~ Is the Command Shortcut for Power Users

If you are typing and don't want to move your mouse to the command input, you can create a command by typing a sentence that starts with the "~" (tilde) symbol and pressing the Compose hotkey (Control + Enter , Command + Enter).

tip: This works only in the INK Document Editor.

To try it:

  1. Place your cursor in the document in an empty line
  2. Type: ~write a paragraph about the benefits of brand building
  3. Press Compose, or use the keyboard shortcut (Ctrl+Enter, CMD+Enter)

Understanding Context

You don't always have to give details. If you already have details in your text, INK will consider the past few paragraphs as context.

If you don't want INK to look back that far, you can just add ### to your text, and INK won't look back further.

Now that you understand how context works, here are some more examples

Rewriting Context Text

  • Summarize the context in 3 sentences
  • Rewrite the context using academic vocabulary
  • Rewrite the context to explain it to a 5th grader
  • Rewrite the context to improve readability
