    Hi Joel,

    I can't quite visualize what you're describing. What comes to mind for me is hitting the down arrow... but you're most likely not referring to that. Would you expand/ attach a mockup outline and explain from where to where you'd like to move?

    Here is a two minute Loom video demo.

    Hi Frank. I read Joel's request as referring to the following workflow:

    1. Zoom in on a particular to-do item
    2. Do it.
    3. Zoom out.
    4. Move down to the next item.
    5. Zoom in on it.

    IIUC Joel is proposing a single command that would combine steps 3,4, and 5 with one keystroke instead of three.

    As a newcomer, my first impression was that the proposed command would replace five keystrokes, because my first instinct was to Expand before zooming in and Collapse after zooming out, but as I play with it I see that Zooming in and out makes Expand and Collapse unnecessary, so seems less pressing from my perspective (not necessarily from Joel's).

    Thanks @JDM,

    What you're looking for, then, is:

    Alt+Shift+9/0 (Windows)

    Cmd+Shift+9/0 (Mac)

    Hi @joel,

    For some reason your Loom video went to spam... I just watched it now and I believe the above shortcuts are what you're looking for :-)

    Thanks, Frank, indeed that does it! For discoverability, perhaps instead of "Jump to next/previous sibling" which sounds like the sibling of the bullet where the cursor is located (as is typical), the keyboard shortcut text could be "Jump to next/previous header sibling" (or whatever the correct Wordflowy terminology is) ?

    Yes... "jump to next/ previous zoomed-in sibling" :-)

    Apologies if this is bikeshedding, but since beginner eyes can be useful but are short-lived: "zoomed-in sibling" still seems unclear about what level of bullet is meant, I guess because it still sounds like the next sibling of the current bullet, that you can see in the zoom. This variation may be too wordy for the keyboard shortcut display, but "...sibling of zoomed bullet" or even "...sibling of zoom" ? (That last one sounds like a movie franchise!)

    Well, you do see the dilemma then of finding a perfectly universal name...

    We do have this shortcut at the bottom of the keyboard shortcut panel... and when someone tries it, they'll understand what it is...

    > when someone tries it, they'll understand what it is...

    If they happen to be zoomed, otherwise not. 

    So I do still suggest including the word "zoom" or "zoomed" in the shortcut description, however it's worded.

    Thanks for your consideration.
