Adding task on a specific project by keyboard


After I press "a", I am able to type the task and due date. However, I can not assign it to a project.
It would be useful if I can type the project name and it goes directly to the specified project.
At the moment, I type the task details. Right click it and move it to another project.

Hello Erdem,

The "a" key only works if you're already within a project so the task will be automatically assigned to this project.

To add tasks to any other project, please use "q" instead (or globally - Ctrl+Alt+A). This will open the "Quick Add" box and this option will indeed allow you to select a project. Hit the TAB key twice and start typing the project's name to use auto-complete and pick the project.

Best regards,

I can see that I can drag existing tasks when my (windows app) window is big enough, but I prefer it docked to the side of my screen, which hides the projects.
How do I add an existing task to projects - when editing?

There is no way to change projects while in edit mode but right click on a project and choose "Move To Another Project"
