So there you go @TomD :slight_smile:

This is really usefull … thanks

Thanks @George. Very useful - several I hadn’t discovered yet. F9 could have interesting results.

Shift+tab seems to do the same as Ctrl [ (‘indent less’). Previously it had a useful function - to format/beautify the selected text. I don’t think there is an option for that any more. It would be useful if it could be reinstated some time.

3 posts were split to a new topic: Alt-G key on Mac

This is very useful but some things I have noticed:

  • Cmd-F doesn’t search in MacOS unless I first click in the editor area. It only searches the selected file and not the project.
  • Fn-F3 in MacOs displays the desktops and not find next
  • Opt-Fn-F3 in MacOs displays Mission Control settings
  • Cmd-S is random and sometimes only saves if I first click the “Design | Code | Split” bar above the file editor

Cmd-F is indeed a shortcut in the Code Editor only. So the code editor needs to be focused. The project search doesn’t have a shortcut at this moment.

I removed the fn key in the shortcut list since it depends on the keyboard you have, not every Mac requires to use the fn key. I think most Mac users will know how to use F3.

Cmd-S should work global in Wappler, independent on what has focus.

Select Element in Code View

In addition to Select Line in Code View it would be very usefull to add also Select Element because an element can be spread over different lines.
CTRL-E would be a logic shortcut

ctrl+tab ctrl+shift+tab was added couple weeks ago to move between open files (tabs)

request to also add ctrl+pg up and ctrl+pg down to move between design/code/split views.

Shortcuts for these would certainly be very useful.

In relation to this, an option to choose in which view files appeared when opened would also very useful (more useful than shortcut keys for those who always work in split view for example).

6 posts were split to a new topic: F2 not working in experimental design view

pretty please…implement this.

Would be great if shortcut keys are customizable by user. I’d love to setup my shortcut keys for toggle design/code/split view to Alt+q :innocent:.

There have been many requests for shortcuts - and many have now been implemented.

At least from my point of view, the biggest omissions are shortcuts for the different views, as you mention, and a shortcut to ‘open in browser’. I also suggested earlier in this thread, that an option to choose the default view, in preferences, would be very helpful (for me, more useful than shortcut keys as I always use split view).

Perhaps the problem with this thread is that it doesn’t come under ‘feature requests’. Perhaps it’s another which could be split - or should there be different requests for different keyboard shortcuts (though this doesn’t sound very sensible)?

I’d love a shortcut for moving elements inside the app structure. Dragging doesn’t work very well usually.

Is it possible to get the shortcuts in a PDF that does not use the black background I like to print these out for quick glance review.

Right now can’t print it and if i could I really don’t want to waste all that black ink either.
