In both the Mac and iOS clients I keep seeing counts that are screwy under various tags.
For example, I have a tag which is my spouse’s name for holding things I need to discuss with her. At this moment, it says “[name] 9 items” on my Mac, but when I expand the list – even with All selected – I see only 7 things. And only 4 of them remain to be done; the others are complete. If I change to Remaining, it says “6 remaining”, but only shows the 4 which (correctly) are remaining.
In iOS, I see the exact same lists and same (wrong) counts.
Is there some preference/option I may have selected which is leading me astray here?
Thanks, deaghean’s answer was the key. But to answer you, I was using the Tags perspective, and regardless of the option I chose (first available, etc.) it seemed to be wrong. It was wrong because I was excluding projects.
