  1. Using Quick Search

iOS Mac


Quick search can be accessed via several methods:

  • iOS:
    • Search button at the bottom right of the editor.
    • Scroll beyond the top of a draft in the editor (when not already editing the draft). This pull-to-search gesture is similar to pull-to-refresh in list views.
    • Shift-⌘-F keyboard shortcut.
  • Mac:
    • Quick search button in the toolbar.
    • Edit > Find > Quick Search in the main menu.
    • Shift-⌘-F keyboard shortcut.

Once in quick search, type your partial query string and your results will update to display matching commands, workspaces, actions, and drafts. Tap/click on an item in the result to select it - or navigate the list with arrow keys and hit “Enter” to select an item.
