Keyboard Shortcuts

How to use keyboard shortcuts inside dewey. to make your life easier



In this video, we're going to talk about keyboard shortcuts, which you will see on the bottom left panel. The whole point of using keyboard shortcuts is to reduce the need to move your mouse frequently. To toggle keyboard shortcuts, you can use Option K on a Mac keyboard. Pressing Option K will bring up all the different keyboard shortcuts. This is a quick little tool until you start to build up repetition and intuitively learn them as you go.

A few things we can do include toggling between different views by using Option G, Option L, or Option R, which correspond to the grid view, list view, or row view, respectively. Let's give that a shot. We'll do Command L to switch to list view, Command R to switch to row view, and Command G to go back to group view. I can also toggle the theme and font size right from the keyboard shortcuts. Command B will switch to dark mode and pressing it again will bring you back to light mode. Command H will increase the font size, making everything a bit bigger.

Let's look at actions like search and select all. Using Command F will bring up the search, and Command A will select all items. If you want to apply tags to everything, you can do that with Command T. If you accidentally hit select all and want to undo that, Command U will unselect everything. You can also jump to different sections, add tags, sync, and create folders. For example, Command C creates a new folder.

The keyboard shortcuts are designed to speed up your time inside of Dewey so that you're not relying on the mouse for everything.
