Shortcuts ◎ How do I use it? ▸ Feature list ▸ Gallery ▸

Note: just "Up↑/Down↓" refer to the Arrow Up↑/Down↓ keys.


Note that you can change these on the Interface tab of the Settings dialog,
especially in case some other software would have allocated the defaults.

If you did, those apply, see Menu/Settings, switch to Interface.

By default

use Ctrl+Alt+Shift +

A for the Active card
D to Select a card/browse cards
M to access the Menu
N to create a New card


F2 to edit
Enter to confirm the edit (Ctrl+Enter inside the description editor)
Esc to cancel the editing (when not editing, Esc quits the current dialog)
Del to clear a grid cell/delete a TODO/checklist
Alt+1..9 to toggle labels 1-9

Text block moving/prioritisation - to move the current

  • checklist item(s)
  • card
  • description editor line (or selected text, if any),

you can use

  • Shift+Ctrl+Up↑/Down↓ to move by one
  • Shift+Ctrl+Page Up/Down to move by a page
  • Shift+Ctrl+Home/End to move to the top/bottom of the list
  • Alt+Shift+Left←/Right→ to move to the prev./next workphase

as well as mouse based drag & drop operations, of course.

Some editor shortcuts

if you want to quickly jump to edit a certain field, use Alt +
C - name
E - description
T - todos
U - due date (including toggling whether there is one)
F - filter ('Select Card' dialog only)
Double keystrokes: once in the editor, press the related shortcut (again) to quickly select its entire content

Undo/Redo in description (and name) editing

This should typically work as long as the same card is selected (it isn't that different from the norm, you'll see)

Description editing

  • Ctrl+P to toggle live preview on/off

Either before starting to type or after selecting the text

  • Ctrl+I for italic
  • Ctrl+B for bold
  • Ctrl+M for inline monospace (code)
  • Indent/outdent
    * Ctrl+] & Ctrl+[ should just work when in the editor
    * Tab & Shift+Tab once the text was selected as well
  • Ctrl+Q (Ctrl+Shift+Q) to block quote (unquote) text by a level in the 'email history style' (i.e. using > at the line starts)
  • Ctrl+Down↓/Up↑ to scroll the edited content without moving the cursor

Checklist editing

  • Ctrl+Plus or Ctrl+Equal to insert a new checklist item where the current card is
  • Alt+Plus or Alt+Equal to insert a new checklist item just below the current card
  • Ctrl+X/C/V, Del to cut/copy/paste, delete the selected checklist item(s)

'Select card' dialog

  • Ctrl+Page Up/Down to select the card a page above/below the current
  • Alt+Page Up/Down to scroll the description being previewed
    (Why moving items can matter?
    You may wish to aim to keep your thoughts prioritised - one way to depict that is the vertical order.)
  • Ctrl+Plus or Ctrl+Equal to insert a new card where the current card is
  • Alt+Plus or Alt+Equal to insert a new card just below the current card
  • 1..9 to more simply toggle labels 1-9 when on the Labels column
  • Ctrl+Alt+A to make the selected the active card
  • Ctrl+Alt+H to move the active card "here", where the current selection is
  • Ctrl+1..9 to filter by phase 1..9 in the "*" workflow (this is available whether or not it's a free workflow)
  • Del to clear an editable cell
  • Ctrl+X/C/V to cut/copy/paste the contents of an editable cell

Window area shortcuts

Use Ctrl+Alt+

  • L, R, C for positioning the window on the left/right, in the centre
  • W, E, F for setting widths
  • Z to toggle between full/manually adjusted height

Tip: There are also context menus (right click with the mouse to access) to remind you of most of these
