Improve Keyboard Navigation

Stanley Idesis 2 years ago • updated by Support 2 years ago 1

Hi there,

I've used Singletask for a few days now and love the minimalistic feel of it.

One thing I don't like is the keyboard controls for navigating among lists.

For example, the return key is required to enter a list, but the left arrow and right arrow are used to navigate from the task list, to the single task, and back to the task list. Therefore, when in the main list, I want to press the right arrow key to enter it, but alas, that's not how it works.

This navigation dynamic also messes with renaming. For example, when I hit Cmd+R to rename a task, pressing the left/right arrow to move my cursor will drop me out of rename mode and either put me in singletask mode or back to the list of lists.

I will personally re-bind my keys so that it suits my needs, and here's how:

cmd+arrow required to enter or exit any mode. Try it out and let me know what you think. I think it should be changed at least enough to avoid cursor navigation / renaming problems.

Thank you for reading,

Stanley, thanks for bringing this to our attention. We will reconsider the current keyboard shortcuts. In the meantime, I assume you are aware of the ability to set custom shortcuts via System Preferences > Shortcuts > App Shortcuts?
