I suggest you ...

User defined hotkeys (keyboard shortcuts)

I would like to see a "keyboard shortcuts" option in the preferences menu that allowed the user to use any desired key for an action.

For instance i would prefer to use <cntrl-UP> to increase a task priority instead of <cntrl-I>. Or assign <a> to open attachments...

Thanks again for the great software. I'll pledge 5 EU for implementation.

        Global hotkeys would be extremely useful. Of course with ability to detect combination with shift, alt, control, WinKey...

        I love the way that I can set keyboard shortcuts in Claws-mail. All I have to is use the mouse to get to the item that I want and pres the desired shortcut. Immediate effect.

        It'd be great to have this in Task Coach too :)

        Thanks for the best task management tool I've ever seen!

        +1, especially if the windows meta key can be used (For example I'd like [Win]+[T] for open new task regardless of what application currently has focus).

        I couldn't agree more on this one. I know that I can modify the file manually, but a nicely designed graphical option would be a huge improvement. Great work on this project though!

        I wish I can change the "close dialogue" button because the current default key for that (escape) is actually used by my input method in place of the backspace key. That means whenever I make a typing mistake, I'll have to retype the whole thing.

        TaskCoach increases productivity and efficiency of my work. I think ability to use shortcut key is very important to boost up the speed and increase efficiency of using TaskCoach itself.

        It would be nice if something as simple as pressing <enter> would allow you to quickly capture a new task...

        I use Ctr+Shift to switch keyboard layouts so every time i press Ctrl+Shift+Insert i get the layouts switched :(
