Keyboard Shortcuts [Tip of the day]

During the next 2 weeks, we are going to publish one tip per day on how to optimize the feedly experience.

Today’s tip is keyboard shortcuts. Did you know that by pressing ? anywhere in the feedly application, you can see a list of keyboard shortcuts? Keyboard shortcuts can be very handing if you need to crunch through a lot of content quickly.

  1. My favorite isn’t even listed. It’s gh (go home?), which takes me to the start page (which is the Index, for me).

        1. I understand. I am sorry about this. If you are ruinnng chrome, you should be able to use command+ to zoom into the interface. We are looking at ways to make our grid more flexible to over a preference setting for the font-size. But it is going to require some work before we get there. Have a good evening.

    1. So cute!! Isn’t it funny how that works? It’s hard to imagine you have anryome room inside you to love someone, but somehow it just happens and you make room.

    2. What do you mean by dead? I see the cat’s eyes moving? ps sonehtimg is wrong with the comment board. I can’t see the text while I type, and have to highlight it to see what I did type?

  2. Could you add an “e” for email? It’s one of my most used sharing tools, and I’d love the shortcut. One for adding tags would be great as well – “;” perhaps, as “t” is taken.

    1. , but there are serious and ganirlg grammatical errors right from the beginning that suggest that the author is not a native speaker of English. The complete lack of content (except for the most obvious things like bestseller lists) suggests that the author has no familiarity with the Kindle at all.So what do we have? This book is essentially a scam exacerbated by a number of fake reviews. There are 3 accounts that have not only posted glowing reviews on all the same books, they’ve posted them in the same order! More are likely to follow. Don’t let yourself be tricked into wasting money on this, and if you have purchased it remember you can return it within 7 days (or longer if you really complain about being ripped off).

  3. Please fix the n/p shortcuts in full article view. Currently they do not work in full screen view. I really miss this feature as I used it constantly in Google Reader. Thanks for keeping RSS alive!

  4. Isn’t there an option to mark a post as unread, either through a keyboard shortcut or a button? I can’t find any way to mark posts as unread!!!

    1. There is. “m”, does this, but it’s been broken. Same for the “/” shortcut which is suppose to open the Add Content panel.
      I honestly didn’t think Feedly would still have so many bugs so close to Google Reader’s shutdown. I’ve been complaining about a video podcast bug for ages now, but no response whatsoever..

  5. Please provide an option to configure the shortcuts. I find n & p really awkward to type without losing mental focus on the item content, and would like to be able to use the keypad left-arrow & right-arrow, just like I do in every other case I can think of that involves stepping through a list.

      1. Hear hear! Just made the jump from Google Reader and this is the one thing really irritating me. At least make this configurable.

  6. Todo está perfecto, es estupendo, pero… ¿y el español) ¿cuándo los paises de habla hispana podrán disfrutar del mejor sucesor de Google Reader y lo podrán entender?

    1. Great tip, Lori! Having learned that from you, I stteard poking around and found that holding down the comma/exclamation point key pops up an apostrophe. Now if I could just convince Apple to provide a dash/hyphen popup for the period key.

    1. Yes This!. I hate having to switch back to the feedly tab after opening a new tab. This is especially annoying with my tab heavy workflow.

      1. For the old feedly version that works with the chrome plugin, there is another plugin that lets you define a key for background, but it doesn’t work with
        Would be nice to have this option.

    1. Not to mention shift-j doesn’t seem to stay consistent in what it actually does. If you have a folder opened, it goes to the next folder, so if you have a feed open, it should logically jump to the next feed, which it only does sporadically. I often have a feed open, but shift-j takes me to the homepage even when there are more feeds to be read.

    1. It works in any latin language, not only english. Of course they should fix this for cyrillic or any other non-latin language.

      This can be solved by adding an option to personalize shortcuts layout.

