It really materially improves my flow if I can navigate through the various modes & states of the app with the keyboard and not have to reach for the mouse. Very few note applications get this right! I would love it if Obsidian could do it but I imagine it will take careful consideration of the various parts that need to be reached from each other and what the states can be (edit vs preview).
When editing a file, need shortcut to take me to edit the filename.
At the moment, it seems that i need to press
Control+E to go into Preview mode and then hit
TAB to move to the filename. This is cumbersome.
When editing a file, how do I escape out of the edit pane and into the file explorer OR search pane (if that is currently active instead of the File Explorer) to choose another file to view and/or edit?
The general common pattern that needs to be made easy is being able to (a) browse though a subset of files quite simply in preview mode (b) choose one to edit quickly and then be able to hope back to scrolling through the filtered list of files.
