Throughout the course of its development (16 years and counting in the Delphi line), SuperMemo for Windows has been enabled with a multitude of options available in a myriad of contexts. All of them implemented with an intention to make the learning experience/process with SuperMemo yet more effective. In an ever-going effort to make the richness and depth of the program available to our users in as user-friendly manner as only possible, the feature set is kept being reorganized and (sometimes) even pruned. And, in recent few development cycles, by embracing the NUI (Natural User Interface) design philosophy we have gone as far as to intentionally avoid adding new buttons, menu items, options, etc. Yet we keep receiving complaints from confused students.
SuperMemo 15 attempts to solve this particular predicament by introducing SuperMemo Commander (available with Tools : Commander; alternatively, and more quickly, press Ctrl+Enter). The tool makes it possible for you to quickly execute (often deeply-buried) commands via mnemonic keyboard shortcuts.
For example, to open the Sleep Chart press:
You can create an alias for a selected mnemonic keyboard shortcut. To do that:
The following command set is easily expandable in future updates to SuperMemo 15. If you cannot remember a shortcut or need to often use a command available from a deeply nested menu or a button that is not part of your layout, send your request for new commands via e-mail.
In the top part of the dialog box, you can see the following three columns:
At the bottom, against the yellow background, you can read the description of the currently selected command.
