Shortcut to add a task on OS X is wrong

Maybe I'm wrong, but it seems that the shortcut to add a task on OS X is wrong.
When I go to the "add a task button" on the top right it says "Add Task (CTRL+Q)". But on OS X it's actually (CTRL+Shift+Q).

Hello Gerhard,

Thank you for your report. All our desktop apps as well as browser plugins and email client plugins connect to this "mini" version of Todoist: https://todoist.com?mini=1 That said, it's a unified site for all platforms and it indeed mistakenly displays the wrong tooltip.

We'll look into finding a way to solve this issue.

Best regards,

Hello Kamila,

Please click on the TD icon in the top-bar, go to "Configuration" and try to change each of the shortcuts and see if the new ones will work.

Best regards,

It also works for some reason if you hold down CTRL and double-click the Q on the mac.
