- Multiple selection in the task list.
- Archive completed tasks (to done.txt), either on command or automatically.
- Preserves Windows or Unix line endings in the todo.txt file for cross-platform compatibility.
- Undo/redo support.
- Copy/paste functionality for task list.
- Displays general metadata (task counts, etc.) about the task list.


## A task list that *you* control

Your task list is a plain text file, not some proprietary format owned by a company or locked to a specific application.

## A simple and timeless format

Plain text is the simplest file format there is. It will always be accessible, by some kind of application, forever.

## Few rules to learn

Learn only a few simple formatting rules (which SwiftoDo will take care of for you) to indicate task priority, task completion, and so on.

## A GTD-ready system

The todo.txt format was built with Getting Things Done in mind. It supports projects (which begin with a “+”) and contexts (which begin with a “@“).

## Use alongside any app on any platform

This app plays nicely with file sync software. It saves changes instantly, and reloads the file when changes are detected from external sources.

What's New in Version 2.4.3

Bug fixes:

- Keyboard shortcuts such as Command+Left and Command+Right (for remove priority) were being fired when a task is being edited, which rendered some of the common system text editing-related keyboard shortcuts to not work as expected.
