Quick find

When you’re working on a big project, it can take a lot of clicks to get around. This is a problem on computers as well. Apple created something to fix it: Spotlight search. And people took that even further by creating Alfred.

So we’re taking a page out of these books and creating our own version for Webflow, which we’re calling quick find. How does it work? Easy: hit CMD + E (CTRL + E on Windows) in the Designer and search to your heart’s content.

Find stuff. Switch pages. Hop into a Collection. No mouse-ing around.
