    Doesn't work with maya 2022

  • Excellent, Here's a tip I found on official site

    The hotkey function can be used to manage the command search widget. This command will set focus to the widget.
    Python Script for Hotkey:

    import commandSearch; commandSearch.focus()

  • such potential

    Works well but not very speed friendly. It takes longer to use a three-key hotkey combination and then click the option you want, than it takes to just go to the location of the thing you're after. Could be much better with two things - 1) single key hotkey 2) cycle search options with arrow keys 3) select search option with enter key. This is pretty standard these days and way faster. I'd also suggest a #4) make the search screen appear in the center of the monitor. Basically make it just like the one in hypergraph when you tab search for nodes :)

    I got a 4k screen and the app looks cramped, would love to see an update. Is it possible to use the applike a mouse flowing hot key? Like the space bar in Blender, or the 's' key in Fusion 360.
