Is it possible to set up a global keyboard shortcut to create new Bear note regardless of what application I am currently running? I am using bear on mac.

I mean something like quick entry / quick entry with autofill in Things.

    hi rafal,

    i have put in a request that when bear is triggered via the keyboard shortcut the search bar be focussed.

    this would allow you to create a new note from that box by entering the title and cmd N.

    Did you try the global short cuts in Bear Preferences?

    Hello Roar,

    Yep it works just like I wanted. I must have overlooked this when going through preferences,
