I like the changes you've made to the interface. More intuitive, good organization of features access. Thanks! I am, however, having to reopen the search bar many dozens of times each day. The reason for this is that 1) I have hundreds of tasks and I often have to search to find what I'm looking for, and 2) I frequently have to switch to Notes view for other kinds of information. I wish I could open the search bar, and that it would be open even if I went to notes or another view and then came back.
Have you tried using keyboard shortcuts & just pressing f? It will open the search bar & position the cursor so you can just start typing. I use this & then, after clicking elsewhere on the page, press r to refresh the view & clear search.
