    Yep - this is a fatal conflict which can't be resolved without remapping the key commands to not interfere with Mac OS commands. It was fine before today's update, so I suggest there needs to be another update as soon as poss.

    I've found the same confusing behaviour.

    "Command + ←" AND “Command + →” are well-established natural text shortcut which function across the majority of programs on MacOS to move to the beginning/end of the given line. Has really thrown me off now that I'm no longer able to use those. :(

    I was already using "Command + <" and "Command + >" to move into/out of a given bullet point - and those were working very well! Just not sure you need 2 ways to do that.

    I was using ctrl-left and ctrl-right to zoom in and out, and ctrl-shift-L/R arrows to move items up and down. Was great. Now it's broken 😭

    I noticed this change right away, and realized how frequently & automatically I use those shortcuts to jump to the start/end of a line. Looking forward to an update to fix this!

    Please take this issue seriously. Every additional day that I have to deal with this adds a dent in the overall enjoyment I get from using Workflowy.

    Never mind! I just refreshed my page today (which, I admit, I don't do regularly), and looks like the CMD + [left/right arrow] shortcut for zoom in/out has been disabled (at least on mac), and proper jumping to beginning/end of line functionality has been restored.

    Thanks, Workflowy devs!
