Input (cmd or hotkey) from external application to directly open specific notebook?

Hey there all,
I was wondering if there was any way to send a command line parameter, or perhaps assign a specific hotkey to automatically open up a specific notebook? I wanted to either write a small application or use something like AutoIT or AutoHotKey to look at my currently focused application/project and then open a note-taking/task list app directly to something specific to that project. I have yet to find an application that can do this, but this seemed pretty full-featured, so I was hoping it had some sort of mechanism to allow this?

I have been searching through the options menus and such, but I can’t seem to even find settings for hotkeys?

If anyone knows how I might be able to go about doing this in Joplin, I would greatly appreciate being pointed in the right direction. If it’s not possible, can anyone recommend an application that might be able to do it?

Thanks,
-MH

You could make AutoHotKey send these keys:

Ctrl+G (Open Goto Anything)

Then @… followed by the notebook name.

And Enter to validate. That would open your notebook. You might want to leave 100ms or so between each keystroke to give the GUI enough time to update.

Great, I will give that a try. Thank you very much!
