What I did:
- Opened a project I hadn’t looked at for a while by clicking a link to the project itself from Omnifocus.
What I expected:
- To see the newer of the two notes in the project first.
- The older of the two notes appeared first instead of second. I changed it to earliest first, and the older moved to the bottom. I changed it back and the older one went to the top.
What I did next:
- Created a note with today’s date.
What I expected then:
- That I’d have three notes sorted properly somehow?
What happened then:
- I now have three notes in this project appearing in this order:
- Testing sort — Apr 13, 2019
- Older notes — Nov 28, 2018
- Restocking for trip — Jan 29, 2019
- If I click on the project name at the top, they are in the same order and at the bottom, it says, “Sort with earliest date first”, indicating the earliest note should be last.
Things that might be helpful to know (Agenda version, OS and model, etc):
- Agenda v 5.2
- MacOS v 10.14.4
I tried to check if the November 28 note was pinned to the top, but it doesn’t seem to be, plus the new one dated today wouldn’t be first, if it were. I did pin it to the top and unpin it which had the expected result — the pinned note went to the top and then back to its previous (incorrect) position.
I tried clicking on another project and coming back to this one but that didn’t make any difference.
I assume this is a fluke of some kind and nearly impossible to reproduce. I suspect there is something about the November 28 note that’s messing it up. It contains text pasted in from an Omnifocus note, but I have other notes I created that way that are staying at the bottom as the earliest in their projects.
If you want me to private message it to you, let me know. I exported it as an agenda file since I’m going to be editing it since I need Today’s note to have the current information.
