Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.
I prefer software and services which have keybindings similar to the [VIM ](Vim (text editor) - Wikipedia) text editor. In it’s simplest form it focuses “hotkeys” to the home row, minimizing the need for the arrow keys and the mouse. This is accomplished by having different [modes](Vim (text editor) - Wikipedia).
Example: In insert mode you use all key as input keys for text. By pressing escape you leave insert and enter normal. Here all the keys instead perform different functions/actions, and not input. You can go back to insert by pressing
Describe the solution you’d like
Two modes. A command mode, where I interact with anytype using single key presses. A input mode, where key presses results in actual text.
Describe alternatives you’ve considered
Two modes is the dream. However, since this probably is a quite a lot of work for a small userbase I suggest something more lightweight and hopefully realistic. It essentially comes down to additional hotkeys, rather than having different modes.
I’ll try to explain this with a series of action.
- I’m in a block typing text. The arrows moves the cursor.
- I press
escape, the cursor “leaves” the block. Arrows now move the page up/down
- I press
kalso move the page up/down (similar to VIM)
In general, HJKL can be used in place of arrow keys. E.g. when navigating the
/ command menu.
- ↓ or j — next search result
- ↑ or k — previous search result
