I have seen some keyboard-short cut problems in the forum recently, which I intended to report, like these 3 problems below:
I think a
keybindings.json file can be the final solution. (instead of APIs nor the Vim plugin.)
as mentioned in
Obsidian Release v0.6.0
The OTHER big news: You can now follow links with the keyboard. By default, follow the link under the cursor with
But in v0.8.2, control panel, we cant see an option for
follow the link under the cursor although the function and hotkey exists.
It’s currently mapped to cmd+right/left arrow - the problem is those hotkeys are used generally used to move the cursor to the beginning & end of a sentence.
Much more common back/forward hotkeys for mac are cmd+[ and cmd+] (used in Safari & Chrome)
Vim keybindings sound nice, but I don’t use vim. Can VS Code keybindings come to Obsidian?
VS Code has some exhaustive, platform-specific references
Alternatively, you can expose a keybinding API with the plugins.
I already see this JSON file in the
.obsidian/.config file. It could be useful if we have a detailed file.
Another +1. There’s already an option to enable Emacs-legacy. Perhaps instead the keybindings can be read from a file (defaulted to the Emacs-legacy bindings)?
Not being able to use custom keybindings for navigating through the text makes transitioning to obsidian difficult.
