Customizable global keyboard shortcuts#63

I have some other apps that use the same keyboard shortcuts as slash but since slash shortcuts are global the app shortcuts get overriden.

+1 it’s a big issue for me when coding. I was just doing a replace all in visual studio and my usual shortcut was overriden and instead i get a bunch of gifs on completing all my tasks :)

Oof that is not good. Which shortcut was it, @Anders Schmachtenberg? Unfortunately this isn’t the easiest task, but I’ll move it up on our board since it has the ability to break other apps.

it’s the command-option-enter (used to trigger the replace all, and used to start slashing). thanks for looking into it!

I have Cmd+Opt+N for Safari Move Tab to a New Window (or whatever it is in English, I’m using a Finnish macOS) and Slash takes over that for New Task. I need to customize Slash keyboard shortcuts.

Moving this up in priority now

glad to see this moved up! Adding my vote as well. I use omnifocus as my “primary” task manager and the open new window shortcut is overridden by slash quick entry.

Yup seems like this is majorly problematic for a lot of users. I’m going to see how easy the code will be to allow customization, and worst case add a disable for now to ease that frustration.

Thank you Jordan! I’m still on trial tasks but if you keep Slash as simple as possible – but more customizable to each user’s keyboard shortcut enviroment – I’m ready to consider paying for this.

Me too, I’ve paid Things from Cultured Code to act as my heavy task manager, but I’m all the time losing my focus with it as the management just takes too much effort.

I like how I can keep the daily list big on Slash and just not think about it. I worry if I make all kinds of multiple lists and recurring tasks and scheduled tasks and what-not to it I will lose my focus once again as I’ve lost it in Things (even though I love how well it’s designed and executed!) as more than one list for the day is just simply too much.

Thank you for this refreshing take on task management. (currently I can’t change the size of Slash window for whole screen – don’t know why)

Hey all, I just completed the code to allow you disable or enable each individual global shortcut. This is a halfway point so make the app usable until I have some more time to do the extra 50% of allowing you to customize the shortcuts instead of disabling :) I’ll post here again when it’s been pushed to the beta app, and then again when it’s in production.
