Sketch # 2 show an entry field at the bottom. This entry field shall be used for most user entries. This idea is of course stolen from Emacs. The idea is that you can run a lot of commands from there, even if you don’t know the shortcut for the command.
I probably will use the classic “Alt-x” or better “M-x” shortcut for the entry field. This is meant as a homage to Emacs.
This little field seams not very significant, but I think it helps a lot to
- give the user a lot of power and
- streamlining the editing experience
at the same time.
