Shortcut to convert an inbox item into a project? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Hi,

I realise that many of the items I enter in OF via the quick entry window need to become projects (because they are made of several actions).

So, once these items are in my inbox, is there a shortcut to convert these into projects? I have seen that I can drag them into the left column when I am in Planning mode, but it would be faster with a keyboard shortcut...

Thank you for helping!
 
command-[
The same keyboard shortcut (outdent) that turns an action into a project in the library will work here.
 
Great!

Thanks Lizard! I couldn't find in the docs... sorry for bothering you!

How do you enter CMD-[ in a non-US keyboard? On my keyboard I have to use ALT-8 to enter [, and trying CMD-ALT-8 triggers display magnification. Is there an alternative key binding for this, or a possibility to change key bindings?
 
On a somewhat related note, I would like multiple lines of text when sent to the Quick Entry window to show up as separate Actions, rather than as separate lines in the notes field.

I realise that some may like the existing behaviour, so how about have an action, accessible under the 'Cog' menu, that allows you to toggle between these two behaviours.
 
Old thread, but...

- What is the menu command for this? On my iPad it's easy to convert an action to a Project. But I can't find it on my Mac version.

- As pnr says, I would like to see more international Shortcuts in all Omni products. Many shortcuts are strange letters that non US keyboards don't have as default, which means that you have to press ALT to get them, and in doing so triggers something else...

Even if you actually are able to change shortcuts via System preferences > Keyboard, it's better that we can use existing ones I guess.

What's an example of a shortcut that does that?
