Bubble hotkeys OMG

Five years. Five years it took me to discover that Bubble has a bunch of hotkeys that I’ve never used :scream_cat: :sob: :joy:

Leaving this here as a tip in case anyone’s as slow as me to pick this up :sweat_smile: efficient Bubbling, here I come!


Thank you!

I picked up the Ctrl + E for centring from a Bubble webinar a couple of months back and wondered if there were more.


I find the CMD-click one to be the most useful, personally…


Wow, this is amazing! I print it asap :smile:


Funny, I saw that particular one and went “I could’ve used this 1,000,000 times”… Same boat :joy:


I am lazy to reconfigure Windows to actually be able to use this shortcut with Bubble. When I try to use the equivalent key in Windows … the smart Windows menu pops up…

Do not get me wrong … I think it is great and very needed! … grrrr I am going to find a way to change this in my Win10 settings …

I just started out with Bubble and I am absolutely surprised that a program that has such richness im functionality offers so little keyboard shortcuts. I am doing a course and see the teacher do everything by mouse. On my Mac I do everything with shortcuts, from launhing apps to basically all other things - so I am pretty shocked to see the amount of mouse action needed to navigate on bubble.

BTW - there is a Chrome plugin from ZeroQode that offers way more shortcuts -his is where it gets really functional.

Awesome! Thanks forsharingthe hotkeys with us @petter, and making it a downloadable. Printed out, it now sits on the wall in front me, above my machine.

@peter.grabec I’m glad my ignorance could be of some help :sweat_smile:

On a serious note, yeas, I kind of agree! You can suggest it in the Bubble idea board, and maybe they’ll include some more shortcuts in an upcoming hackathon.

Command-Click is a huge time saver…thanks @petter

Command-Drag (from anywhere but the corners) creates a copy of the element…very useful too.

Pasting the list of keyboard shortcuts from the editor for better visibility and search engine indexing. These keyboard shortcuts are likely to be a very valuable timesaving tool for people in this forum. :slight_smile:

I also wanted to include a handy keyboard shortcut reference app I built for myself. This will create a slim popup that you can ‘dock’ to the right of your editor while learning the keys.
