Most controls are intuitive, e.g., all printable keys insert that character, arrow keys, home, end, page up, and page down all move the cursor appropriately. However, there are a few special controls introduced by nestingnote:

  • Tab: at the beginning of a line will indent the line, starting an inner nested list. Within the line, tab will split the line into fields similar to columns in a matrix.
  • Ctrl+k: toggles whether the current item in the nested list is collapsed, meaning that all items nested beneath it are hidden.
  • Ctrl+w: save the edits
