What I’m trying to do

create new hotkey

Is there a way to create a new hotkey which allows me to paste in text such as “&nbsp” into obsidian?

You could use a separate tool such as AutoHotkey, Keyboard Maestro, etc. I’m pretty sure some plugins could even accomplish this, but using a dedicated tool designed for this sort of thing may be more straightforward and useful in the long run. Good luck!

Yes, that’s exactly what Templater does.

Create a template (for example just the text  ), and then assign it to a hotkey.


Make a template using the Templates core plugin (different from the Templater community plugin which you could also use) and optionally assign it to a hotkey using the Hotkeys For Templates community plugin.


Thank you all for the suggestions, nice solution!
