Ability to see hotkey binds by pressing the hotkey.

Hello,
I have a couple of other apps that have this functionality and it's killer. Probably my favorite implementation is in Reaper (http://reaper.fm/) where there is a button that says "Find hotkey" (it actually says "find shortcut" but in NC it should say hotkey) and when you click it a little pop-up shows up and you can enter the hotkey and it will immediately scroll to and highlight that command in the list of hotkeys.

Not sure how much work that would be to implement, but just thought I would mention it because it really is helpful when setting a hotkey or if you can't remember what a hotkey does. :-)

There is a freeware app called CheatSheet: https://www.mediaatelier.com/CheatSheet/

You just press & hold the CMD key, and you'll get a floating window with all available keyboard shortcuts in the frontmost application. There is no search, but maybe it will help for the time being.

There's also a paid-for app, KeyCue, which is marginally better, but no search functionality either afaik: https://www.ergonis.com/products/keycue/
