Keyboard shortcut for 'duplicate task'

joerg.rieckermann says:
This would be a very useful feature (and not only for all GTD-ers out there) to have as a shortcut. Creating tasks with the same characteristics (List, Tags) on the fly would be such a gain!

Please consider!

While not a direct keyboard shortcut, you can now access the 'More' dropdown with the '.' keyboard shortcut, and then use the arrows to reach 'Duplicate task'. Hope this helps!

+1 Please consider, I would find this a productive & time saving feature.

Many of my tasks act as a seed which spawn or morph into new tasks that retain many of the attributes (tags, location, list etc...) of the original. It would be great to have a keyboard shortcut to speed this process along.

With this, you could arguably solve the requests for dependencies as well. I typically put follow-up dependencies in name of the task. I then duplicate, complete, and modify the name of the task. This would save a mouse trip to the drop-down menu.

I am a relatively new user, but it looks like my system will be heavily dependent on tags. Duplicating a task has been a great time saver, but having a keyboard shortcut would really turbo charge this feature. Please :))
