Abstract : We present the Hotkey Palette, a quasi-modal interface enabling quick retrieval of chosen documents and windows by defining and triggering keyboard shortcuts either on the physical keyboard or with an on-screen keyboard. The Hotkey Palette improves on previous work by providing flexible contextualization of shortcuts that leverages document hierarchies, and by merging document and window retrieval in a single interface. The report describes the design and implementation of the interface and presents novel use cases for document and window management.
