Move tasks up and down with keyboard.
Most outliners allow you to move a task with the keyboard as opposed to moving between tasks with the keyboard. More keyboard shortcuts and fewer mouse clicks improves productivitiy.
I'd be happy with [shift]+[return] to add a task before the last one. I often work back in time with setting tasks, stating the goal then working back step by step.
Jira has two very useful keyboard shortcuts:
s+t = send to top of list
s+b = send top bottom of list
This would be useful for todoist lists too.
I need this function not only for tasks editing but also project editing.
This would be great since it is much less strenuous to use the keyboard than to have to move all the way to the mouse.
It would be nice to have a keyboard delete and customizable keyboard shortcuts.
Agreed. On a Mac, Command + Control + arrow key should move the task up our down. Just like OmniFocus.
I just wanted to note for anyone that stumbles across this thread:
ctrl + arrow (up or down) does move the tasks up/down, and ctrl + arrow (left or right) changes the task indentation.
I think control + arrow just moves the focus up and down the list, it doesn't actually reorder the tasks itself.
Silly me. You're right. I'd just done a quick check (needless to say, I never use the feature) and thought I'd seen the task move, but you're right, it just moves the "editing" option up and down between different tasks.
