Disable shortcuts in OSX app


Is it possible to disable global shortcuts for the OSX app? They are conflicting with other shortcuts that I use (mainly Firefox's undo close tab). I tried clicking X to remove the shortcuts, but it appears the settings are not being saved between application restarts.

opening preferences, closing, and then opening again
causes the preferences window to:
become grayed out and unresponsive to any changes or attempts to close it (including cmd+w). It is possible to close/reopen preferences again by going through the Todoist->Preferences menu. The grayed out state persists until app is relaunched.

Hello Dennis,

Regarding disabling shortcuts - although you can't disable them, you can change them to any key combination you want. To do so, please click on the docked TD icon and go to "Configuration". Here, you can click on the field which you want to change and then use a key combination on your keyboard to set it.

Regarding the preferences issue - I've passed it to the developers, we'll look into it.

Best regards,

I am unable to find the "Configuration" link to change the shortcuts. Control (or right) clicking on the TD icon on Apple's Dock does not bring up the "Configuration" setting. Am I missing something?

OSX version 10.9.4 on MacBook Pro

Thanks in advance

Hi Colin,

You'll have to go the Preferences window to change it though you can only change the "Quick Add" and "Show/Hide Todoist" keyboard shortcut from there.
