spaces flanking the ‘/’ ?


#5

I think this is just something I haven’t got to yet… most of the time tag values are simple and don’t contain any search syntax, but in this case the / is messing things up. I’ll add this to my todo list.
