Finally made the connection between this ticket and this ticket which you posted to but I didn't follow up.

Undoubtedly related. Apologies.

Re: Saving Spreadsheet contents to an external file

Should you decide to disable Open/Save, i think it might be equally wise I think I will for 8.1, but your idea of 'live' editing has piqued my interest so I will continue to explore this as a future addition. I don't know maybe you can set a prompt whenever someone switches to the spreadsheet would...

Re: Save deleted tasks to a 'recycle bin'

I see your point. Deleting tasks is a much more significant operation than editing an attribute and once you restart TDL the deleted task is gone forever from the undo stack. Two possible ways of handling this are: 1. Restore the task from backup ( Tools > Preferences > File Actions (more) > Backup ...
