With this data pack, you can sneak + jump to vertically scroll your inventory into the hotbar.

In other words, you will be able to access your entire inventory without opening your inventory!
While scrolling, 4 squares show up above your hotbar that indicate which row is currently selected. So if you remember in which row a certain item was, you can get to it without getting confused.

This data pack only works with 1.17 snapshots!

Install Instructions
This is a datapack, it can easily be used in any world or server without any difficulties.
Simply drop the downloaded zip file in the "datapacks" folder of your world save (<world>/datapacks).
Then open your world and do

In case the datapack doesn't automatically get enabled, run:
/datapack enable "file/[​datapack folder name].zip"

I encountered a bug! What do I do now?

I test all my creations, but bugs happen no matter how long you test something. Whenever someone experiences a bug, I do my best to fix the issue. You can help me by providing any useful information. You can never give me enough information, but please send it in a DM instead of placing it in the comments. You can still place a one-liner in the comments stating the issue to make the community aware, but that alone isn't enough to help me fix the issue.
  • Checklist: Are you using the right version? Did you do /reload after dropping the datapack in? After /reload, does the datapack show up green in /datapack list?
  • What is the issue? Does the datapack not seem to be working at all or is there a specific feature you are having issues with?
  • What happened? Please give me all the steps needed to reproduce the issue. The faster I can experience it, the faster I can solve it.
  • What did you expect to happen instead? This helps me understand your point of view and determine if the issue described is actually the issue I need to fix. The bug you are experiencing could just be a side effect of something else that doesn't behave as expected.

1.16 would require a rewrite. It's made for 1.17 for a reason =)
(But no worries, 1.17 is in the pre-release phase now, the full release should be soon-ish)

Yeah there won't be 4 hotbars like the picture, but it'll basically cycle your entire inventory to swap out the hotbar with a different row.
