Is there anyway to jump to the journal / home page directly even in the editing mode?

I would like to jump to the journal page directly no matter what I am doing, even if I am editing a block in some pages.

Is there anyway to accomplish this? Thanks!!!

Go to journal → g j
Hope that is what you are looking for.

Sorry but that’s not what I am looking for. When you are typing in a block, the shortcut can not be used. You can use them only after existing the typing through pressing Esc.

I am looking for a general way to escape to the home page no matter whether I am typing.

You can try remapping the shortcut in settings to something that uses cmd or ctrl.

You can use them only after existing the typing through pressing Esc.

I think you answered your own question there.
Type these keys on your keyboard: Esc g j
Works in edit mode and non-edit mode.
