Common search workflow and keyboard shortcuts

Recommended Posts

I have recently moved to a Mac, and wondering if I am missing something with the keyboard shortcuts. I try to avoid using mouse as much as I can.

Let's say I search using the global search (opt-cmd-E) for some key words, and it gives me 3 documents. At this point, I expect to use the down arrow key to get into the list of those 3 docs so I can open or edit them. Pretty simple and natural search behaviour.

On my mac, after the search, the only way I can find to get to the list of docs matching the search is by tabbing through the Favorites bar and the list of notebooks on the left side, a total of 11 tabs. The funny thing is that even if I hide the Favs bar, I still have to tab the same number of times!!

Am I missing something here? I am not sure if it worked on Windows exactly smoothly but I think there was a faster way to get to the list than 11 tabs.

I went through the list of defined shortcuts here:

It doesn't show anything for jumping to the list either. And it seems some of the mentioned kbd shortcuts don't work.

Can anyone comment if I am doing something wrong here, or is this a product improvement that the dev team can look at?

We need more Shortcuts. :)

Especially "Open in seperate window" (in german "Notiz in eigenem Fenster öffnen").

joker, agree on more / better thought out shortcuts.

For the "open in separate window", assuming you are on Mac OS, you can code your own shortcut from System Preferences -> Keyboard shortcuts -> Application Shortcuts. I have it set to cmd-enter.

Haider - for me, this does not work. Probably, because "open in separate window" is not a Menu topic, but only accessible using "right click" on the note. Did you really implement this solution? - Please advice.

Well, it used to work. Developers, in their infinite wisdom, have taken out this from the menu so you can't do this anymore.
