keyboard shortcuts for notes (open and close)


It would be great to have a keyboard shortcut to a tasks's note pop-up window when editing the task. Also, a keyboard shortcut (like the Esc key) to close the note pop-up would be terrific.

This is one of my biggest peeves with Todoist; it sort of feels like one of the highlighted premium features hasn't gotten the same thorough treatment as the rest of the interface.

There also should be a key to "Add"/Save the note, CTRL+Enter or something, instead of clicking the button.

As a new user, I intuitively wanted to add a note once I finish typing a task, but found I had to Add Task, and then figure out that I had to hover my cursor over the task before I can add a note.

This feels to me, as a new user, the most awkward part of an otherwise very clean, quick UI.

Notes are the biggest disappointment in the UI. Adding a note to a task means you have to:

- click out of the task entry window
+ click on the note icon
+ type a note (and it it's more than one line, you can't see what you've written)
+ click to add note
+ click to get out of note entry window
= 5 separate actions.

= design failure, in a program that has otherwise paid a lot of attention to design.

I completely agree. I keep realizing how useful the notes are, but I hate the flow of using them. I seems that it would make more sense to presume that only 1 note will be added at a time and exit the note entry window after the note is added
