Convert To Task duplicating all the subtasks

I have a primary tasks set with a tag and a list of subtasks. When I convert one of the subtasks to a task, the newly created task will duplicate the subtasks of the parent. How can I prevent this from happening?

Ths problem was not reproducible for me. I created this simple task starting with 5 Subtaks:

  1. Create Task (with minimum Task Description) with 5 Subtasks.
  2. Make Task from subtask 1 using the ▼ item in Subtask
  3. Check whether it contains all Subtasks from primary task: does not
  4. Make Task from subtask 5 using the ▼ item in Subtask
  5. Check whether it contains all Subtasks from primary task: does not
  6. Add TAG to primary Task
  7. Make Task from subtask 3 using the ▼ item in Subtask
  8. Check whether it contains all Subtasks from primary task: does not.

Do you see differences to your proceeding?
Some mor info concerning your config would be helpful.

I also did a brief test. No subtasks are inherited from the parent, only the tags do.
Inheriting tags could be considered as a wanted feature, IMHO.

Hey everyone. Sorry for the delayed response between work and kids it’s hard to find a quiet moment.

I have the “convert to sub tasks” plugin and the “auto assign subtasks to category” plugin installed so the category I had assigned to the task would auto create subtasks into the newly created tasks I had converted from existing subtasks. If that makes sense.

The solution was to remove the category from the tasks before starting to convert subtasks to tasks
