When writing, we can link to a note that does not yet exist, and then follow that link and create the note by pressing
Alt + Enter, or
Ctrl/Cmd + Alt + Enter to open the newly created note in a new pane.
In both cases though, focus leaves the current note. It would be great if there was a way to look at the link under the cursor and create the note if it doesn’t exist, without opening that file in the editor or creating a new pane etc.
Alt + Shift + Enter might be a candidate shortcut for this.
