Change Atom Command Palette Keyboard Shortcut
Testing out using Atom as a text editor on Mac OS. I found that the default keyboard shortcut for the Command Palette of shift-cmd-p doesn’t work for me. Dang!
So I used cmd-. to see what was going on. I could see that when pressing shift-cmd-p it wasn’t being caught (look at the bottom of the Atom window).
The steps to resolve this were:
cmd-, I’ve gone toPreferences (aka Settings) > Packages > scroll to the command-palette package > scroll to Keybindings > un-tick Enable.
Then open up Preferences > Keybindings > click on your keymap file
This will opened up a file called
keymap.cson. Then I added to the bottom of this file the following:
# remap the command-palette:toggle keyboard shortcut '.platform-darwin, .platform-darwin .command-palette atom-text-editor': 'cmd-p': 'command-palette:toggle'
This lets me use cmd-p as the keyboard shortcut to access the command palette.
Now I can start playing with it :)