    2. I’m still trying to fruige out what I’ll use instead of Google Reader. So bummed.I use the WordPress app for blogging on the go. I don’t use it often, but uploading pics from it is much easier than I would have ever expected.Liz recently posted

  7. In google reader it’s possible to go through your feed using just the space key which is very convinient. Behaves like this: On long articles space scrolls down, when you’ve reached the end of an article it jumps to the next (simliar to ‘j’ in feedly), when you have no more unread articles in the category space jumps to the next one (like ‘shift+j’ in feedly).

    1. +1

      This is one of the bests features in Google Reader. You can keep reading and reading with the touch of a button. Is the best option for longer articles.

    2. I would subscribe instantly if this shortcut was implemented !

      Please feedly implement the spacebar shortcut Google Reader had it, Digg Reader has it , theOldReader has it, why not feedly !!!

  8. please add the “t” shortcuts!!!! in googlereader it allows you to quickly add a custom tag to the read news!!!!

    1. agree with the t shortcuts by andy, and also allow use to type in the tag instead of choosing it one by one

    2. Wow! You just took care of a huge part of my to do list for gardening. This is my first year and I’m very exietcd! This is wonderful! Thanks!Can’t wait for the fall schedule!

  9. Since the upgrade, I have lost all my Saved For Later feeds. This is hours of lost work. Can they be retrieved? Also I had feeds marked as read show up again. It’s a big mess. Not happy.

    Sent from my iPad

  10. I have to give Feedly credit for an awesome experience.

    In the past I’ve had several RSS readers (including Google Reader) that I had – but never used. Feedly has changed how I collect content.


  11. I honestly think you guys should be squashing bugs at this point. Feedly is sitting on the edge of annoyance for me, and so close to Google Reader’s shut down too. I’ve submitted numerous bug reports too, but have never gotten any solutions. I’ve kind of given up on feature requests at this point.

    1. Hi MarciaI was so dismayed to see it will go. I sarettd using it about a year ago and now subscribe to about 100 blogs.I looked into Feedly yesterday. It has an app for iPhone. My Reader has two categories: subscriptions and blogs I follow’ via Google Friends Connect. Not sure if the latter will go away.Either way, boo hoo.

  12. Please add a shortcut key to save directly to Pocket (without opening another tab). One way to do this would be to provide an option to configure the “save” feature to save to Pocket. Or, you could provide integration with IFTTT so Feedly saved items could be sent to Pocket.

    1. I would llike to second this – I have a ton of feeds and its a real hassle to have to open each individual story in order to just send it over to my pocket.


    2. Guys just so you know.. you can use IFTTT on the web to create a ‘recipe’ so that everything you ‘save for later’ in feedly, will auto-get saved to pocket. Then I have another one which auto emails me whenever something is saved to pocket as well.. but that’s just my personal preference.

  13. I using a not “n” and “p”, which compared to google reader, have the nice feature to automatically mark as read. I use also “m” when I want the item to be kept unread.

    My most wished improvement is about the “v” key. I’m using firefox. Current, it open the article in a new tab and firefox automatically switch to the new tab. Firefox can be configured to avoid it to switch to the new tab when opening a link, but it does not work with the “v” bindkey.

  14. I find the Mark All Read shortcut, shift+m, rather awkward to hit with one hand. I prefer the Google Reader shortcut for this which was shift+a.

  16. The shortcut to go to “Saved For Later” items should be “gs”, not “gl”, to be 1) consistent with Google Reader and 2) consistent with the shortcut “s” that marks an item as Saved For Later.

    Or at least, please add “gs” as an alias for “gl”, as it’s currently unused

  17. I used to use “f” a lot in Google Reader when the shortcut meant “full screen view”. Could you make that available (and ideally replacing the facebook shortcut too)?

  18. Feedly has done a great job in a short time to make itself a viable replacement for Google Reader. Some keyboard shortcuts are missing, but hopefully they’re coming. I know I would love to see a quick tag ‘t’ shortcut, ‘gh’ for home, spacebar for moving forward by screen for long articles, and a save to pocket shortcut (perhaps a ‘shift + s’ for all sharing options like email, twitter, facebook, pocket, etc). Keep up the great work.

