Bug Description

I added this idea in a blueprint but I read the developers don't use blueprints that much and bugs were the preferred way to add feature requests. Here it is:

Currently if you want to copy a list of tasks you cannot easily paste them and convert them to subtasks. A solution would be to check for a selection when the subtask button is pressed and then convert every selected line to a subtask.

Hi Gerhard,

thanks for this request. I'd find such a feature useful. Thanks for the proposal. Right now, we work on regressions and trying to release a new version. If you want to speed things up, you can code it yourself. :-)

Changed in gtg:
importance: Undecided → Wishlist
status: New → Confirmed
milestone: none → 0.4
tags: added: editor

Haha, I was planning on doing so, but unfortunately the project is
written in python. C++ would have been ok, I guess I have to move
'learning python' higher up on my Getting Things GNOME list :P

I'm thinking, instead of "changing the selected line", we can actually do "convert the current line to be a subtask". There's a button in the task editor called "insert a subtask in this task", I think we can change this button to be the one mentioned above, and add a short-cut key.
