Why are some tasks always on 2+ lines?


Why are some of the views of tasks “multi-line” (i.e. on 2+ lines), whereas othres are on one line?

The following views are on a single line:

  • Projects & Actions
  • (individual projects)
  • Today
  • Inbox

The following views are on multiple lines:

  • Next Actions
  • Focus
  • Scheduled
  • Waiting
  • Someday

Personally, because I tend to have a lot of tasks, I would much prefer to have them all on single lines.

In particular it doesn’t make sense when the task is a standalone task that is not part of a Project.



EDIT: OK I see now that if the screen is wide enough the “always on 2(+) lines thing” does not happen. But my point still stands.
