#WordPress changed from Alt-Shift to Alt #keyboard #shortcuts and now breaks your regular browser Alt shortcuts. @wordpressdotcom

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/07/23

A couple of months ago, I created a nice post listing all #WordPress Editor #keyboard #shortcuts for both Windows and Mac OS X.

As of a few days ago, WordPress.com changed their Alt-Shift shortcuts into Alt shortcuts.

For instance, Alt-Shift-d (strike through) is now Alt-d, thereby blocking the original Alt-d (which for most browsers on Windows brings you to the address bar).

They violate one of the basic GUI principles: keep existing keyboard shortcuts as they are.

On Windows based browsers that means: keep Alt and Ctrl based shortcuts. Alt-Shift, Ctrl-Shift and Ctrl-Alt-Shift shortcuts are OK.

I haven’t tested WordPress on my MacBook air yet (as I don’t think the end-users should be the WordPress.com beta testers, though they probably think the world at large is a big beta-test garden).

I have asked WordPress.com to change the shortcuts back to what they were.
