Is there a shortcut for "Change block type"?

Really enjoying using Datalore for exploratory data analysis. Particularly because I can log in from anywhere (even my tablets!) and use my notebooks. However…

I like to use a good mix of code cells and markdown but it is annoying to have to keep clicking the “Change block type” button every time I want to switch. I haven’t been able to find a keyboard shortcut anywhere for this functionality - does one exist?



Hi, Jon!

Thank you for your input, I will upvote the related tickets in our tracker and ask the developers if it can be implemented soon.

Hi Igro

Thanks. Seems like it would be a good addition to the existing expansive list of shortcuts. And probably not too difficut to implement.

Hi @guitarmanjon

We’ve added such a shortcut, currently it’s Ctrl+M. It may be changed in the near future, at least on Windows.


Hello @artem.borzilov

:clap: :clap: Fantastic. Thank you so much. I know it seems like a small thing but it will speed up workflow given how often I change blocks from code to markup.


edit: forgot to say that I’ve tried it already and it works a treat!
