Tab+S will not create a subtask unless detail pane is open

Briefly describe (1-2 sentences) the Bug you’re experiencing:
When making tasks inside of a section the “Tab+S” shortcut does not allow a subtask to be created without opening the detail popout first

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Create section
  2. Create new task, and fill out description
  3. Press “Tab+S” to create subtask, but nothing happens

Alternatively, with a task that already exists

  1. Highlight task without detail view open
    2)Press “TAB+S”
  2. No subtask is created.

Browser version:
Safari Version 13.0.3 (15608.3.10.1.4)

Hi @Jim_Jenets and welcome to the Forum!

This is actually an expected behaviour. In order to know in which task to nest the subtasks you’re looking to create, you must select a task, which automatically opens the task pane. To learn more about this, you can heave a look at this handy article from our Guide: https://asana.com/guide/help/tasks/subtasks

Hope this helps!
