We’ve just unleashed new fresh and crunchy Swift To-Do List 7.30, straight from the oven. Do you smell the heavenly scent? Mmm.
The new version brings you in-place (in-line) editing. In-place editing allows you to edit tasks directly in the task-view, without opening the Edit Task window. Many of you have requested this feature.
Other news: We are still working hard on the online synchronization and sharing feature. It is coming along nicely, and you can expect it soon. Version 7.30 is just a little gift from us to you while you wait.
How to edit task in-place
It’s quite straight forward. It works the same way as in Windows Explorer.
- Select the task
- Click the text in the column you want to edit
For example, if you want to change a task priority from “High” to “Low”, then simply select the task, then click the text “High” in the task’s priority column. A drop-down will be shown, allowing you to choose a different priority. Click “Low”. That’s it.
It works the same way for due dates, start dates, time estimates, etc. All editable fields can be edited in-place.
More about in-place editing
You can always use the “Escape” key to cancel the in-place editing, or the “Enter” key to confirm it. You can also simply click somewhere else during the in-place edit – that will confirm the edit as well.
The in-place editing can be undone using Edit – Undo.
If you prefer quicker one-click in-place editing, you can go to Options – Task-View, and check “Single click inline editing”. When it’s checked, you can edit tasks without selecting them first.
