Weekly update: 2017 week #32

This is our weekly update for the 32nd week of 2017. The features and fixes might arrive at the desktop and mobile app a few days later than the web version.


Feature

  • New customizable shortcut: go to parent item. This is under the “Navigating & moving” section in Settings – Keymap.
  • New customizable shortcut: go to previous sibling and go to next sibling. This is under the “Navigating & moving” section in Settings – Keymap.
  • New customizable shortcut: duplicate current item. This is under the “Working with lists” section in Settings – Keymap.

Improved

  • [Keymap] Now you can add multiple shortcuts or remove current shortcuts for an action.
  • [Mobile] Now the mobile app will attempt to sync when it’s brought up from the background. This is be available in the next mobile app update.
  • [UI/minor] Now you can go up from the first item to the current root item with the Up arrow key.

Fixed

  • [Search] Fixed items with children don’t properly show the parent bullet (circled dot) in search.
  • [UI/minor] Fixed Up arrow doesn’t work when the cursor is at the beginning of a line in a multi-line item, excepting the first line.
  • [UI/minor] Fixed expand/collapse icon overlaps with the bullet after window is resized to be narrower than really narrow (less than 600px).
  • [UI/minor] Fixed left pane becomes empty after window is resized to be narrower than really narrow (less than 600px).

    I am also seeing arrows for revealing and hiding content. I think there are a number of people for whom that change is important, people who get confused or who find it hard to distinguish regular bullets and the old thicker bullets. kudos.

    • What do you mean, Dave? I don’t think that’s part of this week’s intended change.

      Are you using numbered lists?

      • davegifford

        Ah, ok the arrows are for numbered lists. I haven’t really used them until now, and so never discovered them until now. My bad.

        • No worries! Just to clarify, it uses arrows instead of + and – because we don’t want to mask the number 🙂
