Add j and k as navigation keys, and make it possible to edit a task without clicking


I'm so accustomed to Gmail's navigation with j/k keys and being able to act upon the current selection (open, file, etc.). Remember The Milk uses j/k keys as well, and that's where I'm coming from.

There doesn't seem to be a way to enter the edit mode of a task without clicking on the task's content. So with the j/k keys to navigate, there must also be an Enter key to go into the item to edit (or mimic Gmail's 'o' commend for open).

Definitely do this one! Gmail is so much better with keyboard shortcuts!

"gt" could be "go to today"

F2 is pretty standard for editing fields (e.g. Excel)

n/p could be used to move between project highlighted (in gmail these are used to move between items in a thread).

# for delete.
In general, it'd be great to take as much from gmail's shortcuts as possible!

Agreed— these aren't just GMail, but shell/emacs/Google+ shortcuts that many users are familiar with.

Please add this feature as soon as possible! "Vim-like" navigation keys are essential to increase productivity!!!

It would be nice to be able to move up and down the task list with the cursor (or vim-like jk keys) and promote or demote tasks to change their subtask level quickly.

This could either be done by making i start edit mode - and then use CTRL-LEFT and CTRL-RIGHT.

OR the h and l keys could be used to promote / demote tasks to different levels.

dd could also delete a task.
O would add a subtask below & o a task above.
A or $ could start editing text at the end of the line.
^ would start editing at the start of the line.
gg & G to go to the top and bottom task.
/ would go to the search bar.
yy to copy the task to clipboard.
V to start multiple selection - with j and k to extend selection.

No doubt you would get a strong following from Vim fans, who will doubtless also correct my mistakes above / suggest better options. :)
