    I voted for this because I'm making decisions to NOT do something, and I want a record that I decided to not do it. If there's another way to handle this, please let me know.

    I also strongly desire Strikethrough formatting. I don't want to mark something as completed, I want to strike it out signifying that a change has been made, not that it was completed.

    Agreed. I would like to have Strikethrough formatting in order to see a complete list. Once deleted or completed, I can no longer see an item, which is great once the whole task is complete, but I also need a way to show what was partially done, without waiting for my daily report.

    Strikethrough formatting would be a great addition.  I often have a semi-completed item for which some info will have to changed, but I don’t want to lose the old parts.  It would help if I could strikethrough the now obsolete parts, while leaving the valid parts and still having the strikethrough parts to remind me of the original arguments.  Please do this, team!

    There is already a function for it! On a mac, you press cmd + enter. On a windows, it's ctrl + fn.

    I just tried that on my windows, and it didn't work. I highlighted the item and hit ctrl + fn and it didn't do anything :-(

    Hi Jennifer, 

    What Signe is talking about is not the strikethrough as requested on this thread... it's WorkFlowy's way of completing items (and hiding them if you want)... which does strike items through... but does not strike through selected/ highlighted text. The keyboard shortcut for that is Ctrl+Enter. If you test that out, you'll see what I mean...

    Just saw this cause I had the same question.

    Ctrl + Enter totally does it! Thanks Frank!

    Still an issue.  As noted previously - 

    "I also strongly desire Strikethrough formatting. I don't want to mark something as completed, I want to strike it out signifying that a change has been made, not that it was completed."

    +1 for Strikethrough (or strike-thru) text formatting. Switching over from Evernote at first I was wondering why CTRL + T wasn't working 😂😅. Ctrl + Enter is nice too....

    This would be a nice addition. Workflowy's tagline is "organize your brain", and through that lens, there are plenty of situations where you would want to strike something through to mark that the task/information is done, no longer important, obsolete, updated, etc., without necessarily deleting that information. The task completed functionality works for certain purposes, but doesn't work at all if you're using Workflowy to organize notes rather than simple bullet points.

    being able to strikethrough an item without completing it would fill a need for which I don't know another solution. Sure I could train my brain that blue text is like a strikethrough, but it's not the same. Especially if sharing a list with someone else.
