Struggling with Hot key timecoding

Recommended Posts

Standard keyboard shortcuts can normally only be used when the application window has focus. System-wide hot-keys, on the other hand, can be used when you are working in another application, or even when the application is minimized. Note: System-wide hot-keys take precedence over standard keyboard shortcuts. In other words, if a key is configured as both a standard keyboard shortcut and a system-wide hot-key, then only the hot-key command will be run when the key is pressed. From the Hot-Keys tab of Options you can:

  • Enable system-wide hot-keys: Tick the checkbox to enable hot-keys. Disable system-wide hot-keys if they are not needed and / or they are interfering with the operation of other programs.
  • Add: Click the Add button to create and add a new hot-key. This will open the Add New Hot-Key dialog.
  • Change: Click the Change button to modify the selected existing hot-key in the list. This will opens the Change Hot-Key Command dialog.
  • Delete: Click the Delete button to delete the selected existing hot-key(s) in the list.
  • Set defaults: Reset all hot-keys to the default configuration. (Not available in all applications.)

In order to "timestamp" part of the file: 

Open the Notes menu in the menu bar

  1. Select Insert
  2. Select Time

Please note: The shortcut is Ctrl + Shift + T
