Nested Projects don't show up in search

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) ]

Editor searches like

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

will yield that kind of harvest, I think

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.

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

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.

Any update on this topic? I really miss this functionality (for me it’s a bug).
I’ve using the TaskPaper for some projects and I have a lot of task in done. Now, I archived them and guess what: it’s impossible to filter and see the archived tasks per project.

Thanks for reminder. This preview release should address the problem: TaskPaper 3.8.3 Preview (338)
