Would love a system-wide keyboard shortcut

I constantly, all day, use Simplenote on my Mac. I have it setup with custom system-wide hot-keys for searching, new notes, pinning which I find a huge help in actually using the app for all of my reference links, info, etc. that I need at my fingertips. The custom shortcuts are being enabled by Keyboard Maestro, but I hope they add functionality because I’m sure a lot of people would find it super useful.

I LOVE what they’ve done on iOS, so I hope that comes to the Mac soon too. Better typography, search keyword highlighting INSIDE the note (this is a BIG ONE).

Awesome app, syncing is flawless and fast. IN and OUT. SImplicity at it’s best.
