Hotkeys workaround

I really miss a keyboard shortcut to collapse/expand the formula bar (and much more). Anyone made a workaround or perhaps know of a tool / browser plugin that would allow for certain parts of a webUI to be associated with a hotkey?
I am tempted to try creating a custom js-script to just bind a button to the formula bar. I am no expert with the mouse and constantly opening and closing the formula input is extremely tiresome. The formula bar is almost always on top of the preview, and selecting the items in the sidebar is not always easy and would also require precision mouse clicking.

Re: Hotkeys workaround

WORKAROUNDNOT A SOLUTION:
Add attribute "accessKey" to the button in html with "inspect" (on chrome).

'accessKey="a"' binds the [alt]-a hotkey to toggle the. use whatever character or number you like but the meta-key (alt) depends on the OS and Browser (see documentation)

Re: Hotkeys workaround

Hi @hjaf ,

Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?

Do you want to collapse/expand the formula bar within your PowerApps Studio via pressing a hotkey?

 

Currently, within PowerApps, there is no hotkey associated with the Formula bar within PowerApps Studio. If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:
