Bug with context menu for new tasks (OF4)

When I add a new item to the inbox I cannot evoke the context menu, unless I leave the perspective and come back. Leaving the perspective seems to trigger something that activates the context menu.

Can you provide a video showing this as I can’t recreate this behaviour with what I think you’re doing.

I tried it on my iPad and I see it too:

  • add action to inbox
  • tap anywhere outside of the action
  • a long press on the action does nothing
  • change perspective
  • go back to Inbox
  • long press on action works (gives context menu)

Have you notified support?

What can‘t be screenrecorded: Around 0:10 I am unsuccessfully trying to long press the task to evoke the context menu. After I briefly switch to the review perspective it works.


I hoped they see this. Should I email as well?

Yes, I am not sure support is watching this forum regularly.
