Numeric Keypad and notes field Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I seem to remember an earlier version of OF (desktop) where if you were typing in one of the fields and hit the enter button on the numeric keypad, it would take you right to the notes field (instead of having to mouse over to the icon). Has this changed to a different key? Thanks in advance!

cmd-' will open the notes field and start editing, or close the notes field if you are already editing. If you look at the archive of release notes from way back around the start of the 1.1 sneaky peeks, you'll find this nugget:
The Enter key now saves edits rather than editing notes. You can still edit notes using Command-', but if you prefer using the Enter key you can set the OOShouldEditNotesOnEnterKey preference to true using this command:
defaults write com.omnigroup.OmniFocus OOShouldEditNotesOnEnterKey -bool true

If you'd like to start weaning yourself away from using the Escape key to save edits, try this:

defaults write com.omnigroup.OmniFocus OOShouldToggleEditingWithEscapeKey -bool false
Worked like a charm! Thanks!
