Allows the last editing action to be undone. If the focus is on an edit control then the last edit change is undone. Otherwise the last tasklist edit is undone.
Many levels of undo are supported, but there is a limit. If too many undesired changes have been made, exit without saving the tasklist, and consider going back to a recent backup. Work in Progress. Add info.
Allows a previously undone operation to be redone.
Edit Task Title
Initiates in-place editing of the task title. This is also accomplished by single-clicking on the task title text. If you single-click click after the text, the edit area will not open. You need to double-click if clicking after the text.
This operation is disabled if more than one task is selected.
Other Task Attributes
Opens a reminder page to instruct ToDoList to remind you when a task is about to begin or is about to be due. You can also specify a sound to be played.
Clears the existing reminder for the selected task.
Inserts the current date (formatted according to your regional settings in Control Panel) into the focused edit control (typically the comments field).
Inserts only the current time.
Insert Date & Time
Inserts the current date and time formatted according to your PC regional settings. This is also called a timestamp, and is very convenient to log when a comment is being written. See Preferences for related settings.
Note: Insert date/time options are disabled when focus is not on a control where the feature applies.
Runs the spell checker on the selected task's title text.
Runs the spell checker on the selected task's comment text.
Runs the spell checker on the task titles of the active tasklist.
Copies the selected task(s) to the Windows clipboard and then removes it from the tasklist.
Copies the selected task(s) to the Windows clipboard.
Note: the titles of the selected tasks are also copied to the Windows clipboard, separated by new lines.
Paste as Subtask of Selected Task
Pastes the last copied tasks as subtasks of the currently selected task.
Paste after Selected Task
Pastes the last copied tasks as siblings after the currently selected task.
Notes: When copying and pasting tasks, the time estimates and actual time spent are also pasted, which may be undesirable. To change values for the pasted tasks, select the pasted tasks and then change their values in the appropriate edit field - all selected tasks will be equally affected.
Copy/Paste does not affect time logged to the tasklist's related .csv file. That seems obvious of course, but given the above where time spent is duplicated on paste, it's important to recognize that after a paste the time logged in the CSV file will not be in balance with the .tdl file.
Paste as Reference
Pastes the last copied tasks as siblings after the currently selected task - but as Reference Tasks.
The notes on pasting also apply here. See Reference Tasks for more details.
Delete Selected Task
Deletes the currently selected task(s). DEL hotkey does this quickly.
Note: You will be prompted to confirm the deletion unless you have disabled this feature in the preferences. Note: If the task being deleted has subtasks, these will also be deleted.
Delete All Tasks
Deletes all of the tasks in the active task list - does not just delete filtered/visible tasks. You will be prompted to confirm the deletion unless you disable this feature in the preferences.
Selects all tasks in the active tasklist.
Displays a dialog to search for tasks specific attribute values. The results are displayed in a modeless dialog which can remain open as you navigate to each task. For details, see the Find Tasks Page.
Sets the focus to the Quick Find combo box in the toolbar. Once there simply start typing and as you type ToDoList will match what you are typing to either task titles or task comments.
Once you have finished typing you can step forward through all the occurrences that can be found. (Use the F3 key to do this quickly.)
Alternatively you can step backwards. (Use Shift+F3 to do this quickly.)
