#44 Add Gmail Like Shortcuts


When I'm processing a lot of notes I'd like to more easily navigate between notebooks, notes and tags. Nixnote could be set up in much the same way as Gmail. It would require that by pressing the ESC key, the focus was removed from all fields. That way a lot more flexibility and ease will be available when pushing shortcuts.

Here's a quick example
#. Key(s) Pressed | Description
1. ESC | remove focus from the current field
2. g | signify that you want to "go to"
3. n | specifiy that you want to go to a notebook
4. Inbox | inally some auto-complete text field would pop up that's populated from the current set of notebooks and I could start typing the notebook I want to go into by typing for example "Inbox".



    • status: open --> wont-fix
    • Group: --> Next Release (example)
  • This is pretty old, but NixNote2 does provide the ability to customize some shortcuts. It isn't anything nearly as detailed as this, but it does provide some. Unless I get a lot of user requests for this, I probably won't implement it because this would require a pretty substantial amount of work given the current setup. Sorry.
