I’m wondering if there is a keyboard shortcut to activate (ie, give focus to) the integrated search field (ie, the search field that appears in the toolbar)?
I see keyboard shortcuts for Find, and for showing Filters in the Sidebar. But I can’t find a way to activate the integrated search field using the keyboard. The only way seems to be to click on it with my mouse. (This seems strange, seeing how well suited the rest of the app is for keyboard use.)
However: I see the menu item you mentioned in OmniFocus. But I don’t see it in OmniOutliner, which is what I was wondering about. (I posted in the OmniOutliner forum, but I should have specified in my questions that I’m using OmniOutliner 5.0.4.)
Here’s a screenshot … I don’t see “Go to Search Field” …
There isn’t currently a way to navigate to the Search field using only the keyboard in OmniOutliner 5, but I’ve let the team know you’d like to see a way to access this using the keyboard in a future release. Thanks for letting us know that’d benefit your use!
I suggest that you (and anyone else who feels the same way) send them an email too. If you don’t want to explain the full issue, you can just point them to this forum post and say you’d like a keyboard shortcut for “Edit > Find > Go to Search Field”.
