Is there a keyboard shortcut that moves Trello cards up or down in list order?

I want to prioritize cards without dragging and dropping.

Currently the feature you want is not implemented. The only way to prioritise cards without drag and drop is moving all cards out of the list and move card with the highest priority first back to the list.

    Yes... we need that feature. Can't wait to have it. Also it's strange that Trello supports J and K keys, but for left and right only arrows. And yet it is still so awesome :)

    @Agzam J and K just select different cards (equivalent to and ), < and > actually move the selected card.

  • But why not use shift + J and shift + K to move up and down cards? Apr 15, 2015 at 15:48

The Shortcusts for Trello Chrome Extension lets you move cards to the top. It's open source and there is a GitHub Issue on it to add shortcut for Card Move Up/Down. (Any JS developers willing to pull this one off?)


I actually recently discovered Dynalist which allows me to hold the Ctrl button and arrow keys to move the priority. Highly recommended!
