CMD + 1-3 Hotkey Used for H1-H3 Tags

I use the mac app iA Writer and a really nice feature is the hot key for formatting text. I hit CMD + 1 to make highlighted text an H1 tag.

It’s perfect for on the fly, fast text editing. I will never use the current Agenda hotkeys for switching sidebar locations using CMD + Numbers.

I request at least an option to make that hotkey format the H tags! Please!!


You can find a complete list of all shortcuts here: Keyboard Shortcuts Overview, including the ones for formatting headings:

Shortcut Command
βŒƒβŒ˜ 0 Body Text
βŒƒβŒ˜ 1 Heading
βŒƒβŒ˜ 2 Sub-Heading
βŒƒβŒ˜ 3 Minor Heading
βŒƒβŒ˜ 4 Minor Sub-Heading
βŒƒβŒ˜ 5 Preformatted

Note that you can always redefine the shortcuts in the system preferences if you like.

3 keys, meh. Should be an option to customize shortcuts.

I just checked and unless I’m missing something, you cannot redefine text editing keyboard shortcuts in Mac system preferences.

In App shortcuts, create one for Agenda with the menu title Format -> Style -> Heading and shortcut Cmd-1.


Oh awesome thank you Pat!
