Entering Tasks with No Task Addition

This is possibly a perfectionist question, but I'm really starting to rely on Todoist, so I'll ask it.

Scenario: I frequently want to add just one task to a project. So, I'll go to the project, hit shift-A and add it. If I use 'enter,' I get a new task below it, then I have to cancel that new task to do anything else. I get the same behavior if I click 'save.'

How can I enter a new task without then getting an empty second task?

Hello Mark,

When you save a task, no other tasks are created. The empty box you see is not a task, just an option to potentially add a new task, if you leave the project and get back to it without closing the empty box, you will not see an empty task.

Please note that this box can be quickly closed with ESC and as an alternative, you can use the "Quick Add" option (the plus sign in the top-right corner or Ctrl+Q) which will only allow you to add one task.

Best regards,
