Bear is the least friction writing environment I’ve ever felt and a large part of that is due to wonderful choices for shortcut keys. After three years of typing in Bear, I’m very familiar with these choices and like them a ton.
I notice the Panda alpha reassigns some shortcuts and removes some entirely:
- Strikethrough ⇧⌘E — changed to ⇧⌘U
- Quote ⇧⌘U — changed to ⇧⌘T
- Todo › Toggle ⇧⌘T – removed
In particular I want to call out todos: Bear’s support for todos is so good that people consider replacing full-fledged task apps (like Things) with Bear. Please keep a keyboard shortcut around for toggling todo state (Things uses “⌘.”). In Panda there’s no shortcuts for todo state and no menu item available for me to set my own (through macOS)
