checklists: shortcut "d" over an item opens the item editor, not the date menu

Thomas Kailer November 8, 2023

Hi there!


It seems, that hitting "d" while hovering over a checklist item will not open the date menu, but instead opens the item editor - as does hitting "a" and "m".

Hitting "d" while hovering over the card itself still opens the date menu.


It is not my keyboard.

And it is the same behavior in the browser and in the desktop app.


Is it just me or do others have the same issue?


Thank you!

I have the very same issue: the old "d" shortcut stopped opening the calendar for a checklist item when you hover over it - instead, it opens the text box.

This is troublesome and needs a fix. For clicking each time after the tiny clock to open the calendar is much less convenient, than to hover wherever over a box of item and pressing a key. Especially when working with checklists that consist of a large body of items.

Also, this shortcut has been in use since forever, and one might think that a lot of people have already grew accustomed to it. What's with the sudden change?

Seems to be a bug, after all.

Submitted a support ticket.

Thank you, Sam!

After submitting another support ticket they fix the issue: Hitting "d" opens the date editor for the checklist item again.

Thank you!
