Command Palette Shortcuts

Quick reference for myself: the shortcut to open the command palette (aka heads-up display) in various programs:
– intellij idea: C-S-a
– VS Code: C-S-p
– obsidian: C-p
– KDE: M-
– Github: C-k
– Libreoffice: S-

Not yet implemented (but coming): kate, krita

Background: The command palette is my favourite UI innovation of recent years, one I already find it hard to live without. One shortcut brings up a searchable list of commands, which permanently removes the hassle of browsing through menus. But every program has chosen its own shortcut to bring up the palette, and I find them hard to remember. Hence this cheat-sheet

[shortcuts are listed emacs-style: M is alt, C is ctrl, S is shift]
