Key Modifier to Prevent New Checkbox on New Line

When you’re typing on a line that has a checkbox and you hit enter to jump to a new line, Everdo automatically adds a dash to make the next line a checkbox line too.

I like that feature a lot and think that it makes sense most of the time, but there are still plenty of times when I don’t want to to add a checkbox to the next line and it gets to be a hassle deleting them all the time.

Seems like it would be much more fluid and streamlined if there was a keyboard modifier you could hold down when you press enter that would prevent a checkbox from being added on the new line. Obviously this is a low priority feature, and I can’t think of a way to make it work on the mobile app, but it would still be very welcome on the desktop apps.

I think the correct way to fix this is to remove the empty checkbox after Enter is pressed twice.


Hitting Enter twice will give you two blank checkboxes. In most programs hitting Enter once will give you a new list item and hitting it twice ends the list. That’s not the case with Everdo. Every time you hit enter you get another line with the dash and it never ends on its own unless you backspace to remove the dash before hitting Enter the second time.

That makes sense, double enter flows a bit easier than a modifier.

It is indeed annoying. I will see if this can be quickly added to the next update’s scope.
