What are your favorite keyboard shortcuts? ⌨️⚡

Recommend the product and describe the shortcut. Let's create a great repository for improving our workflows! For starters: to insert links into Google Apps (email, docs etc.), highlight the word you want to hyperlink and then hit CMD + K. Also works in some other places, such as Intercom. Saves me much mouse action 🐹

    Works on Slack / anywhere with a text field: CMD+CTRL+SPACE opens up the emoji drawer so I can use spaghetti whenever I want 🍝

      When I use the platform for my mac, it makes other applications to slow. It is taking most the capacity of ram!

      Don't want a white background within messaging window. Found a hack but have to redo every time a new update comes out.

    Forget what the standard shortcut is... But I use option+space to pull up quick task add menu. It's my most used, besides spotlight of course.

      We were looking for a tool to replace Asana, and after initially testing Todoist, became certain it could be the tool for us. But sharing projects is a PITA. There's no easy way to let your team have access to all newly created projects. Also, the projects structure isn't shared, so sharing a new subproject causes havoc in the teammate's projects structure, and the teammate needs to manually configure the projects structure according to it's intended layout.

    • The Todoist app is ruthlessly efficient in helping me capture my tasks no matter when or where I am. Bring collaborators into a project, or a task is a snap. When I'm creating a recurring task, and hopefully a positive habit, or when I am reflecting on my productivity, Todoist works.

    Free In-depth email tracking for salespeople

    Here I can customize shortcuts (in Docsify it's called a bit weird - snippets) and write emails faster.. found this Gem on Product Hunt. Now I write "Hello" push "Tab" button on the keyboard and Docsify writes automatically "Hello there! How are you today?" in my Gmail.

      I recommend using Docsify, it's a great tool and have got one of the best customer support.

      I was finally able to replace HubSpot's plug-in with a much powerful platform, Docsify!

      Great work guys and keep rocking.

      Really cool product to score leads: who is more interested in emails I sent. It is much easier to select leads among 100s of recepients, whom I should call first: obviously, those people who engage more with my presentations and docs.

      Docsify is a must-have email marketing tools for those who close deals.

    This is one of my most used shortcuts: Option + Space to get my clipboard history. I store emojis, links, email templates and other useful items that I need for my day-to-day. Highly recommend!
    Definitely - i use this ALL THE TIME.

      I rarely shell out money for any kind of software, but while there are great free alternatives (e.g. Flycut), I haven't seen anything close to the performance / usability / UI in Paste. For $10, great deal.

      I set clipboard history to unlimited and can quickly search/find old code snippets. If I ever need to remember something, I just copy it then can find it later.

      I've used a quite a few of these and Paste is by far my favorite.

    Keyboard Maestro

    Conduct your Mac like a pro

    On a PC the delete key removes characters to the right of the cursor. Macs don't have this, but I use Keyboard Maestro to add this functionality to the backslash key.

    Keyboard Maestro is the best yet. Seriously. You can configure a ton of automation and hotkeys for your needs.
    • Lets you do anything with your Mac. Automate all the things! Script apps that don't have scripting support (by replaying macros containing keypresses, mouse movements, clicks, whatever), have your Mac react to USB events, date/time, your input, device keys, external triggers, sleep/wake events, filesystem triggers, etc.

      I use it heavily for a few years by now, it's one of my essential apps. New versions are usually insta-buys — when I read that v7 was released, I bought it without test-driving it first. Same thing happened a year or two later with v8. It's worth every single penny.

      It does repeating boring tasks for me. And also some fun logging stuff.

    The . (period key) shortcut in Jira is pretty damn useful : it lets you very quickly edit any field / attribute of your issue.
