How to switch between notes with keyboard shortcuts?

Recommended Posts

Is there any method to switch between notes within the same notebook by using the keyboard only?

Search for the appropriate notebook.

Position the cursor on the first note in the Note List. 

 

Use the down key to examine each note.

I use the "Vertical Note View" which lets me see a lot of the content in each note.

 

If I want to edit the note itself, I press Tab twice, then press Enter.

Nice! Hadn't thought of that before... On Windows desktop, if I hit Tab 3 times I get to edit a note.

 

If one wants to switch between notes in presentation mode, one hits Ctrl + right/ left arrows to go back and forth.

I am using Evernote Windows version 5.8.5.7193 (275193) Public.
3 tabs in a row don't work for me.
 
Start at title in the Note List
  • 1st Tab - moves to Search Field
  • 2nd Tab - moves to title in the Note Panel
  • 3rd Tab - returns back to title in the Note List

  • Enter - move to body of note in the Note Panel

Interesting... 3 Tabs get me from:

 

Note list > Search bar > Note title > Note body 

 

I'm also on 5.8.5.7193 (275193) Public.

Thanks for the reply. When I asked for keyboard only usage, I really meant without using the cursor! You can see how handy this feature is when you search Google for example. You can open any page from the search results without using the cursor. If this feature is not available in Evernote, it would be very good to add it.

I think I found the hack for you. When you're in edit mode, use the shortcut to go back to the note's title, then "shift+Tab" to go back Note list.
