they need a shortcut to search “all” vs just in the crate you are currently in.

Bless you. This is a tremendous list to keep nearby. :beers:

Could you please post such a list also for the Windows user. Thanks in Advance.

I don 't have a Windows PC here to check, but nu guess would be that it is the same list, except you gotta use CTRL instead of CMD

Thanks for writing this up addie!

I just uploaded the official Keyboard shortcuts list for both Mac and Window to the Engine Prime software page.

why is there no shourtcut for deleting a track out of a Playlist like

DELETE > Remove from Playlist CMD + DELETE > Remove from Collection

???

Please implement!!!

2 remarks on this suggestion:

  • Mac computers don’t have the DELETE button (fn + backspace works this way)
  • Delete button (or fn + backspace) already works as expected in the search field (just like backspace does) in Engine Prime. An equal command for removal from collection or playlist could cause you to accidentally delete a file while actually attempting to correct a typo.

Normally on a Mac you delete a file (to trash folder) with CMD + Backspace and in Windows with DELETE (or SHIFT + DELETE to remove direct without trash). If the shortcuts for removal would be implemented this standard shortcuts makes more sense. Then they should delete depending on where you are in the browser. So in Collection remove from collection, in a crate ‘remove from crate’ and in a playlist ‘remove from playlist’
