Task Tree

This is the default (and original) task view where you will probably spend most of your early time with the application. It shows the fundamental parent/subtask structure of your tasklist and is the only view in which you can change these relationships.

Creating Tasks

To create a new task you have the following options:

  • Select one of the 'Menu Bar > New Task' menu commands
  • Click one of the two 'New Task' buttons on the Application Toolbar.
  • Right-click on the Task Tree and select one of the 'New Task/Subtask' context-menu commands.

The process is typically this:

  1. Select an existing task using the mouse or keyboard
  2. Click one of the toolbar buttons to:
    • Create a new task at the same level as the selected task
    • Create a new subtask at a level below the selected task, and 'contained' by the selected task. ie. The selected task becomes its parent.
  3. Edit the new task's title
  4. Press <Enter> or click one of the toolbar buttons to add more tasks

Note: If during the initial editing of the task's title you realise it is in the wrong place, you can either complete the task name as described above and then move the task to its correct location later on. Or you can press <Esc> to cancel the new task and re-create it in the correct place.

Moving tasks

To move one or more pre-selected tasks to a different location (or parent) you have the following options:

  • Select one of the 'Menu Bar > Move > Move Selected Task …' menu commands
    • Move Task Up
      This swaps the task's position with the task immediately above it
    • Move Task Down
      This swaps the task's position with the task immediately below it
    • Move Task Left
      This takes a subtask and makes it a sibling of its current parent
    • Move Task Right
      This makes the task a subtask of the task immediately above it
  • 'Drag and Drop' the selected tasks using only the mouse
  • 'Cut and Paste' the selected tasks using the keyboard and/or mouse (Ctrl+X, Ctrl+V)

Deleting Tasks

To delete one or more tasks just select the tasks and press <Delete>.

Note: Deleting a parent task will delete all of its subtasks.
Note: You can also right-click on the selected tasks and select 'Delete' from the popup menu.
