It occurs to me that there’s an unused, potentially useful keyboard shortcut in Balsamiq
So, when I have nothing selected in the interface, my next task is often one of the following:
- Search for a widget by text search
- Add text
For both of these actions, my instinct is to just start typing on the keyboard. Currently this is inactive, and the keystrokes are ignored. Wouldn’t it be cool instead if it started searching the library (without having to mouse-click the search box first). It could also offer you the option to select a text box, which would then magically appear with your typed characters already inserted.
Seems like a minor thing, but it’d save me some hassle. Sometimes I actually click the search box looking for a text object, and my brain skips ahead and I find myself typing the text I want in the search box itself!
