Things Quick Tip: Keyboard Shortcuts for TagsEvan Travers
Things allows you to assign keyboard shortcuts to Tags.
This adds two bindings:
With a task highlighted and press
⌃+<key>, Things.app will toggle that tag on and off.
On any view, you can press
⌃⌥+<key>and Things.app will filter that view to that tag.
I tend to not set tons of these, because they conflict with my beloved Readline shortcuts. I do use it for three tags:
Essential, which is just that. The One Thing that I need to do that day. I also have bindings for tags I use for Focus level:
I use the “toggle a tag” binding infrequently now. I typically handle all the tags at once in the inbox at the end of the day… and @culturedcode added the feature where you can select multiple items and press
⌘⇧+T to tag multiple to-dos.
⌃⌥+<key> filtering shortcut is still very helpful, but increasingly I lean on using x-callback-urls to build filtered views for certain kinds of tasks.
