Shortcuts are quick ways to perform common tasks. There are various places in the UI where you can activate shortcuts:

  • The Shortcuts toolbelt tool.
  • The Edit > Actions menu.
  • The Actions Menu and Snippets Menu status bar components.
  • The Open Quickly panel.


An action consists of something to do (such as open a new window) with a name, called its title. Actions are very similar to key bindings except that they don't need to have a keyboard shortcut attached.


A Snippet is a string of text with a title. By activating the snippet, the associated text is sent as though it had been typed.
