What actionButtons do you use?

For a little while now, the action buttons (top right buttons in the UI) have been configurable in SETTINGS: SETTINGS

What are y’all using it for? My only adjustment is adding a button for Quick Note:


actionButtons:
- icon: file
  command: "{[Quick Note]}"
- icon: home
  command: "{[Navigate: Home]}"
  description: "Go to the index page"
- icon: book
  command: "{[Navigate: Page Picker]}"
  description: Open page
- icon: terminal
  command: "{[Open Command Palette]}"
  description: Run command

Anybody using this for something surprising or useful?

What is your plan, if you will add a new icon in the future?

If you were customized the buttons with actionButtons, it wouln’t appear and you would miss that.

No plan. Just collecting creative uses of this feature. This is not a “I’m looking for stuff to remove” thread :wink:

Fine, but my take would be to let plugins add their own buttons to actionButtons. Maybe there should be a way to disable or reorg buttons, but primirarly I expect buttons to “magically” apper from plugins.

I literally feared to override the buttons because I feared to miss out new buttons.

Nothing special

Very new to to silverbullet, looking at editing these action buttons, I guess editing !SETTINGS should not be done as its grey and comes up in a red banner could not save page, retrying in 10 seconds.

This is where you would make those edits. Any chance you can tell if there are any errors in your logs or console?

You edit them in your space’s SETTINGS page. Since this is a meta page, you get to it via the Meta Picker (Ctrl-Shift-k or Cmd-Shift-k on Mac) or by running the Navigate: Open SETTINGS command

there is a SETTINGS page and a !SETTINGS page, the 2nd is populated with the stock settings, the 1`st is just a link to the 2nd i think

there are no errors on the logging ( docker ) on linux.

edit :–
ok sorted, there are user settings and system settings pages ) which are protected )
