When I select a note I want to be able to write it right away. How can I automatically set the focus from the note selection to the editor? Currently I always need an additional click on the editor which is not known from any other program and so unfamiliar in use.
I wouldn't say any other program. I just tried two other note apps, Zettlr does what you describe but Trilium doesn't.
You can set shortcuts to change the focus (default
Ctrl + Shift + B for "Focus: Note body") or you can hit tab twice from a selected note (first focuses the title).

I didn't mean any other program, but those I know, like Visual Studio Code or Notepad++.

Doesn't seem to work, but if it was just in the title, it wouldn't be any help to me.
It should work? If focus is on the note list then hitting tab should take you to the title field and tab again should take you to the note body?
Ah, you meant the tab key. I thought you meant the note selection as a tab. That would work, but it's still an additional action.
Auto focus would be the only solution for me.
The issue I see is that if the focus is on the notelist pane (either from clicking or shortcut) then I would expect focus to stay there - i.e. so I can still browse up and down the list with arrow keys
What I could imagine would be a nice improvement on those lines would be double clicking the note or hitting return on it to move the focus to the note body (the latter of which is actually how the terminal app works).
I don't need to navigate with the arrow keys. So it's probably necessary to make it toggleable.
And yes, a double click would make it a bit faster.
Feel free to open a feature request for it but I've not seen reference to people wanting this functionality so far.
