I was primarily posting the link in response to Alessandro’s questions about notes.  I am assuming that you have looked at their shortcuts page - https://get.todoist.help/hc/en-us/articles/205063212 .  FWIW, it drives me crazy when program use multi-key commands or unexpected keys for common commands.  In MLO, you need to use the INS command to create a new item.  I know the concept makes sense, but who uses that key in normal work?

Thanks, you’ve helped a lot. I missed the shortcuts page somehow. And I’d been given incorrect advice on another forum to press enter to finish a topic and create a sister topic - the shortcut page led me to the right answer: shift-Enter!
It seems that there’s no equivalent to OmniOutliner’s ‘Add Inside’ (Shift-CMD-closebracket) which I use a million times a week, it seems. (My old outliner Opal uses the metaphor or sisters/daughters/aunts so starting a subtask/checklist is CMD-D for ‘New Daughter’.)

I’m often in a thought or task and I want to create substasks/checklists for the item I’m thinking about - it’s the way I think and work. The outliners I’ve always used always had a keyboard command to do that. (I even added it as a toolbar icon on OmniOutliner.) It just seems so strange that Todoist doesn’t think people want to quickly make lists inside items, but instead seems to make you create a Shift-Enter into sister-task and _then_ indent it to make it a subtask. Just an added bit of friction that (1) maybe I’d get used to, or (2) might end up being a deal-killer considering how much I create checklists and subsubtasks for ideas.

Thank you for the reference, Ken. I didn’t know about the star trick. Definitely useful for those of us how like to mix lots of notes with their todos and projects.

Some positive feedback about this company and paid subscriptions

I rather foolishly forgot to cancel my yearly subscription as i had not used it for 6 months and was not planning on using it in the foreseeable future

I received an sms from my bank that the money had been paid to Todoist and I got on line to see if I could get a refund
There was an item in the help section and I wrote a brief note and submitted it requesting a refund

Within a very short period if time I received a positive reply, no problem, they were sad to see me go but a refund would appear in the next few days

Based on this experience I can definitely trust this company in the future
