Easy linking between lists
When working with multiple lists, you inevitably come to a situation when you want to reference one list from the another, i.e. create a link between lists.
For a long time, Checkvist allows creating such links using a wiki-like syntax [list: | referenced_list_id]. But using such syntax requires quite some efforts — finding out the ID of the referenced list, looking into the reference for the syntax, typing the text, saving to make sure the syntax is correct. Not nice.
Of course, there is also the “Extract list” command (xx shortcut). This command allows to extract any part of the list as a separate list and propagate existing sharing permissions. Much better, but what if you already have a list you want to link to?
From now on you can just type lst: to get autocompletion popup for selecting a target list name. If you have an existing link, you can choose its target the similar way, just place the cursor after the [list: and the list chooser will appear:
Bonus: creating linksShortly after implementing lst: we thought it may be a good idea to use a similar approach to create ordinary links. So, you can type lnk: to get a simple popup for inserting links:
- Now you can delete a list from its page, not only from the index page
- Scroller was added to LL/MM popups
- Add support for outlook:// URLs in links (thx Pat Spencer)
- Allow | to be present in link text embedded via [link:] (tnx Ricardo Salta)
- Fix ‘dd’ shortcut from the index page (tnx Alan Bristow)
- Several UI fixes
