Editing text


I'm a heavy user of keyboard shortcuts and notice that if I need to edit text, I must either arrow left/right or use the mouse. there doesn't seem to be a way for me to CTRL+arrow to move the cursor left and right by entire words. This is a feature built into all the other programs and apps I have ever encountered. In fact, CTRL+arrow works while typing up this question.

Since I don't expect there to be a tip that will allow me to use the CTRL+arrow shortcut in Todoist, could I ask that this function be considered in your next update to this fabulously wonderful app/program? Thanks!

CTRL+Arrow does not work like most other software because we have it set to move the indentation of the task. If you actually press CTRL+ < arrow, and there is no indentation, you can see that it will actually skip words.

We are always looking to improve, and keyboard shortcuts is a big one we are aware of. Many improvements are going to be coming in the near future.

Thanks for the suggestions,
