When I edit a timestamp using c-c , or similar, I find that

some other purpose?

Therefore the arrow keys seem free, for at least some users.

At the same time, shift-arrow keys work to edit the
minibuffer overlay feedback date, but they do so in a
different way from timestamp editing in the
outline buffer (up and right arrows mean earlier).  They are
intuitive for editing the calendar.

At least for me, this would work best: arrow keys navigate
the calendar, while shift arrow keys change the minibuffer.

Hi Samuel,

the date/time prompt is minibuffer input and should be fully editable.
I feel that I cannot deviate too much from what people expect
from a minibuffer.  I did consider using the arrow keys for
something else, but in the end decided against it.

Having said that, I can give you a hook to install any keys you like
in that prompt - - - - OK, `org-read-date-minibuffer-setup-hook'.

Then shift arrows would work for the minibuffer as they do
in the outline buffer, and arrows would work as expected in
the calendar.

Has this been considered before?
