What efficiency-enhancing DT feature took you far too long to discover about the program, that you now use constantly?

I have so many of these and thought it might be fun for users to some of these. For me:

  • Assigning replicants via Move-To (Control-Command-M) pop-up: I realized only very recently that once the desired replicant group is selected from this pop-up (which I get to, by typing), I can then simply hold-down Command+Option to replicate the currently-selected item into that group, by double-clicking. …and if the group doesn’t already exist, it can be created, also, from that pop-up. (Previous workflow was to open a second window, navigate to where I wanted to replicate to, check to make sure the group existed (create one if I not), then back in the original window, right-click the item, mouse to Replicate, then choose top item on the list (if I created a new group) or, more clunky; drag the item to the new group (in the other window) by holding down modifier keys.)

Earlier today I realized I can reveal the findings of a search in a new window. If we could always do this, I can’t believe it took me so long to discover this :grinning:.


Replicating is also possible via the See Also & Classify inspector, by the way.

? How does one do this ?

Using Cmd + [ to move back from a link clicked on in a markdown file (and Cmd + ] to move back again)—in other words, to move backwards and forwards between documents.

Great question.

The fact you can widen the Annotations inspector window by dragging it to the left making it easier to work on the annotation side-by-side with the source document. It’s probably in the manual somewhere.

I still haven’t got my head around saved workspaces. I have a nagging feeling they could be life-changing in some way…

Thanks, Jim.

I know - it’s like the guy at Ikea said, “Read The Instructions”. :face_with_spiral_eyes:

And you’re welcome :slight_smile:

@rpor right click on the search result, but before clicking Reveal, hold down Option. Then the contextual menu offers “Reveal in New Window.”
