I’ve tried typing and then adding the item but it doesn’t turn it into a task. When I hit ‘/’ there’s no option for creating tasks, and the page on the website about creating tasks doesn’t tell me how to create them. (also it has a typo–“has an open tasks”)
I found the help button in the bottom right corner and was able to access the Cheat Sheet to figure this out.
Glad you figured it out @emeffinsteve! For anyone else wondering how to create tasks, there is an article here on the Help Center → Tasks | Supernotes Help.
