We’d like to leave some shortcuts empty in the future so that they can be customized but don’t have a default key combination.
The reason is that as we keep adding more shortcuts, we run into conflicts more often. Because the Dynalist web app runs in the browser, it cannot conflict with common browser shortcuts either. A good example is toggling tag pane: our convention tells us to use
Ctrl+Shift+T, but it’s used to open the last opened tab in Chrome. We really don’t want to override shortcuts like this. Another example is
Ctrl+L is used to insert LaTeX but it also goes to the address bar in Chrome.
As blank shortcuts don’t take “shortcut” space, we can have as many as we want.
Currently these actions include:
- Toggle tag pane
- Toggle image preview/inline (suggested here)
- Toggle normal view/article view
- [Done] Duplicate item (with children)
- [Done] Go to parent item
- [Done] Go to previous/next sibling
- Toggle bookmark
More suggestions welcome!
