<Enter> does not append a new task below the current one

SD

when I am editing a task, and hit <enter> is it not supposed to append a new task below the task being edited.

when I hit <enter> it exits the task, but brings me back to the list of task

when I hit <Shift><Enter> it appends a new task

Hello Sean,

That's correct, editing a task and confirming the changes with Enter will not open another task input box below. To do so, you must use Shift+Enter.

If you're adding a new task then you can just use Enter to open a new input box below or Ctrl+Enter to open a new input box above.


Best regards,
David

You guys may want to change the "keyboard shortcuts" help file, as it states that Enter *does* append a new item.

Hello Doug,

It's true, Enter will append a new item. We will consider clarifying as there's a difference between what happens if you add a task and what happens if you edit a task.

1. When ADDING a task, you can use Enter to save it and it will open another input field below it so you can add another.

2. When EDITING an existing task, Enter will only save the changes in this particular edited task and not append a new input field - that's where you'll need to use Ctrl+Enter or Shift+Enter to save the changes and append an item above or below it.


Best regards,
David

Aha! Now I see... thanks for clarifying.
