The app experience could be considerably improved by adding shortcuts to the following categories of tasks: navigation, annotation.
Things I can think of right now in each category:
Please add the standard shortcuts, and make it easy to annotate in various ways with just the keyboard. That is very important
Well designed keyboard shortcuts are absolutely essential, to aid a fast workflow. Please give this your highest priority.
I agree, simple thinks like copy+paste (cmd+c and cmd+v) in all textfields as search and also metadata should be supported (also within the pdf).
getting really great with each update!
Almost every Mac app uses cmd+W to close a window or tab and cmd+H to hide the app. Please add to Papers for Mac :-)
Yes. I discovered this all too late. Very disappointed that the new version looks very feature stripped. Basic shortcuts are missing. This is not an iPhone game. People use these tools on desktops to save them time. The new version definitely is waisting more of my time to use than version 3. Long term users of papers would be used to lots of keyboard shortcuts at least. Please add back the features to this new version. I used to be able to program strips to open and set ups articles with a quick keyboard shortcut and applescripts. Now no more
Yes, sadly it seems that the new Papers in comparison to Papers 3 is very mouse-based, which makes workflows lengthier. I'd also appreciate a keyboard shortcut for "copy citekey to clipboard" which works both when the source is marked in the library AND from the PDF reader (this worked in Papers 3). Ideally, this would be a menu item as these can be customised via the keyboard shortcut menu on Mac.
If I knew Readcube Papers was going to ditch the keyboard shortcuts for annotation, I wouldn't have upgraded. If this doesn't get resolved, I will probably cancel my subscription and use/recommend something else.
