Shortcuts ◎ How do I use it? ▸ Feature list ▸ Gallery ▸

Note: just "Up↑/Down↓" refer to the Arrow Up↑/Down↓ keys.


Note that you can change these on the Interface tab of the Settings dialog,
especially in case some other software would have allocated the defaults.

If you did, those apply, see Menu/Settings, switch to Interface.

By default

use Ctrl+Alt+Shift +

A for the Active card
D to Select a card/browse cards
M to access the Menu (note: you may need to hold this a bit longer than expected)

F2 to edit
Enter to confirm the edit (Ctrl+Enter inside the description editor)
Esc to cancel the editing (when not editing, Esc quits the current dialog)
Del to clear a grid cell/delete a TODO/checklist
Alt+1..9 to toggle labels 1-9

Text block moving/prioritisation - to move the current

  • checklist item(s)

Some editor shortcuts

can be used.

Use Alt +

  • I to toggle whether the link supposedly points to an image

Double keystrokes

In the card name/description/link editors:

Once in the editor, press the shortcut for a given field (again) to quickly select its entire content. Examples: 2xAlt+E selects the entire description in the Active Card dialog, or the entire text when in the link editor.

Undo/Redo in description (also name and link) editing

This should typically work as long as the same card is selected (it isn't that different from the norm, you'll see)

Description editing

  • Ctrl+K edit a hyperlink at the cursor

Either before starting to type or after selecting the text

  • Ctrl+I italic
  • Ctrl+B bold
  • Ctrl+M inline monospace (code)
  • Indent/outdent
    • Ctrl+] & Ctrl+[ should just work when in the editor
    • Tab & Shift+Tab once the text was selected as well
  • Ctrl+Q (Ctrl+Shift+Q) block quote (unquote) text by a level in the 'email history style' (i.e. using > at the line starts)
  • Ctrl+Down↓/Up↑ scroll the edited content without moving the cursor


  • Ctrl+D, Ctrl+P, also double-click: View attachment
    (works for images & cards: will open the image or activate a linked card)

'Select card' dialog

  • Ctrl+Page Up/Down select the card a page above/below the current
  • Alt+Page Up/Down scroll the description being previewed
    (Why moving items can matter?
    You may wish to aim to keep your thoughts prioritised - one way to depict that is the vertical order.)
  • Ctrl+Plus or Ctrl+Equal insert a new card where the current card is
  • Alt+Plus or Alt+Equal insert a new card just below the current card
  • 1..9 to more simply toggle labels 1-9 when on the Labels column
  • Ctrl+Alt+A make the selected the active card
  • Ctrl+Alt+H move the active card "here", where the current selection is
  • Ctrl+1..9 filter by phase 1..9 in the "*" workflow (this is available whether or not it's a free workflow)
  • Del clear an editable cell
  • Ctrl+X/C/V cut/copy/paste the contents of an editable cell

Image & screenshot viewing and editing

  • Alt+Left←/Right→/Up↑/Down↓ Scroll view left/right/up/down
  • Alt+Page Up/Down Scroll view up/down by a page
  • Alt+Shift+Page Up/Down Scroll view left/right by a page


  • Ctrl+N New area (at or near cursor)
  • Ctrl+V Paste image from clipboard
  • Ctrl+Z Undo
  • Ctrl+A Select the whole image

If there is a selected area

  • Left←/Right→/Up↑/Down↓ Move
  • Shift+Left←/Right→/Up↑/Down↓ Resize
  • Ctrl+... Additionally press Ctrl for a fine grain move & resize
  • Del Delete

Also, there are quick shortcuts:

  • L, E, T, R, S, A Change the shape (to line, ellipse, text, rectangle, selection, arrow)
    Double press options
    • press L/A again to cycle the direction of the line/arrow counter-clockwise
    • use Shift+L/A to do it the other way around
  • C change the color (if applicable, it is the contour for shapes)
  • I change the fill type/color (if applicable, it is the background for texts)
  • F change the font (for texts)
  • Ctrl+E expand boundary by a pixel (like a "+1 margin")
  • Ctrl+Shift+E shrink boundary by a pixel (like a negative margin applied)

For selections only:

  • B to adjust brightness/contrast
    • within the brightness/contrast dialog appearing then, Alt+B/C/K also work without Alt
  • Ctrl+I auto-shrink selection (to contour, if identifiable - may not always work, but "worth a try")

Window area shortcuts

Use Ctrl+Alt+

  • L, R, C to position the window on the left/right, in the centre
  • W, E, F to set widths
  • Z to toggle between full/manually adjusted height

Tip: There are also context menus (right click with the mouse to access) to remind you of most of these
