Whenever I have to write a substantial amount of text — more than a few hundred words — then Markdown is my format of choice and Byword on Mac OSX my editor of choice. With its beautifully uncluttered, full-screen interface it makes writing both pleasurable and more productive.
But… if you really want to get the best out of Byword then a good knowledge of the keyboard shortcuts is essential. The last thing you want is to have to pause in full flow and take your hand off the keyboard to reach for the mouse or trackpad to indent a paragraph.
A new set of flashcards I have created and uploaded to Quizlet and Flashcard Exchange contains 60 of the most useful Byword shortcuts. As always, you can use them online or download them, free of charge, into your favourite flashcard app.
