keyboard shortcuts -> please let me press enter when just selected project

Dear Todoist folks,

I would really like to press enter to add a new task. This is not possible when the item list of projects is still active...

My workflow:
Use the keyboard!
ctrl-Q -> add task description
tab -> add date ('tom' or something like that)
tab -> select project by typing first few letters
enter.... (need to tap tab another time..)

Is this by design / on purpose?

Thank you!

Hello Rein,

Thank you for your report, I've passed it to the developers.

For now, you could try to add tasks from within a project. For example:
- Hit / to enter the search box
- Use # and start typing a project name to enter it
- Press a to open the input field to enter a task.

This will not only allow you to confirm the saving of the task with Enter, but if you want to add more tasks to the same project, you'll get another input field right away.

Best regards,
