When in the story editor

  • ...bonus tip: if you then type the first two letters of the things you want to filter the story block list e.g. ​ / + im + Enter inserts an image block.
  • Cmd/Ctrl + B for bold formatting
  • Cmd/Ctrl + I for italic formatting
  • Cmd/Ctrl + U for underline formatting
  • Cmd/Ctrl + Enter to insert new row below selected block
  • Cmd/Ctrl + Shift + Enter to insert a new row above selected block
  • Shift + Enter to insert a soft break
  • Cmd/Ctrl + Backspace to delete a row (in some browsers)
  • Tab to increase list depth when in a ordered or unordered list
  • Shift + tab to decrease list depth when in a ordered or unordered list
