  • To make a sub-topic: Alt-Enter, Alt-Right arrow
  • You can move a (sub-)topic up or down the list: Alt-Up arrow; Alt-Down arrow

  • To create a check box: Type – [ ]
    • You can mark the check box: Ctrl-C Ctrl-C
    • In the main item, type [/] and then Ctrl-C Ctrl-C.  It will now show the fraction of checkboxes marked.
    • Alternatively, type [%] and then Ctrl-C Ctrl-C. It will now show the percentage of checkboxes marked.
  • Set a deadline: Ctrl-C Ctrl-D.
