WorkFlowy’s Secret Alt+Shift+0 Keyboard Shortcut

(and how to fix it Windows)

Update 12/8/2015: WorkFlowy has changed these shortcuts for Windows users, but left them the same for Mac and Linux users. Chromebook users are reporting problems.

WorkFlowy has great keyboard shortcuts, including a handy hidden pair that allow you to quickly navigate between siblings in your WorkFlowy outline. They are great for reviewing a list of items, in all of WorkFlowy’s zoomed and focused splendor. And if you use WorkFlowy, you may have list or two to review.

Mac & Linux:

  • Ctrl+Shift+0 goes down the list
  • Ctrl+Shift+9 goes up the list

Windows:

  • Alt+Shift+0 goes down the list
  • Alt+Shift+9 goes up the list

Let’s have GIF Master Frank of Do Way, Way More in WorkFlowy fame show you:

Warning! This pair is addictive.

If you use Windows you may discover Ctrl+Shift+0 doesn’t work, meaning you can only go “up” your list… and that pushes this tip into the “not so handy” column. Here’s how to fix it:


* Hit the Windows Key and type *”control”*
* Open the Control Panel desktop app
* Under: *Clock, Language, and Region* Click: *Change Input Methods*
* On the left Click: *Advanced settings*
* Under: *Switching input methods*, Click: *Change language bar hotkeys*
* With *Between input languages* selected, Click: *Change Key Sequence..*
* Click: both *Not Assigned* radio buttons, and Click: *OK*
* Click: *Apply* and *OK*
* Restart the computer

  1. Thanks. This adjustment to the Control Panel worked for a while, but neither shortcut works now. I’ve tried on all browsers. It has me beat. I wonder if it was killed by a Windows update.

    1. I’m having the exact same issue. Here’s what I know: pretty sure it’s Windows; don’t think it is update related, but not certain. Having the same issue with two Windows machines, one on the Insider builds.

      Reasonably certain it is not a browser or WorkFlowy issue, because the shortcuts work fine on my iPhone/Safari with a bluetooth keyboard. When I was troubleshooting this originally, I got some weird results with this setting, but the ‘9’ shortcut always worked. At this point, I’m beat too.
