I've seen this problem several times where I click on the Arrow icon, then select "Permanent Link", and nothing happens. It's doing it again today. I guess it's not a major thing, but I'm trying to do my Weekly Review this morning and some parts of it I can't do, or at least not easily, without using a Permanent Link. I'd really like to see this fixed.
Am using WinXP SP3, Chrome Version 23.0.1271.97 m.
I tried it in IE8, and it worked fine on the first try, but not again.
I closed Chrome completely, then reopened, and the Permanent Link feature worked on the first try, but not again. So with 2 different browsers, I can do one Permanent Link, but no more, until I close and reopen the browser.
I'm having this problem again. I've played with it a bit. I have a Saved Search called "Meetings". Some of my projects are tagged meetings for obvious reasons. This saved search gives me a view of all of them. But something is very strange because one meeting, only one, as far as I can tell, sometimes won't accept a permanent link command. It appears to be an intermittent problem, comes and goes, and I don't know why that would be. All the others work, every time I've tested them. But I have had this happen before, with different ones.
I just went through my Saved Search for Active Projects, essentially the same thing as Meetings except for the special tag. They all do Permanent Link just fine.
Just thought I'd give you some more information on this.
