#51187 closed feature request (reported-upstream)

Feature Request: Block Editor shortcuts

Reported by: courane01's profile courane01 Owned by:

When we type / in to the post editor, frequently used blocks are displayed. Typing /hr results in a horizontal line block.

Proposal: extend this to include specific headings, such as typing /h2, /h3, etc resulting in the appropriate heading block.

@courane01 Thanks for the suggestion!

This issue covers adding those heading shortcuts to the block editor:

If you want a shortcut to use now, the markdown-style with hashes currently works:

  • Typing ## (two hashes) plus a space at the beginning of a paragraph block converts it to a heading block with h2 level.
  • Similarly, typing 3-6 hashes plus a space creates lower-level heading blocks.
  • For level 1, you could use the hash to create switch the block type at a lower level and then adjust the level.

Please feel free to continue the discussion on the GitHub issue.
