Creating a new project from a task

Just tried to create a new project from an existing task. I ticked the task and selected move. The next dialog box shows all my projects and ------------ at the top so I hoped that might mean if I selected ------------ it would create a new project named the same as the task. It didn't. It created an error and appears to have deleted the task.

    You cannot create a new project in this way

    and you are correct that if you try it shows an error.

    We will improve this - either making it clearer that ------- is not an option or allowing the ability to create a new project at that point

    Thanks for spotting this !

    Thanks John - I'm always keen to try things out and don't mind if they don't work. However what was slightly disturbing in this instance was that it seemingly ditched the task in question completely. So if that little "feature" could be caught, that would be great :-)
