Is there a keyboard shortcut to edit a checklist item?

I'm working on a card with some very long checklists, and I'd like to be able to quickly edit checklist items.

Once I edit and save a checklist item, I can focus the next one with Tab (it shows an orange boarder indicating this), but I can't seem to do anything with the focussed item.

I've tried Space, Enter, Insert, Delete, Numpad 0, and a few random letters (E, L, C, W), but nothing seems to open the checklist item editor. Some of these do other things to the card; some don't do anything at all.

I'm assuming, since I can focus a checklist item with the keyboard, I must at least be able to tick it off, but I can't even find a way to do that — let alone to edit it.
Is there some set of shortcuts I'm missing?

(I've also checked,, and but none of them seem to list these kind of checklist-related shortcuts.)

Hi @Edward Walker 

It does not appear so. You can view the list here:


That would be a good one though!

Is this the most current and complete list?


The shortcut "Auto-link a card" (`#`) from that page doesn't seem to work for me.

All the other shortcuts there are also in the page I checked before (, which also has some new ones, such as `-` to add a checklist.


If there isn't a shortcut to edit a checklist item, that's fair enough — but I want to be sure I'm looking at an up-to-date list of shortcuts to confirm that.
