How to Change Behaviour of Escape Key?

By default, when you're in your notes list and press Escape key, SideNotes goes back to folder list. And when you press it again, it hides the app. You can set this behaviour to one of 4 options:

  • Leave current folder or hide SideNotes (default)
  • Leave current folder – SideNotes won't disappear once you press the Escape key again
  • Hide SideNotes – the app will disappear immediately, whether you're in notes view or in folder list
  • None - Escape key is disabled completely

To change the Escape key behaviour, you need to open Settings, go to Shortcuts and choose an option from: ⎋ (Escape).
