We are excited to share a powerful new feature that evolved from our last Hackathon, the Action Bar.

The Action Bar is a quick launch command menu that puts many important actions in Shortcut at your fingertips. Execute commands with just a few keystrokes to get more work done, faster.

Activate the Action Bar with two keystrokes

With a simple keyboard command, let the Action Bar do the work for you!

  • For Mac: cmd + k
