+1 on this request. Mainly list and todo shortcuts.
Previously I used bear for daily notes and inkdrop for topic notes, now have merged into obsidian. For a hack I am using keyboard maestro to map bears shortcuts to adding characters at start of current line, but it isnt the same. In bear I could select several lines and hit cmd-L to turn them all into an outline.
I think we can all agree on the fact that typing ‘- [ ]’ takes a lot of time and is really tiring.
I journal a lot in Obsidian and I write everything I have to do that day. So every time I have to format a line to the checklist I want to write the whole thing again, I just wanna do something like cmd + t and ‘- [ ]’ gets pasted at my cursor.
There should be a shortcut to turn a bunch of consecutive lines into either a bulleted list (shortcut A) OR a numbered list (shortcut B) and toggle this on/off with repeated tapping of the respective keyboard shortcut.
I’m on a Mac and I use Alfred to expand keyboard shortcuts (or a phrases) too expand anything I type to often, eg todays date, my name, cell number, etc. It’s main purpose is to be a better Spotlight search, but it has so many other features…
I have Keyboard Maestro and can make the macro’s easily, but would love for it to be baked into Obsidian as a shortcut. Someone mentioned Command-L for list, which seems simple enough. And the ability to select text and convert it to a list is helpful too.
