Is there a way to add a keyboard shortcut to launch a Shortcut on the iPad? I’d like a keyboard shortcut for the Reminders Shortcut shown below. I created a keyboard shortcut on the MBP but I don’t see a way to do so on the iPad.
Any help will be appreciated.
Far as I remember, one (the only?) way to do this was to turn on “full keyboard access”—
I am not sure when this happened, but when you enable full keyboard access on iPadOS, then you can assign global keyboard shortcuts for individual shortcuts!
So now I can add tasks from any app just like on the mac!
What a game changer.
Settings → accessibility → keyboards → commands
It is quite fiddly to activate the “Done” button of shortcuts’ text entry pop up with just the keyboard. Maybe I can configure this.
And i have to get used to the blue frames of full keyboard access. …
I haven’t seen any mention of this, so I figured I’d post it for others. I stumbled on the following help doc when working with my new Magic Keyboard.
In this doc, you can see it tells you that you can “customize” the keyboard shortcuts on the iPad. I didn’t think there’d be much here but it turns out that you can create keyboard shortcuts to any “Shortcuts” you have on your device.
I can now mimic many commands I have on my Mac with iPadOS:
CTRL+OPT+Space = Add new task to Things
There are gotchas, however.
Wow, that is great; I did not know that was possible. May I ask what the “gotchas” are before I proceed?
