  3. Press the ESCAPE key so the URL is clickable.
  4. Click on the link.

I’m afraid this is not a bug but a feature.

Clicking on the large space at the bottom will focus on the last item on screen, and if there’s no item on scree, an item will be created.

Yes, clicking on the large space will create a new item. However, I didn’t click in the large space.

The new item is created without clicking on the the large space. It gets automatically created when I click on the search link.

Basically, the outline is being changed despite not making any intentional edits.

The steps above are a bit contrived to better illustrate the core issue.

A more real-life example (and one that affects me) would be:

  1. Browse to https://dynalist.io/demo.
  2. In the Welcome to Dynalist file, add this link: https://dynalist.io/demo/mLU8S-wRRjddVd0m411_2P3I#q=perception
  3. Press the ESCAPE key so the URL is clickable.
  4. Click on the link.
  5. You should be searching for perception.
  6. Change the outline to hide checked items.
  7. Check off all items in the list.
  8. Navigate back to the Welcome to Dynalist file.
  9. Click on the previously added search link.

After I check off all the perception items, there will be no items on the screen. If I click on the search link, Dynalist will add a new blank line.

Each time I click on the search link, another new blank line is appended to the bottom of the checklist.

I completed the checklist, but new blank lines are being added to it each time I click on the search link.

I see, I was able to repro in demo. Not in my own Dynalist though, curiously.

Thanks for catching this!

We have tracked this bug on our todo list, and will fix it as soon as we can! Thanks again for letting us know. I’ll update here when it’s fixed :slight_smile:

The other bug (link: Extra new line when navigating between 2 bookmarks) seems to be caused by the same underlying bug. I know it might have shown slightly different symptoms over there, but for tracking purpose I’ll mark that one as a duplicate and track this post instead.

Thanks for understanding!
