  • Bug occurred when using keyboard shortcuts while creating an issue and not having permission to assign it. It caused the drop-down list with options being displayed in the wrong place.


Right-hand sidebar with issue description and comments

Before, the list of issues in Plain Tasks included comments, which were sometimes overloading it. For your lists to look more compact and easier to work with, comments are now displayed on the right-hand sidebar together with the field for adding a new comment and issue description.

To view the description and comments of a specific issue, select this issue.
