Todo.txt for Chrome – v. 2016.1123.2.19

  • Bug Fix: Filtering not working for some users. This was due to a code bug that triggered only when specific non-English characters are used.
  • Other bug fixes:
    • Corrected direction for keyboard shortcuts ‘j’ and ‘k’, to ‘down’ and ‘up’, respectively,
    • Ensured first & last task are fully visible when scrolling by keyboard – they were sometimes partly hidden below the top and bottom bars.

A big thank you to Todo.txt user, Georg Handwerker, for help identifying the root cause of the filtering and keyboard shortcut bugs.
