Hitting CTRL+n in Outlook when focus is on Todoist plugin launches Todoist in IE...need to reauthenticate!

This is a major workflow issue for me. It's related to the other 'issue' that I submitted (If you open up IE, my Todoist plugin requires me to authenticate again)

There are many times when I'm in Outlook and I want to compose an email. I use CTRL-N.

However, if the Todoist plugin is in focus, CTRL+N actually launches IE and takes me to the Todoist website! (And now because IE opened up, I can't use the Todoist Outlook plugin and have to authenticate again) Very frustrating...

Hi James,

I can confirm the issue though it acts differently for me. When the Todoist is in focus, when I press CTRL+N it does nothing, instead of opening up IE.

Which version of Outlook are you running? I will let the developers know about it.
