Available Hotkeys / Keybinds


I would love to know if there are any hotkeys / key-binds available that might not be listed in the interface / main menu. For example, I would love the ability to toggle Markdown Preview on and off, but if it is not available (which it does not appear to be), could we get a hot-key feature request going?

If you know of any hotkeys that are not published, please let us know!


It’s super easy to bind a hot-key to any command you want: Keymaps in-depth. All you need is the name of the command. Since most of Atom’s functionality are implemented as packages, typically, the easiest way to find that out is to search the package directory. Searching for markdown turns up markdown-preview, which, it turns out is already bound to ctrl-shift-m. Hope that helps.
