Welcome to Liquid!



Please restart to register Liquid | Flow as a Service in order to allow the keyboard shortcut to work.



To use Liquid | Flow


  1. Select text
  2. Keyboard shortcut (default is ⌘-shift-2)
  3. Choose a command through quick shortcuts (or mousing around, as you learn the shortcuts):


For example: R for References then W for Wikipedia.




To Change The Shortcut


To change the Keyboard Shortcut to the more convenient ⌘-space (or anything else you prefer), open System Preferences, click on Keyboard, make sure you are in the Shortcuts tab, then, in the column on the left:


1 Click on Spotlight

   disable ⌘-space


2 Click on Services

   scroll down to Liquid and double-click on the current Liquid | Flow shortcut

   set it to be ⌘-space





NOTE: IF you have more than one input source (such as different languages) Click on Sources and disable ⌘-space. I have no idea why Apple has made this shortcut the same for Spotlight and Choose Input Source, but such it is.




To Add a Search


If you have the full version of Liquid | Flow or if you have upgraded, you can add any search engine you like:


  1. Click on the 'gears' icon on the right hand side of Liquid | Flow
  2. Click on Commands
  3. Click on '+' in the lower left hand corner
  4. Follow the instructions shown to add a search URL to Liquid | Flow




Speed Tip


Instead of Search/Google, just hit ‘enter' to search Google and ‘shift-enter’ to go to the first item on Google search. Hit 'spacebar' to Copy/As Citation from the web.
