Use case or problem
Using keyboard only, it’s not easy to quickly ‘jump to a note’ on a given subject by knowing its file name, header or tag.
Ctrl+Shift+F is quite basic
- it does not prioritize the ‘camel humps search’ results (e.g. like here: https://www.jetbrains.com/help/rider/Navigation_and_Search__CamelHumps.html)
- it does not prioritize file names, headers, tags over the file content in ordering results
- above all it does not allow a quick ‘jump to file’ from the results list
A new function, assignable to hotkey which upon triggering allows starting typing text (expected - file names, maybe also headers and tags) and looks for files which match it - immediately displaying a list of results.
Matching should recognize words and camel humps - e.g.
I type letters o,b,f,r and that should show me files called ObsidianFeatureRequests, Obsidian Funny Rumble etc.
Hitting enter should immediately take us to first file on that list.
Hitting arrows down and up should allow to move through that list and then Enter should go to selected file.
- allowing a pop-up preview of these notes (by a different shortcut or focusing it for x seconds)
- allowing opening the note in new tab

That is very addictive after you use it for a day.
Anyway - great job with Obsidian
