Re-apply filter after sync

Steps to reproduce

  • Open two browser windows of Dynalist app
  • Add an item without any tags
  • Set filter #foo in window #2
  • Assign tag #foo on item in window #1

Expected result

Window #2 has an item visible under filter #foo without any actions or focus switch

Actual result

Window #2 has no visible items under filter #foo

I think I understand the problem. Unfortunately, the system is designed to search once and not re-apply search queries on data change. This is specifically done to allow you to make edits without re-applying the filter (thus making items you’re might be editing disappear). I totally understand the frustration with your use case though.

Ideally I’d think of a way to make synced edits differ from local edits, however the whole system is designed to not distinguish the two by reacting to identical events when presenting them to the interface.

This might take some time given some amount of change required to revamp the system to enable this to happen, I’ll see what I can do.