  19. After having considered many alternatives, you keyboard shortcuts made the deal for me. On thing, though: shift-m is currently not very effective as a keyboard shortcut, as you have to use your mouse to confirm.

    (A shortcut to hide the side panel at will would be great, too.)

      1. I ended up in the same place. I like the feel of Feedly (I already use Flipboard on the iPad, so it wasn’t a big adujmtsent). I’m still getting used to adding new RSS feeds, etc, and I took the opportunity to clean up (reorganize and delete) my existing feeds in Google Reader before they discontinue it.

  20. Is there something you guys can do about caps lock and the keyboard shortcuts? It makes me really sad when I hit the ‘m’ key with caps lock on and mark ALL my stuff as read. I use caps for my vent key so its happened a few times.

  21. Keyboard Shortcuts : Ergonimically “mark all read” should be something which can be done with single hand preferably left hand eg Shift+a/z. This way you can use mouse + keyboard for faster work.

  22. These keyboard shortcuts don’t seem to work with the Cloud version that I use with Internet Explorer 10. Will they be added to that implementation?

    What I want to do is be able to be using a list view and looking at the details of one article and then with a single keystroke that is very easy to find without looking (like an up-arrow or a toolbar button or spacebar or – or + key of keypad) move to the next article above (then next most recent article) in that feed. (And stop when I reach the top of the feed.) Sometimes I go top-down, but when there hundreds of articles in a feed I need to go bottom-up (read oldest first before they expire).

  23. In fact people are attempting to make their own fake ID cards at home If you’ve purchased a Leupold scope you think could possibly be a fake, check for the warranty card information Another big difference is that the dial features Roman numerals, instead of Arabic numbers, making it more appropriate for a child who has already learned to tell time You will be able to purchase Nixon watches from the web at a price which is much lower than the retail stores This will keep the Omega Speedmaster view gears moving, as a result preventing the lubricants from hardening Upon request, the rescue plan into three categories: One is a program for assistance, targeting not only by the designated medical center medical evaluation to meet indications for Gleevec, but also must be audited before the illness is minimal needs for the families of patients; The second category is the total aid program, the object must not be assistance to participate in Medicare or can not participate in Medicare reimbursement for the cost of Gleevec treated patients

So just remember to wear 2 shoes that promises you enough grip around the balls within your cheap nike dunks If I were a burglar, I will first observe security system and the eyes that are watching around the department store especially eyes and angles of video camera that can catch me when I start stealing To accomplishment off this amazing celebration, IWC featured a lottery BCBG Max Azria robe (en dessous), 360 $ Japan’s wrist watches were produced with almost exactly the same high standards because the Swiss wrist watches but somehow didn’t gain the prestige they deserved Some web sites may possibly nicely even supply the individuals far more discounts on bulk acquiring

  25. In Google Reader when you pressed Space while browsing a specific category you select Next article and it is marked as read. When the articles of the given category are all read the next Space you press transfers you immediately to the next category with unread articles. Can you please integrate this, because it was the most useful button for me and I did not have to use mouse or other key to change categories :(.

    j advances to next article, but Slashdot’s fancy comments widget highjacks focus and the j shortcut to cycle thru their own comments, meaning you have to use the mouse to click out or press shift tab about 20 times.

    1. I did totally agree with you. I did some evgiaelnsm about that, adding also the argument of accessibility. But I met a lot of people who are very basic users of the internet. The ones who have even difficulties in understanding the difference between Google and the address bar. And they repeatdly tell me oh I prefer when it opens in a new window, if not I’m lost and I can’t always go back to the original page .I think the target blank is bad is still true. But at the end, the belief that it is more disturbing for the user than staying in the same window does not seem to fit with what a large number of users feel.
