  2. Make the parent point a checkbox. Now the children will both also have checkboxes
  3. Navigate to a child point and hit the shortcut to remove the child point checkbox.

The child checkbox disappears

Actual result

Instead of the expected result, what happened?
The child checkbox remains.

Additional comments

I’m having the same problem. I want to be able to have checkboxes on some children but not others, but it seems to be all or nothing.

Windows 10, Firefox 64.0.2.

This is by design. I also woukd like an enhancement that allows children not to have checkboxes.
