Obsidian Shortcuts

November 25, 2020

These is a list of my custom shortcuts for Obsidian.

These can be set by going to Obsidian Settings > Hotkeys

Opening Sidebars

Toggle Left Sidebarshift + ctrl + H
Toggle Right Sidebarshift + ctrl + L

Navigate Backalt + H

This is my prefered method, if you know vim it's extremly intuitive.

additionally I have some extra ones you might prefer:

Navigate Backcmd/ctrl + alt +
Navigate Backcmd/ctrl + [

Like mentioned above, this is my prefered method.

Folding Headings

considering that the setting for folding is turned on in Settings > Editor > Fold Headings > (Toggle On)

Toggle CurrentAlt + Tab
Toggle AllShift + Tab

Update for folding headings shortcuts

I am currently not using these ones, since they conflict with a community plug in, I still think they work great for folding.

I'm just waiting for folding to improve in Obsidian. In the mid-time whenever I need some heavy folding I use spacemacs.
