Defa­ults
Hold the Alt-key while pressing the Settings menu to open defau­lts.json. This is useful when building your own setti­ng.j­son!
Keys
Key bindings are set in the "ke­ybi­ndi­ngs­" block as:
{ "­com­man­d":"c­mdN­ame­", "­key­s":"m­od+­key­"}
Acti­ons
Some commands take additional action arguments to modify the behaviour. See e.g. splitPane and copy.
