Users of editors like VS Code and Sublime Text will already know what a command palette is. It’s a menu where any available command can be executed by typing the name of the command. It’s also a great way to explore available commands and learn what their keyboard shortcuts are. It’s a great way to ease the learning curve for any user.
I would like to add that Superhuman does this too with email - it’s amazing how powerful “CMD+K” plus typing what you think the command might be called is in aiding discoverability of features.
A command palette shortcut would be great.
ctrl-p … sort (the selected items)
ctrl-p … create new document
ctrl-p …turn into checkbox (the selected items)
ctrl-p … turn children into numbered list
This would be awesome! I use the command palette style navigation/actions all the time (Alfred2, Sublime, Atom, Jetbrain editors) so I don’t have to remember keyboard shortcuts for the less frequently used navigations/actions.
