Steps to reproduce
Open the settings & look at the Hotkeys section.
I expected all keyboard shortcuts to be listed.
Some keyboard shortcuts are missing from the list.
- Operating system: Windows 10
I don’t have a comprehensive list of all available keyboard shortcuts so I can’t verify all that are missing, but I noticed that the ones for zooming the display in & out, as well as returning the zoom state back to 100%, are all missing (Ctrl + 0, Ctrl + - and Ctrl + +).
If there are some shortcuts, that for whatever reason won’t be available to be customized by the user, I feel they should be at least listed.
The three you have listed are browser-side—I’m not sure it makes sense to think of them as Obsidian hotkeys. Same with cmd+w, for instance (I’m not sure that’s listed either).
I agree to the need for at least a few more shortcuts, for users who don’t want to touch the mouse.
Coming from things like spacemacs, the only frustrating thing about obsidian is having to use the mouse quite a lot more.
like @ryanjamurphy said some are browser side, personally I don’t have a problem with those.
I’m okay with certain shortcuts that can’t be modified, what I’d propose is make a list of the specific ones you need @varian93
so that the team is aware of what might be missing.
Personally I’ll make a feature request to inlcude
toggle vim mode
SInce vim-mode in obsidian isn’t perfect, it’d be nice to be able to toggle it off from a shortcut.
That’s my take on it, hope it helps!
While you’re correct, I think the OP’s precise issue is that some keyboard shortcuts already exist but aren’t currently listed.
But yes, please search for/submit any missing shortcuts functionality to #feature-requests!
You are right, there must be a couple of hotkeys I’m not keeping in mind that would apply to what @varian93 needs.
All I can think of are the ones @ryanjamurphy mentioned above.
Ah, now I understand, at first I thought Obsidian was just borrowing common shortcut standards from other software. I didn’t realize that it was actually using other software for part of it’s functionality. Now it makes perfect sense.
I haven’t yet been using Obsidian long enough to discover what all keyboard shortcuts would be ideal so I have no specific requests. The software is fantastic. I fully anticipate purchasing the catalyst license soon.
I do think that all keyboard shortcuts should be at least documented somewhere. If someone was unfamiliar with the common zoom in & out shortcuts & accidentally triggered one they’d likely have a difficult time figuring out how to correct it without asking someone who knows.
