Hi. Thanks for developing this great app. I just started using obsidian, but I find I am using obsidian more and more. I am on Linux (Ubuntu). So I often use the shortcut
ALT + TAB to switch to the obsidian window. This works fine. But I wondered if this can be improved more. Since after pressing
ALT + TAB to switch to obsidian I often need to press
TAB some more times if I have let’s say 4 applications that I use often. I may need to press
ALT + TAB and then the application switcher appears and still while holding down
ALT I press
tab some more times to select the
obsidian app from the list.
What I would like is to assign a shortcut key like
F10 that will immediately focus the obsidian app (I am only using one instance of obsidian, so it can’t be confusion about which obsidian instance to focus here)
This will be a great improvement for me to avoid having repeatedly press
I researched this a little bit and found that you can set hot keys associated with running a command in Ubuntu like this:
For this to work, I think obsidian must implement some features though. What I am thinking is that when running obsidian from terminal can we have a command line option like
$ obsidian --focus
or something. That will instead of running a new
obsidian instance activate and focus the window of the last opened instance?
Then this can be used as the “command” to execute when pressing
F10 (or another hot key that the user assigns for this purpose). I think VS Code already has this feature. If you just type
code (to run VS Code) in the terminal, it will focus the last opened instance (in that directory) instead of opening a new instance of VS Code.
