Color Labels Keyboard Shortcuts: Ctrl+Shift+ 1-6 not working in PC app

Steps to reproduce

Starting from scratch, what are the steps to make the bug happen? The fewer the steps, the better.

With the cursor on an item, pressing Ctrl+Shift+ 1-6 to add color label to the line item.

Expected result

What do you expect to see after carrying out the steps above?

Line item to have color label.

Actual result

Instead of the expected result, what happened?

Nothing happened. (also I have checked this is not a shortcut used by any other program).


Which operating system are you using?
Which browser are you using?
If you’re using a desktop or mobile app, what’s the version number of Dynalist?
Are you using any third-party scripts for Dynalist, e.g. PowerPack?

I am using the Windows app. (Not web or Chrome version)
Dynalist 1.3.6.

Additional comments

Can you tell me where you found Ctrl+Shift+1-6 as shortcuts for those?

See “Color labels” section of this page:

There is a shortcut set by default for cycle through the colors:
Toggle color label Ctrl/Cmd+Shift+L

Hi Shida,
Thanks, Ctrl+Shift+L worked.
I had done a Google search and it was from this link:,6%20to%20apply%20color%20labels.

Ah you’re right, we should go back and correct that.

I think it was removed soon after it was added since it conflicted with some system level shortcuts.
