5.3.3.1 Reprioritizing Items

There are three ways to change a todo item’s priority:

r

Raise the current item’s priority by one, exchanging its position in the list with that of the item directly above it (todo-raise-item-priority).

l

Lower the current item’s priority by one, exchanging its position in the list with that of the item directly below it (todo-lower-item-priority).

#

Prompt for a number and relocate the item to the corresponding position in the list (todo-set-item-priority). For example, entering 3 at the prompt makes the item the third in the category, i.e., gives it third highest priority; all lower priority items are pushed down by one. You can also pass the desired priority as a numeric prefix argument, e.g., 3 # gives the item third highest priority without prompting. (Prefix arguments have no effect with r or l.)
