Keyboard shortcuts to add a description and then go back to task list?



Does anyone know if keyboard shortcuts exist to go from a task’s name to the description and then back to the task list?

The workflow I want is this, staying entirely on my keyboard:

  1. Type a new task: “This is a new task”
  2. Hit a keyboard shortcut to go to the description (like TAB-D or something – I know that’s ‘date’)
  3. Enter a description: “Here are some more details about my task that I don’t want to put into the task name.”
  4. Hit another keyboard shortcut to go back to the task list.

For #4, I know you can hit ESC to close out the description box, but then the cursor is no longer in the task text field.

Any ideas? :slight_smile:


Hi @Steven_Rouk, I’ve been doing this:

  1. Type task name
  2. Tab Tab
  3. Type task description
  4. Shift-Tab Shift-Tab

After the above, you’re left focused back on the task name, but not only that, the cursor position within the task name is maintained!
