Some hotkeys for nano are listed in the bottom depends on window scaling. How can I switch through this menu to see all the available hotkeys?

  • In my experience, nano detects window sizes (and resizes) and scales the bottom bar accordingly, but the options remain the same. Can you show a screenshot of what exactly is happening with you?

You can press ctrl+G to see all the nano shortcuts in a new buffer. If you want to come back to editing your file, you just need to press ctrl+X one time.
