Features Working with TiddlyWiki

Keyboard shortcuts can either be used with the $keyboard Widget or with Keyboard Shortcut Tiddlers

The $keyboard Widget makes the shortcuts accessible within an input or textarea field.
A shortcut defined through a Keyboard Shortcut Tiddler makes the shortcut accessible globally

See How to create keyboard shortcuts with a detailed explanation for creating your own shortcuts

Keyboard shortcuts are available for common editing operations within the Text Editor:

  • Confirming changes to the draft tiddler containing the keyboard focus (defaults to ctrl-Enter)
  • Abandoning changes to the draft tiddler containing the keyboard focus (defaults to escape)
  • Formatting operations from the tiddler editing toolbar (see the tooltips)

New in: 5.1.18 : New global Keyboard shortcuts:

  • Creating a new tiddler (defaults to alt-N )
  • Creating a new journal (defaults to alt-J )
  • Creating a new image (defaults to alt-I )

The current shortcuts can be inspected and customised in the "Keyboard Shortcuts" tab of the Control Panel .
