Hotkey for individual templates

Use case or problem

My list of templates is growing. I still use just a handful very frequently.

Proposed solution

Allow me to set a direct template shortcut (CMD-1) for a specific template.

Current workaround (optional)

Give the templates weird names so that the most likely used ones shows up near the top, keyboard arrow navigation to find it.

I feel that this is like a snippet system.

In vim, I use Ultisnip for such actions. I prepend a ; before my snippet hotkeys, e.g. ;header<TAB>, so it won’t interfere with normal word auto-completion.

It would be cool to have a snippet system in obsidian.

I released a new plugin GitHub - Vinzent03/obsidian-hotkeys-for-templates. This should fix your problem.

That’s very nice!

Could it be smart and expand templater things also if that’s active? Like {{tp_title}} etc.

So you want to expand the functionality for the templater plugin?

I suppose I should send that there, right. Thanks!

No not needed. I already added support for Templater.
