Bullet Point Shortcut

Hey everyone,

I was wondering if it is possible to assign a shortcut key to inserting a bullet point in Scrivener?
If so, how can I do it??


Users can assign keyboard shortcuts to any menu items:

scrivener.tenderapp.com/help/kb … er-for-mac

So, if you have a specific bullet-point style that you want to use that is already available from the menu, you can assign a keyboard shortcut to it.

For example, the standard round-bullet menu item in Scrivener can be keyed by typing OPT 8.

If you want to assign a keyboard shortcut to this type of list, you can use the method outlined on the link above, with the menu title being the round bullet of OPT 8 and then assigning a shortcut for that menu title, such as CTRL OPT CMD 8 (you need a shortcut that doesn’t conflict with any other shortcut).

Back in Scrivener, CTRL OPT CMD 8 will create a bullet list using the round bullet. You can assign different shortcuts to different bullet types / menu titles.

Slàinte mhòr.

Thanks for this!

I just discovered a few days ago I could assign commands in the system preferences and have set a few up already, but was unsure about how to do it for a bullet point.

Opt + 8 is exactly what I was looking for! This has just sped up my workflow quite a bit, thanks :slight_smile:

This info is also helpful for other special characters I may wish to add shortcuts for in future too.
