I’m new to Dynalist and really like it but I find that I too often have to move my fingers from home position to get things done like using shortcuts for editing and navigation. One competitor’s tool is much better about this. I’ve not listed their name here in order not to give them free advertising on your forum. That tool includes some Vim-based keystrokes for navigation and moving items up/down/indent/outdent. This makes it easy for the user to “sculpt” a list of items into a hierarchical outline. You might also extend this capability to document and folder handling as well. I could envision using, say, “^” (or some other user-selected key) to enter a shortcut mode in which the keys would all act as action keys to move items up/down/indent/outdent and navigate.
Feel free to contact me directly for the specific competitor or for other questions.
Since I first wrote this post, I’ve noticed the Keymap section of Settings. Could we just get Cmd plus the right/left arrow keys as alternative indent/outdent shortcuts?
