Improve Shortcuts#66

Generally, this app has very poor support for shortcuts for an app claiming that all other Todo apps are broken.

I see a lot of promise in it, though. But before you don’t let me interact with the macOS app primarily via shortcuts, then I’ll stick to Things which makes me much more productive in handling my Todo list.

Some examples of badly missing shortcuts:

  • ⌘, to open preferences (works in every other macOS app)
  • ⌘n to add new todo item (‘n’ for ‘new’ is also an extremely common standard in macOS apps)
  • Shortcut to go “back” (e.g. from preferences back to todo list)
  • ⌘enter to “Start Slashing”
  • ⌘up/down to move selected items up and down the list
  • ⌘m to move an item into another list

I’m sure I’m missing a lot more.

@Philip.paetz These are great suggestions! Very easy adds too. I’ll get this on my personal Slash to add :)

All of these shortcuts and more have been added to the app. Check them out at the bottom of the ‘Settings’ page :)

Thanks, this is great!
Moving the tasks with ⌘ + ⬆️ and ⬇️ is still buggy for me. Some tasks do not go step by step up or down but instead take huge jumps that I can’t explain. Check out the attached GIF for an example where just pressed ⌘ + ⬇️ on the top-most task (if it jumped to the last position, I would understand the behavior, but to the penultimate position?)

Argh that’s frustrating. So far I’m not able to replicate. Adding to our dev list…
