Google Keep Easter Eggs
Google Keep (https://www.google.com/keep/) is a tool for creating, editing and sharing of notes, lists, photos, and audio.
I have a love/hate relationship with it because while I love it’s simplicity (especially for checklists), sometimes I wan’t richer formatting controls.
Much of Google Keep’s functionality is documented. Most of it has UI or help, but recently I discovered a few Easter Eggs:
- Bold & Italics The keyboard shortcuts
cmd + b, bmakes text bold and
cmd + i, imakes it italic. This double-tap shortcut is a little finicky. You usually have to tap
itwice, but sometimes once.
- Unordered Lists You can start an unordered list with either
+then when you hit enter the next line will automatically be prepended with a symbol.
- Numbered Lists You can start a list with
1.then when you hit enter the next line will automatically be
- Nested Checklists (This is documented now, but) you can indent (or un-indent) with
cmd + [or
cmd + ]respectively.
Ain’t that somethin’!
