It would be amazing if there was a keyboard shortcut that would pop open this panel with search focused and it would support keyboard controls to select a component and place it on the canvas
This is no longer relevant with the new panel model: as we have a shortcut to open the Insert Menu now (i). :-)
@Benjamin den Boer: thank you for finding an excellent solution to my feature request :)
So happy to see this implemented with the "Plus" element and "i" shortcut! It's all I wanted 🤑 @Aroa Gil Bo 👏🏻
@Sascha Trinkaus: Niiceee to hear that! ;) We got your back Sascha! 🥳
This would be similar to inserting a symbol via Sketch Runner. Very useful for often placed components.
We have a shortcut control + 1 ~ 4 targeting at different panels. For example control + 2 will open the Components panel. It doesn't automatically focus on the search input tho, you could press tab to focus it after the panel is opened.
