Command N - Shortcut Not Working

notes

#1

What I did: command n shortcut is grayed out in menu

What happened: when I type command n a web browser opens up?

What I expected: for a new note to appear on any desktop


#2

We’re sorry to hear that, can you send us a series of screenshots of what you describe? Are you using version 1.4?


#3

Yes 1.4


#4

This is because you have On the Agenda selected and the program can’t determine in which project you would want a new note without more info. Try selecting a project in the sidebar and it should work, or alternatively use the plus button in the top right of the notes view.


#5

I see so you can’t create a note from any other application and have it dump into Today or On The Agenda? Wouldn’t it be handy to be able to use the command n shortcut in other programs?


#6

CMD-N would not work well as a global shortcut, because most apps use it for “New Something”.

We have some ideas for quickly adding to Agenda when using other apps. Stay tuned for that!
