I keep running into a real user interface issue with OF 2
I am very well trained from OF 1 that I can select a single action list or a project and if I press the return key I will get a new action under that project. In 2.0 the same keystroke creates a new project. Is there any way to change the preference for that? I’ve looked but can’t find it.
PS Yes, I know I can use the command N key combination but that’s not what is in my muscle memory.
I already have it set to Classic. What it does is create a new Project, not a new Action in the selected/highlighted project.
Detailed steps to reproduce the issue:
Have any project view perspective open in the main window. I have one that is set to show all active projects with remaining action. Select a project in the sidebar. The project is then the only one showing in the main window. Press return. You do not get a new action in that project, you get a new project int eh sidebar.
Now try it in OF 1.10.6
In that one the above sequence will create a new blank action under the selected project ready for editing.
While it isn’t possible to change the default in the sidebar currently, a few other options to try would be using the outline view to add tasks with classic mode turned on, using keyboard shortcuts (Command+N), or using the context menu (Control+Click) to add a new action item from the sidebar. This isn’t exactly what you are looking for, but one of those methods might be a slightly better fit.
