I would love to get more UI Hotkeys. These are the ones I came up with:
x to open the delete dialog for this task
s to open a dialog for a new task that has the current task as parent task (basically creating a subtask)
? to show the hotkeys modal (clicking ? again closes it)
Strg+ to open a dialog to quickly create a new task in default list (I’m not sure which hotkey would be the best…)
Improved List Navigation:
- Currently gn goes to the list view. We could advance this by allowing for a number prefix of this to then go to this specific list.
- So 1gn goes to the first list in your namespace
- 25gn goes to the 25. List
- The same is applicable for Favorites and even for the tasks in a list (3gf goes to the 3. favorite, 5gt goes to the 5. task, …)
- But maybe start with the Lists
While it’s great to be able to get to it from the command menu, I just think it would be even better if it has a direct shortcut, given the fact that it’s probably the most common command/action in the application.
On F4, you are correct, the hotkey is in case it lost focus. I just picked F4 as it is the hotkey in most browser to focus on the search/address-bar.
What do you mean by this? What I would like to see is pressing Esc while in a Input field (edit Task, new task for this List, Add label to task, etc.) and it looses focus. Currently when adding a label to a task I have to do:
enter label name
press <CR> to save it
Now I’m still in the label field. I would like to get out of it by pressing Esc, but it doesn’t work So I have to use the mouse. I hate using the mouse
Did you try the command palette?
The one opened with Ctrl-K? Yes, I tried it. And while it is possible to add a new task here with:
I was in kanban mode because I wanted all of them to be in a specific kanban bucket.
Each time I pressed enter to create the task, I had to click back into the text box to start typing the name of the next task
What would be your preferred solution here? Having a hotkey for each bucket to add a new task to it? Or not closing the input after adding a task to the bucket?
A workaround I’ve used in the past was to move the bucket where I wanted to add a bunch of tasks to the left, making it the default bucket, and then adding the tasks in the list view. Because the bucket is the default bucket, all new tasks from the list view are created in there.
Interesting workaround! Ill certainly keep that in mind for next time.
I guess not releasing the cursor would be optimal in terms of speed as its just input, enter, input, enter etc - then when you want to add more to the task, you click it which would release cursor anyway - obviously we wouldnt know until its tried, but I dont see why that wouldnt work.
Failing that, some sort of shortcut (eg cmd/ctrl+n or an F key) would still be better than constantly reaching back to the mouse
