    Hi Mark!

    We don't currently have a shortcut to have one's cursor jump to the parent node or root node or any specific node :-(

    Hi Frank,

    Thanks for the update.

    Do you know if this feature is on the product roadmap?

    Thanks,

    Mark

    Hi Mark,

    There has been no talk of such a shortcut... since I think I've only heard 2 or 3 requests ever for anything similar. Let's see if this thread picks up steam :-)

    I'd like this shortcut if possible.
    Or, when in a list, a shortcut to collapse the parent. That would automatically move the cursor to the parent.

    +1, this seems like a no-brainer.

    Maybe not many have asked for this, but us folk who like to keep their fingers on their keyboards will use it like crazy once it's implemented :)

    a sorely missed shortcut indeed.

    Yes, or even better a clickable icon so it's as easy to navigate up to parents as it is to go to children.

    in about every treelist control (like the directory tree in windows file explorer) i've come across you tap left arrow twice and have collapsed the parent. vim has za to toggle current fold-level collapse/expansion. it should be considered a standard function when working with nested lists and would make it significantly easier to navigate in workflowy.

    Hm. 10-month-back Frank has no recollection of what 2-year-back Frank said. https://workflowy.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360046595531/comments/360011195332. It's mind-boggling that such a shortcut does not exist.
