Search formatting in Splunk 6.5.0 for easier readability

Path Finder

I saw a feature in Splunk 6.5.0 where you can press a single button in the search bar and it will autoformat the query so it's far easier to read. Does anyone know what this shortcut is?

There are two defects filed about non-English keyboards and the search formatting: SPL-130405 and SPL-135260. In an upcoming release, there will be an enhancement so that you can use Command-shift-f.

Can you get a backslash by typing Ctrl + alt + "º ª \" (the first key to the left of " 1 ! | " )?

also be aware (at least on MAC) that browser plugins like 1password etc, may step on the shortcut, so it become fn + cmd + \\
