I had the Command Palette turned on, but didn’t really use it over several weeks. I’m so used to just clicking the Search box on the header.
When Command Palette is enabled, replace the search box with the message “Press Ctrl-K to Search” (replace Ctrl with the squiggly symbol on Mac ). This will remind me and get me into the practice of using Command Palette.
If this message is clicked by mouse, bring up the command palette anyway. (Because we all have muscle memory to scroll up to the header and click the search box when we want to search something!)
Also please remove the “/” key as shortcut for search box, or make it also bring up the command palette. I don’t see the need to have two UI features duplicating the search functionality.
