Keyboard shortucts in tooltips and menus

Use case or problem

As a new Obsidian user I want to be taught the keyboard shortcuts so that I’m more productive.

Proposed solution

I mouse around the UI to click buttons and use menus, often when a keyboard shortcut exists for that feature. Having the shortcut for a feature listed in the tooltip or menu option would help with the spaced repetition required to memorize these shortcuts.

Current workaround (optional)

Search the docs repeatedly, post-it’s with shortcuts, slowly using the mouse.


I was about to post this, glad I searched before.

Same for me. feels like a missed opportunity to simply add the shortcut (if it exists) at the end of every tooltip.
