We're transitioning Studio from Beta to Early Availability

Command menu

Some schema management tasks require completing a series of similar repeated actions with a lot of confirmation popups.

Hygraph Studio allows keyboard navigation through the command menu, which greatly speeds up the process.

#How it works

To trigger the popup search bar, simply use CMD+K (or CTRL+K in Windows).

Command menuCommand menu

Type in the search bar to filter the list of available actions. When calling the command menu, both the global functions - navigation, global commands - and context-specific commands are available.

Navigate the list of suggested actions using the Up/Down arrows on your keyboard, or your mouse-wheel. To confirm your selection, use the Enter key or a mouse click.
