Enhancement request: use keyboard navigation keys for moving around


I am new to Todoist, having used Remember the Milk and Gmail extensively. I am finding myself wanting to navigate around using the j and k keys just like the above two apps. This would allow me to minimize using the mouse whenever possible. Tab could go from the list menu to the task list itself.

Imagine hitting the j key several times, then hitting the enter key to edit a task.

Hello Mark,

there are many keyboard shortcuts in Todoist allowing you to add many tasks one after another without using the mouse. We will surely consider adding new ones (you're welcome to add a request to our Votebox: http://todoist.com/Vote/ ), but for now, please check the full list of available shortcuts here: http://todoist.com/Help/viewHelp

Best regards,

Hi, David,

Yes, I saw the list of available shortcuts, and that's where I noticed the omission of j and k. Furthermore, it seems that you have to click on a task *first* before starting the up/down with Ctrl-Up Arrow or Ctrl-Down Arrow. That reach for the mouse breaks the quick flow.

I'll add this to the Votebox now that I'm aware of that route.
