Dragging list items into documents


My workflow relies heavily on moving quickly captured Inbox items to various files to organize them. I’m a longtime user and rely on the Move keyboard shortcut, but it would be fantastic if I could drag a list item into a file in the “My files” pane on the left. For me, converting an item to a file (the default behavior) is far less useful. Please consider a change here, for example a spring loaded hover such that holding over a file while dragging would allow dropping into a file rather than alongside it. Not to lay it on too thick here, but right now this is literally the only “flaw” I run into with Dynalist. Keep up the great work.


If you’re used to move hotkey, why would you willingly use mouse drag instead? Maybe I misunderstand.


Great question. The reason is that I have a few similarly named lists, sublists and files so the autocomplete list in the “move” interaction requires scrolling to select the right file. If I drag I know exactly where something is going. Hope that clarifies and I should have included this bit originally.
