How do you switch focus between a Note and the Note List with keyboard (Evernote for Mac)?


Recommended Posts

Hi all

Really simple question: if I'm writing in a note and want to switch focus to the note list and go up/down, what is the keyboard route? 

And vice versa, say I select/highlight a note in note list how do I quickly jump the cursor into that note to edit with they keyboard? (Rather than clicking in the note with the mouse)?

See my beautiful diagram below.

I think it may involve the Tab key but not sure...

Thanks!

From there, tab switches focus to the note content

These keyboard shortcuts can be adjusted in the Mac > System Preferences

On Mac v10.4.3 I can't find a keyboard shortcut to switch from note list to editor. I can Cmd + \ and jump from editor to note list but not the other way around. I've tried tabbing through but it goes around all the navigation, never into the note editor.

I really don't want to have to use mouse, plus this is an a18y issue. Please help.

+1 for this. You used to be able to go note list => editor with Cmd & L, Tab. But they've removed Cmd & L from latest version. Been desperately searching for a way to do this but no dice. That's progress.
