⌘E Use Selection for Find Shortcut

7 March 2014 · 1 minute read

While using TextMate 2 I found the most useful keyboard shortcut I have learned in a long time, which works in all Mac OS X applications: ⌘E, found at the TextMate blog:

Together, these three key combos form a super fast means to navigate Find operations without even needing to stop off at a dialog first. Just select something, throw it on the Find clipboard with ⌘E, and start jumping to matches with ⌘G and/or ⇧⌘G.
