WordPress 4.3 was release yesterday and it comes with some awesome shortcuts in the visual editor that will save you time when writing content. To update to 4.3, you will see two links in your Dashboard to update or if you are on a Managed Host then the host will update WordPress for you. Dashboard With Update Messages  

The new Visual Editor shortcuts are :

–   for unordered list

1. for numbered lists

## for h2 heading ### for h3 heading #### for h4 heading

If you do happen to forget, you can click on the help icon in the WordPress visual editor to remind yourself 🙂 Visual Editor Help Icon   For a demo of these new shortcuts, you can see the replay of my Pericope!! ( be warned it did go off on some tangents in the end – haha ) I should also mention that there is no shortcut for the h1 tag. I am assuming there is no shortcut for that because your title should be your h1 tag (or site title on the homepage). There should only be 1 h1 tag on the page for search engine optimization so I’m guessing that’s why it’s not there 🙂
