⇧⌘← / Location Bar Keyboard Access Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Hi,

Two things:

One: I'm thoroughly accustomed to using ⇧⌘← to highlight text to the beginning of the line (⌘← = go to beginning of current editor line; shifting adds text selection to any cursor move). OmniWeb thinks I want to go to my Start Page when I do that, which has caused me no end of frustration while editing. In fact, it's already happened twice while drafting this message. Keyboard shortcuts are great; consistency with established editing shortcuts is better.

Two: When I open a new window or tab, it's usually because I'm about to type an address or do a quick search. To that end, a setting that keeps the cursor in the location bar when manually opening a new tab or window would be nice. As I mentioned (agreeing with another poster) in another thread, I'd really like the option to open a new blank tab or window, while still having a default start page that opens when the program first launches.

2. If you hit command+l, type in the location you want to go, then hit command+return, the url you typed will automatically open in a new tab. Not exactly what you asked for but it requires the same amount of key commands.
 
⌘+L, URL, ⌘+Enter instead of ⌘+T, URL, Enter. OK, I can train myself to do that. Thanks.
 
Now if we could just get ⌘-return to work in the search field....

(I did notice a few releases back, however, that ⌘-clicking form buttons works to open the result in a new tab/window - just as I requested it do after I got used to it in IE way back when. Thanks!)

You can always use the URL bar and type in your search. For example:
google omniweb
then hit command+return.
 
And indeed, I often do just that. When I want to use my default engine, however, it's quicker and less error-prone to use the search field - and that *is* the whole point of having the search field, after all :-).

Nonetheless, the keyword approach is a viable workaround until Omni fixes what presumably is an oversight. (And yes, I have still reported it/requested it - at least, I think I have....)

Seconded. I'm going nuts trying to teach myself that ⇧⌘← means "homepage"

I spend too much time typing in textareas in OmniWeb to not have ⇧⌘← Select the current line. My solution was to create a custom keyboard shortcut for "Go to Start Page" in the Keyboard & Mouse System preference pane. Once you change this shortcut away from ⇧⌘← the default text selection action will return when you next restart OmniWeb.
 
How about changing "home page" to the more universal "shift-command-h".

I think i do that far more often than showing my History...
 
I think the home page link could be changed as well. I never use a home page :\
