Backspacing the texts deletes the task

When you try backspacing a sentence, by the end of it, it deletes the whole task and moves on the previous task.

As a user I won’t be so careful in deleting the text, I would just blindly erase texts. This is bad UX.

Hi @Balaji4,

The tasks are not deleted by only pressing the backspace/delete key.
Would you let us know in which view it happens, and check if you are entering Tab at the same time?

As far as I can think of, the only exception is when you press backspace in the task title when the task title is empty.

Hi @Shun_Sakurai … Thanks for the response.

What I am talking about is, when I create a task and then want to erase the title fully by pressing backspace, at the end of clearing the last character it deletes the task as well. After that, it moves on to the previous one.

I wasn’t pressing tab.

It’s basically that you press “return” to create new task, same way it goes to previous task by pressing “backspace”

It doesn’t delete the task when you delete the last letter, it does if you hit backspace again. To me that’s not bad UX, that’s actually quite useful :sweat_smile:


Thank you @Balaji4 for clarifying that it’s about pressing the backspace in a blank task title :bulb:
In that case, I think it’s safer and easier to change how you clear the task titles.

For example:

  • We can select all text with Ctrl/Cmd+A and press Backspace/Delete once to clear it.
  • On a Mac, Cmd+Delete clears the text from the cursor to the beginning of the line.
  • On a Windows, we can select one whole line with Shift+↑ or Shift+Home and press Backspace/Delete once to clear it.

I hope one of these can help.

No worries. I mean, I think the problem is not about how to use it, perhaps I am just trying to give you how the UX can be better.

Ofcourse it works, but I believe UX can be better.

I understand and I would expect the same. :slight_smile: But in reality on practical usage, I have accidentally messed up a few tasks because this functionality, so far(maybe I will get used to it?). thats why I consider it as bad UX. it’s subjective, if you happen to see this from enough people, perhaps we will have evidence to say its bad UX. for now I am ok to be considered as one of the user feedback.

Maybe, you are right, I may get used to it :slight_smile:

Thank you, all ideas and feedback are welcome in the forum :slight_smile:
UX design decisions are often tradeoffs and there’s no “perfect UX for everyone”.
