Another styling/formatting shortcut:
- convert selection to ordered and unordered list
Another styling/formatting shortcut:
lots of show-hide or ‘go to’ commands are needed. Toggle left-sidebar/right-sidebar is useful, but more specific commands are needed for
It seems like the items in the left sidebar have this, but right do not.
edit: also missing “go to file explorer”.
You can do duct tape together a highlight shortcut with Keyboard Maestro:
%CurrentClipboard%is just a variable for the clipboard, so inserting
==%CurrentClipboard%==is just pasting whatever you just copied… but with the
=='s added to each side.
According to a discussion here I can probably remove the pause, actually.
edit: obviously, this doesn’t remove the highlight, but you could probably actually cobble that together with keyboard maestro too with an if/then search for the
==s within the selection or on each side of the selection. If there, remove them.
Not sure if this has been mentioned already - but cotemaxime from Discord mentioned that I should post as a feature request here. There should be a shortcut hotkey customization for creating a link, currently it is bound to Cmd+K but would like to use that hotkey for a diff. functionality.
Given that Maestro is MacOS only, I created a shortcut with Autohotkey:
Just create a new script with the following:
; Markdown Highlight ^+e:: Send,^c ClipWait Send, ==^v== Return ; Syntax ; ^ = CTRL ; ! = ALT ; + = SHIFT ; # = WIN ; :: = run when pressed keys together
Works without delays even for large selections of text, only issue is that to revert styling you have to hit CTRL+Z thrice as the script can’t apply the styling in one action (instead pastes “==”, then the selected text, then “==” again).
Hotkey to enable/disable Custom CSS plugin.
The latest changes have broken a lot of custom CSS, especially as it relates to Pane movement. My current work around is to disable custom CSS, place panes, re-enable custom CSS. A hotkey would make this more convenient now, but also in the future as changes are likely to break more custom CSS.
I strongly endorse this! I’m trying to reduce my mouse use for health reasons, and moving from pane to pane would be a huge help.
I suggest CMD-ALT-LEFTArrow and CMD-ALT-RIGHTArrow, but of course the key binding can be customized by the user anyway. All we need is the keyboard shortcut to cycle through the panes.
If more sort options are ever implemented (like a custom sort, alphabetical sort, and date modified sort), then I would love a hotkey to change which sort method is currently active.
works like a charm thank you!
I think it would be a great feature to be able to use a hotkey to insert a link to today’s note.
Do you mean inserting a link that you have copied from the web into your daily note? Or make a bidirectional link to today’s daily note in another note?
Correct, so that by using the hotkey on a page other than today’s daily note, a link to the daily note eg.
[2020-07-03](2020-07-03) will be inserted at the cursor.
Is there a global hotkey just for launching obsidian? And maybe toggling it? I mapped one out for myself using alfred (i’m on mac) but maybe because cmd-w doesn’t work, it doesn’t feel as smooth: Close obsidian with cmd w on mac
Hey all. Is there anyways to go up and down a list of notes in any folder using hotkeys in obsidian?
Not sure if you’re still looking for hotkey ideas, but I’d love to be able to hit a hotkey, Then use a dialog similar to quick open to move a file to a different folder.
File 1 is in the inbox folder.
Hot key invokes quick move dialogue
User enters the first letter of their Project 1 folder
Project 1 folder is autocompleted and highlighted
User hits return and the file moves out of the inbox, and into Project 1 folder.
DEVONthink does something similar and it’s magical.
Have to share a hotkey for making internal links with Autohotkey.
Select text, then hit
Ctrl + L (choose your own)
FYI, #IfWinActive is so this only activates inside of Obsidian, not other apps.
; Obsidian #IfWinActive, ahk_exe Obsidian.exe $^l:: ; Internal link Send,^c ClipWait Send,[[^v]] Return #IfWinActive
This also has a builtin hotkey if you select text and press
[[, it automatically does the same without losing on the selected text. A side-benefit is that you don’t lose your clipboard during the process.
Great tip @Rishi.
Something I would never get from my previous reading of the standard help reference.
