Indent While In Reorder Mode


Hello -

Great product - thank you.

While in Reorder Mode, can I use the mouse and/or a keyboard shortcut to indent a task?

I've started to organize tasks in subtasks (within projects) and I find that I am Reordering tasks, only to leave the Reorder Mode to indent them under headers (i.e., tasks with a leading "*").

Also, if you have a place where are the tricks and tips are listed together, such as holding shift while clicking a task complete, I would welcome the full reference sheet / instructions.

Hello Brent,

it is possible to change the indent level of a task while in reorder mode. To do so, please use the 1, 2, 3 or 4 number keys while "holding" a task (keeping the left mouse button pressed on it).

You can find most tips, keyboard shortcuts or date formats on our help page. Click the question mark icon in the upper-right corner and you'll find useful information on this page and can browse through some Todoist tips at the bottom by clicking on the "Get the next tip" link.

The information about changing indent levels while in reordering mode is indeed not documented yet, we will add it soon, though.

Best regards,

Thank you.

I've been out to your site and clicked through everything, I believe. Good information. I'd pin up the one-page-PDF cheat sheet, if done.

I do appreciate the above technique!
