Getting Out of Trouble

Before starting, it’s helpful to know these keystrokes:

Keystroke(s) Action
Control-h Display the “Quick Reference Guide”
Control-c Abort the current command
Control-q Force-quit VisiData entirely
q Quit the current VisiData “sheet”
gq Quit all VisiData sheets and exit gracefully
Shift-U Undo
Shift-R Redo


Don’t worry about memorizing VisiData’s keystrokes. Very quickly, they’ll begin to feel intuitive. In the meantime, this one-page cheat sheet might help.
