COMMAND PALETTE PLUS
Overview of Command Palette Plus
This feature adds an extensive set of user generated and prebuilt commands to help users push Roam to new places. Navigate and manipulate your Roam environment with a bunch of handy commands, all without losing context.
How to Use
To trigger the native Roam Command Palette, simply trigger either
CMD+p (Mac) or
CTRL+p (Windows). An input dialog should appear on your screen, allowing you to start typing to search for the command you would like to perform.
Command Palette+ adds all of its commands to this palette with the prefix
(WB). They often will also have a shortcut at the end of the command label, for quicker access to specific commands. These commands are context aware: they are aware of where you triggered the command and how many blocks were previously selected. The list of commands that are added are detailed below:
Working with Blocks
Move Blocks - Moves the currently selected block or blocks to another location in your graph. Many combinations of moves exist:
Move to top or bottom of page.
Move to page, but then open it in sidebar or main window.
Move it and leave behind a block reference
Sending references to top or bottom
Pull Blocks - Pull a block from another location in your graph into the current location.
Commands for pulling a block's children are also available.
Pull References - Pull a page's references into the current page as block references
A remove option also available that removes the original reference from the source block.
Jump to block - Jumps to another block in your graph. This opens the whole page but scrolls the block in view.

Working with Inboxes
You can define commonly used destination points for moving items to other locations in the graph, similar to an inbox. You can have multiple named inboxes as destinations in your graph, and you can define inboxes anywhere in your graph. The structure of an inbox looks like the following:
Each child block parameter starts with the name of the parameter, followed by the value. The child block parameters are defined as follows:
Name: Name that will appear in the command palette
Page: (OPTIONAL) Page name for this inbox. Default is today's DNP
Text: (OPTIONAL) finds block with Text on the page, and blocks are set to the children of this block. The first block to match the text will be used for this
Location: (OPTIONAL) Defines if new blocks should be put at the top or bottom. Top is the default. Valid values include:
Blockref: (OPTIONAL) leave a block ref when moving the selected blocks to the Inbox if true. Leave the block and send a block reference if reverse. Default is false. Valid values include:
Users: (OPTIONAL) comma separated list of email address. This is the email address of the user for roam. If their email is in this list, they will see this Inbox action, otherwise note.
If newly defined inboxes are not appearing in the command palette, fire the "Refresh Inboxes" command from the command palette.
