Create Task/Sub-Task from Description through toolbar button

i know there is already Paste multiple tasks or sub-tasks

but my suggestion is a bit different, we often start a project or a task that is used to collect different ideas and sub tasks, if the sub-task is bigger and need more than a bulletpoint or checkbox then you start converting checkboxed entries to sub-tasks or separate Tasks, all by copying and pasting and clicking around, in that process you loose the connection between the entry and the newly created task if you don't go over board and a hell of a lot more clicking and copying and pasting permalinks back to the source.

Why not add a dedicated button in the toolbar that takes the marked text, creates a Task and puts the text in the Title (in case you are in a Project or Folder) or a Subtask (in case you are in a Task), converts the marked text to an interactive link.

In case of a list, multiple tasks could be created and linked. This would also solve the "paste list as tasks" as they could just use a folder/project/task as a container and generate the tasks through this button.

Hi Nihad Perva, thanks a lot for sharing your feedback! I'm passing it on to the team now and I'll let you know once I have an update. At the same time, your suggestion is similar to the one you mention, and the status of that one is currently "Not Planned". 

Thank you again for suggesting!

yes my suggestion is irrelevant if you would implement the other suggestion but my approach is more context driven and you would convert stuff that was already formatted by your engine, pasting stuff inside the title is not so transparent. This one would be very intuitive and i am just wondering how many are working this way, i mean start small and evolve from the initial request and start diverging into subtasks as this process is very tedious right now and you loose the link to the initial entry by just copy pasting stuff

I would highly appreciate this feature! It could be really helpful.

I'd like to add that the new created tasks should be automatically assigned tho the same person that is assigned to the parent task.
