One less keystroke to create check box please!

-[ ] Sample
produces a check list item.

And in fact -[] also works!

But, how about even fewer keystrokes, as the dash seems superfluous anyway?

This would be cool for faster keyboarding:

[] Sample
produces a check list item.

We chose that because it is already used by many web apps. Seemed better to try to stick with a convention where there is one.

Note that there is also the keyboard shortcut CMD-SHIFT-C.


Fair enough to use the convention, but you already allow

-[] as an alternative to -[ ]

So why not add [] as well? (It’s also what the web app Quip allows!)

We’ll consider it. Guess it could be an alternative.
