Here is a suggestion that I think will help those who want to live life as much on the keyboard as possible - I know I would certainly appreciate this.
To get everyone on the same page, I am referring to the main interface elements as
View panel (that is the Finder-like list of groups and files you get to with
CTRL-OPT-CMD v) it would be handy if I could navigate from a file to its enclosing Group with
OPT-⬆︎ when viewing as a “list”. Then you could make
CMD-⬆︎ as the “go to top of list”. Currently both
CMD-⬆︎ takes us to the top of the list.
This movement I am suggesting is analogous to
OPT-left/right arrow which takes you to the beginning or end of the next word, while
CMD-left/right arrow takes you to the beginning or end of the line.
Why might this be useful? Because I can do this:
Work on my file inside a Group while the
Viewpanel is in list mode.
Finish working on document. Shift focus to View (
OPT-⬆︎to move to enclosing Group.
⬅︎to close enclosing Group, navigate to the next Group above or below.
Since Devonthink3 remembers whether Groups are open or not, this also soothes my OCD for the next time I open the database!
Thanks again for the most used app on my Mac!
