Re: Additional states for checkboxes


I am concerned an additional state would not be very intuitive.  However, I share a similar interest in filtering some items from the task list.  In the past (Zim .59) an alternative I used was a specific priority method and a minor tweak to the task list plugin.

There is an existing feature in the Task List dialog to "Only Show Actionable Tasks" that is based on labels and tags.  See:

I don't really like explicitly tagging or labeling everything that I might NOT do but I do tend prioritize everything that I WILL do.  To support this, I modified the task list plugin to identify non-actionable items as anything with a priority of 0.  Enabling the "Only Show Actionable Tasks" options all 0 priority tasks are filtered.

Hi all,

that sounds similar to a state "in progress" that I would find very convenient. Alternatively, a hint about how / where to define these states and icons would be very much appreciated as well.

Thanks and best wishes,
