Colon no longer makes a task into a section


A trailing colon no longer makes a task into a section header. This is problematic because:

  1. Copying and pasting sections no longer works. If a section task is copied, it is pasted with a trailing colon but does not become a section header.
  2. Breaks compatibility with external task management. Our firm manages creation of sub-tasks for a variety of items using other tools. Without some wildcard to force creation of section header, we are now left without clearly defined sections.

The new hotkey is useful, but is not a proper replacement for the removed functionality. I’d kindly like to suggest the trailing colon be reinstated, or some other wildcard be added to take its place.
(Copy/paste with some markup system would be very useful for other things, like dates, assignees, etc.)
