It's entirely plausible some people will prefer cmd+n, or the new note
button, or a menu item, to typing into a quick entry box.
I don't think it likely that anyone but power users will experience
quick entry as being an impenetrable interface like a command line.
The point of the drop down menu is that you never have to type /search
or /note, you select the action you want to perform and just type in a
one-line title for a new note. No arcana required.
