Permissions and credits
Fixes persistent Journal notification (!) mark due to incorrect flagging of quests (corrected JournalTextData entry numbers):

- Task: Clearing the Air (13, 14)
- Task: Kadara's Ransom (70, 71)
- Task: Volatile (76, 77)
- Task: Catch and Release (247, 248)
- Task: Cache Flow (321, 322)
- Task: Gone Dark (354, 355)
- Task: Infection (389, 390)
- Task: Little Mouse (488, 489)

If you have such a mark that won´t go away, this mod is worth trying. It will work, if the mark originates from any of those quests.

Done with Frosty Editor. Install/use with Frosty Mod Manager.

USAGE: You will have to select all eight quests from the list of completed quests for a couple of seconds per quest in order for the invisible flags to reset. You'll see the bar twitch one time quickly after about one second.

Once the flags are reset, just save the game and you don´t need the mod in memory anymore. A single appliance/reset corrects the flags and the mod needs to be reloaded only in the next playthrough.

------------------------------------------------

UPDATE: This is update for the previous version which only fixed three quests. I managed to find five more.

I made this fix quickly for personal use, since the (!) mark in Journal button was annoying the heck out of me.
Some times quests cause the exclamation mark to appear on main menu even though they don't have a visible mark in front of them.

Normally you can fix this by just going throught them one-by-one slowly and when the bar twitches, you'll have found one of the wrongly flagged quests and removed the flag. Removing all such hidden flags fixes the problem.

However, some quests can't be rid of those hidden flags without some modding. This mod allows the removal of those flags from eight quests, that tend to bug out. If going through all your quests (also completed) the way I described doesn't remove the exclamation mark in main menu Journal button, you should try using this mod.

NOTE: Always go through all the quests first and save the game if you see the bar twitch for any of them. This way you'll know you don't have any other hidden flags active before clearing these quests. If even one flag is active, you don't see the main menu mark disappear and thus can't be sure if you have made progress.

Seems at least eight quests were bugged and it required me to clear the display/hide criteria associated with their journal text entries (Systems/JournalSystem/JournalSystemAsset/JournalTextData, entries 13, 14, 70, 71, 76, 77, 247, 248, 321, 322, 354, 355, 389, 390, 488, 489) to make it possible to clear the hidden flags.

It´s highly likely that more quest flagging is at least occasionally bugged and the problem is not limited to these eight quests. Still this did it for me and for now. I'm sure the same approach can be used to fix other bugged quests, although addressing the problem at source (i.e. plot flagging in the first place) would most likely require proper access to the real Frostbite editor.
