Sub tasks not automatically shown
I have been using toodledo for a while and decided to check out the Pro mode to see if I should upgrade. The key function for me is the subtasks. However, they are not working as I would expect sub-tasks to do so, and hence the question.
When I define a task and a set of sub-tasks they appear indented and in the right order, for example:
...........1. Investigate sub tasks
...........2. Ask question in forum if necessary
(sorry about the dots, but this text editor does not let me adds spaces)
This would be an example of a tast defined in a folder (Projects). However, if I change to another view and then go back to Folder -> Project they are not indented or ordered correctly:
2. Ask question in forum if necessary
1. Investigate sub tasks
So I have to click on each task to get an indented ordered list of tasks and sub-tasks. This does not seem to make a lot of sense. Am I doing something wrong?
I saw a post that talked about a script in greasemonkey to automatically display tasks and sub-tasks ordered, but it only works in Firefox and I am using Safari.
I have got around the problem by using Goals and setting a list of 1 - 5 goals (like an ordering). Hence I can define sub-tasks by the goal number and set the display mode to use Goal and hence I see all my tasks in the correct order.

At the top of your list, in the toolbar, there is a link labeled "Subtasks: Indented". If you click this, it will always load your lists with subtasks indented as you want.
Magic. Thanks, just what I wanted. Time to switch to pro...
