Skwire,  I can't figure out how to move checklists up and down in the panel.
I thought if I clicked a checklist to select it that I could then use the regular up and down arrows to move it, but that didn't work.

 - works with the Control key (+ the arrow key/s).
(This also works for entries in a list.)

OK -
I was testing on my laptop where I seldom use sChecklist - the version I have is not up-to-date:
with version 1.0.5 build 1 -- it works with the checklists on Windows 8.1
I updated to version 1.0.9 build 1 -- and it no longer works with checklists, as you report.

I like it very much. I'd like to see keyboard shortcuts for jumping back and forth between Checklists and Entries. You can currently do this with Tab (or Tab plus down arrow), and Shift Tab, but the following would be nice to have:

Jump from selected Checklist to top Entry item: Ctrl + right arrow.

Jump from selected Entry item to parent Checklist: Ctrl + left arrow.

Those would match the Ctrl + up/down arrow shortcuts you already have.

Hi, howbrad, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.   :)

Jump from selected Checklist to top Entry item: Ctrl + right arrow.
Jump from selected Entry item to parent Checklist: Ctrl + left arrow.

Here you are:

Website | Download
v1.1.2 - 2015-01-13
    + Ctrl+Left now focuses the checklist list.  Ctrl+Right now focuses the
      entries list.  If nothing is currently selected in the entries list, the
      first entry is selected.  (Thanks, howbrad)

Hi there.

I understand that copying and pasting entry data (Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V) is kind of like using an internal clipboard, and copying and pasting to and from clipboard (Ctrl+Shift+C and Ctrl+Shift+V) means using the Windows clipboard. There doesn't seem to be a way to paste data into a previous entry? It always pastes into a new entry, even if I am editing a previous entry, the cursor is at the end of it, and I use either Ctrl+V or Ctrl+Shift+V.

Thanks for the report; I'll see if I can fix this.  In the meantime, you can use the old-school hotkeys:

Cut: Shift+Delete
Copy: Ctrl+Insert
Paste: Shift+Insert

That works! I should make a list of all the keyboard shortcuts and post it somewhere...

Jody, what about an option to hide checked entries?

Say you have a long checklist and you don't want to sort it, but only want to see what isn't yet checked?

A view-toggle button to show/hide checked items would be a boon.

Due to the way that the programs saves and loads checklists, this would be rather difficult.   :(

Yeah, I know it's just a text file underneath.  Maybe you could add at the end of the file a little section with flags.

Like this:
1|Fix this computer
1|Fix that computer
0|Solve PICNIC error in Office 2
1|Buy new server
0|Fix wall socket
Flags|1|2|3

Then each list could have it's own special settings, such as remember sorting manner and whether to display checked items.

Drag&Drop across lists - that would be awesome, to quickly re-organize stuff and outsource it to another list.
ATM this only works via Copy&Paste, then going back to the source, hopefully recalling the entire selection, and deleting it.

Also, I struggled a bit with the right mouse menu, took me a while to realize that "entry data" refers to exactly what it says, the data within the entry, not the entry item itself. It was not immediately obvious because using Ctrl+C to copy/paste the selected item elsewhere does work as well, although it seemed iffy (you have to exit and restart to see it actually did work)

As an idea: Moving Ctrl Shift C/V up to Insert Entry, to make it obvious where it belongs and keep it together within the same seperator section.

Hmmm...I'm not sure how you'd go about dragging and dropping since you can only view one checklist at a time.  You should be able to cut entries and then copy them into a new list.  However, I just found a bug where cut entries are restored to the original list when selecting a new list.  I will fix this.

Also, I struggled a bit with the right mouse menu, took me a while to realize that "entry data" refers to exactly what it says, the data within the entry, not the entry item itself. It was not immediately obvious because using Ctrl+C to copy/paste the selected item elsewhere does work as well, although it seemed iffy (you have to exit and restart to see it actually did work)

Based on what you're saying, I think you have this backwards.  The "Cut/Copy/Paste entry data" options manipulate the entire entry (check state included), not the data within the entry.  If you want to copy the textual data within an entry, you have to use the "Copy to clipboard" item in that menu.  Perhaps if I rename as per the following, it will allay some confusion?

Cut entry data -> Cut entries
Copy entry data -> Copy entries
Paste entry data -> Paste entries

Copy to clipboard -> Copy text to clipboard
Paste from clipboard -> Paste text from clipboard

Thoughts?

v1.1.4 - 2015-02-18
    * Renamed a few of the Edit menu entries.  (Thanks, ScreenManiac)
    * Attempting to paste entries while the checklist list is focused now pastes
      into that checklist's list.
    ! Cutting from one checklist and switching to another would erroneously
      restore the cut entries to the original checklist.

Many thanks. Much better now.  :Thmbsup:

And yes, you are right, I was on the wrong track to start with.  :-[  Only now do I really grasp it.

I can do without drag&drop. Re-organizing lists has become easy enough thanks to cut&pastes.  :up:
My initial confusion came about because of that bug you corrected. It didn't seem to really cut the entries, they were still there, which made me think I was not using the right context menu. Anyway, all is fine now.
