New: More keyboard shortcuts

Continuing with yesterday’s updates, here are the promised keyboard shortcuts:

  • Switch theme: ‘v‘ followed by ‘d‘ark or ‘l‘ight
  • Switching highlight colours: ‘h‘ followed by
    • g‘ for grey,
    • b‘ for Rebecca purple,
    • v‘ for green,
    • y‘ for yellow, or
    • o‘ for orange

A list of these, and all other keyboard shortcuts is available here.

Helper for multi-key keyboard shortcuts

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Added helper modals to assist with multi-key keyboard shortcuts – changing task priority (‘p‘ + ‘a..z‘), switching theme (‘v‘ + ‘d/l‘), and switching highlight colours (‘h‘ + ‘g/b/v/y/o‘).

When the the first key is pressed, a small window appears in the bottom right with hints about next key options available.

This also helps prevent unknowingly changing priority by indicating priority changing mode is on.

As usual, please share any bugs, or new feature suggestions that you come across.
