I believe this is now fixed in e395b3fbce9a78799c139078e6c55d38ccae93b8. Thanks for the report, and please let us know if you still see a problem.

I confirmed this, planner-carry-tasks-forward uses planner-copy-or-move-region, which will move tasks wherever it finds them within the region -- not just in the Tasks section. I'm not sure what a good way to have planner-copy-or-move-region be aware of what section (Tasks or Notes etc) the region was in -- so I think I'm going to try and fix this by narrowing to the tasks section in planner-carry-tasks-forward.

I just upgraded to Planner 3.42 (from 3.40).

I noticed that a task that's quoted in the notes section of a date page can
be copied onto today's day page.

Here's what I observed:

When I started planner (M-x plan), I got "thrashing" of the today page and
an old date page:

Preparing diary...done
C:/jrnl/Work/2004.12.14.muse and c:/jrnl/Work/2004.12.14.muse are the same
file
C:/jrnl/Work/2008.06.04.muse and c:/jrnl/Work/2008.06.04.muse are the same
file
Preparing diary...done
C:/jrnl/Work/2004.12.14.muse and c:/jrnl/Work/2004.12.14.muse are the same
file
C:/jrnl/Work/2008.06.04.muse and c:/jrnl/Work/2008.06.04.muse are the same
file
Preparing diary...done
etc
.
.
.

After I break out of this (C-g), Emacs showed the old date page
2004.12.14.muse. This file has no tasks.

But this text is in the notes section:

[-]

> I entered a new task by manually typing something like:
>
> #A0 _ Test manual tasks (2004.12.14)
>


And the today page 2008.06.04.muse has this "phantom task":

#A0 _ Test manual tasks (2004.12.14)

I figure this new version of planner is finding tasks in sections other than
the Tasks section. So I "broke" up the "#A0" text with spaces like this "#
A 0". And I deleted the phantom task from the today page.

Then I restarted plan.

I don't get the trashing anymore, I get normal startup behavior, and the
phantom task no longer appears.

I do have (setq planner-carry-tasks-forward 0) in my .plan file. If you're
curious, my .emacs and .plan code can be found here:

Just thought someone would like to know.
