TaskPaper3: Delete keyboard shortcut and Move to Project requests


#1

Two open requests:

  1. The Delete keyboard shortcut cannot be set to cmd-k

  2. Move to Project… moves the item to the bottom of the target Project. If the project is big, it is difficult to find the moved item. I prefer the previous behaviour from TP2 of moving to the top of the project (ideally, indented one level)


#2

You are trying to change in System Preferences? Any idea why it doesn’t work? Can you see that shortcut in other apps>

I’ve already got a bug report going for Move to Project location… I expect to have that changed in next release.


#3

Yes, i’m trying to change in Sys Prefs/Keyboard/Shortcuts/App Shortcuts.

In Folding Text, i’m able to bind cmd-K to Delete Item.

In TP3, if i type in “Delete” as the menu command, the shortcut disappears completely.

If i instead include a space after the word Delete, i get ^K in the menu, even though i’ve asked it to be cmd-K.

and even then, the keybinding doesn’t stick. sometimes it just goes back to shift-ctrl-K

I think we actually ran into this earlier in the preview version, then I forgot about it and recreated the problem. I think the issue might be that I have the name “Delete” in bot the edit and items menu. I’ll try renaming the second to “Delete Items” and hope that removes the issue.


#5

Yes that’s it. i didn’t see Delete in the edit menu this time because it only lights up when a piece of text is highlighted.


#6

Actually see this article for a way to make it work:

With that workaround I think I might leave things as the are. Adding “Items” to that menu seems redundant since it’s already in the “Items” submenu. If I use

Items->Delete

Then I can target that specific item.


#7

Works like a charm. (and now i can also assign cmd-D to Items->Duplicate)

thanks
