Add "set due date" to Format Menu, besides the Action Items in project?

Add "set due date" to Format Menu, besides the Action Items in project?

Just transit to Dropbox Paper from Google Keep and loved it.

 

I like to use the "Project Plan" template to create projects and set due date for "Action Items".

 

1.  But if I copy list of tasks from other format into "Action Items", then I just cannot set due dates. Even if I use "Copy as Plain Text" option.

2.  Also, if I am not using "Project Plan", but to create a doc from fresh, I know how to set up task by "[] ", but still cannot set the due date.

3. If I copy "Action Items" from an existing Project plan doc to another Dropbox paper doc, I can still get the "set due date" icon, so it is universal feature and not limited to "Project Plan", but there is a missing menu option to format it.

Ah, I see.

 

What happens for me is that the little calendar icon disappears for me too, if my browser window is too small.

I drag it bigger and it appears. Does this help?

Hey Tim Do you see the little 'calendar' icon next to the todo?

Hi Lukeyo

Thanks for your kind response.

I can see the calenda/"set due date" icon in the "Action Items" section in Project plan, but cannot get it in other doc, or "tasks" created by myself.

I have a similar issue, I can add actions [] to tables, but I can't assign due dates to those actions, as I can if they are in a stand-alone line.  And it doesn't matter how wide the screen is, or if I have the toggled to full-width:
