When I’m using the Roon App, I want to quickly pull up a list of keyboard shortcuts without leaving the App, so I can quickly get the shortcut I need and stay in context.
It’s become a pretty standard paradigm for cross-platform apps / webapps to have keyboard shortcut “cheat sheets” … that is, you can bring up a view of applicable keyboard shortcuts without leaving the app.
I’ve seen these in Slack, Workflowy, Trello, Asana, Figma, elswehere.

So what is this about? Are you unable to find Roon’s shortcuts in
Settings? Is the presentation not fancy enough? Other suggestion? Please explain.
Possibly a new Roon user (and the screen is “buried” in settings)
Yeah, I had no idea that was under the sidenav. I’d been referencing the shortcuts page on the roon site.
While knowing this exists helps, having it 3 clicks and a couple scrolls away defeats the purpose somewhat: if someone is looking for keyboard shortcuts, they’re looking for a faster way.
Until shortcuts are in muscle memory, they’re “I know there’s a shortcut for opening search … but what’s the keystroke again?” So having a reference more readily at hand—especially one that doesn’t remove the user from the context they’re trying to perform an action on—would be nice.
File this under “onboarding” niceties: things that help users become more proficient, faster.
One could leave the shortcuts page open in a browser, but what’s the fun in that?!
