A solid video on keyboard shortcuts for RapidWeaver. Some people are mouse users, others keyboard junkies, nice to have the option available.

After you typed in blog how did you get down to the page without the mouse? Downarrow, tab, pagedown and end don't work and seems like a moo (mouse only operation).

What is the logic behind cmd+shift+i for inspector and not having cmd+shift+L be the layout instead making it cmd+opt+L for layout?

Also is there a way to actually have the focus move over to the page you are on? Even something simple like cmd+option+L twice if it is already open to have it close and reopen to then have it focus on the page you are on so you can use the arrow keys would be better then the moo it currently seems to be. I use a key command like this in scrivener all the time to switch focus between the side bar (binder) and the page you are on and it is wonderful!

I also changed the keyboard shortcut through Keyboard Maestro for Preview in Default Browser from cmd+p since I found I was accidentally sending things to my printer when I had focus on an image or document in the Finder.

Thanks Ben for the tutorial it was great to see the command+option+. for remove formatting, I didn't realize that was there and tried it in several other applications hoping that was a universal command I had missed but no such luck. I use shift+option+cmd+v frequently for 6 or so years now since I learned about it.

Keep up the great work!!

I used the arrow keys to navigate. This works when the pages list is in focus, which should happen automatically when you add a new page, or you can click on one of the pages.

Cmd + Shift + L is the KB shortcut in Styled Text areas to start a new list

Not at the moment, no.

Glad you enjoyed the video :)
