Cannot use Ctrl-R to insert horizontal rule


(Barneedhar Vigneshwar) #1

So, I am used to inserting horizontal rule with Ctrl-R on Stack Exchange. It seems like discourse supports that shortcut too. But for now, it only refreshes the page even when the entry box is active.

Surely a bug no?

Also, on a Mac you have issues as Cmd+R is the page refresh… And it is not overridden

Yeah, I think the issue is that Ctrl+R is refresh in some browsers and as @NanoGeek noted cannot be overridden.

The other shortcuts seem to work:

Ctrl+Q is blockquoe

Ctrl+B is bold

etc. I agree that Ctrl+R works on meta.stackoverflow’s editor though, which is theoretically the same PageDown so… odd.

Any progress on fixing this?

Ctrl + R is listed on the editor tooltip as the shortcut for HR, but in Firefox and Chromium on Ubuntu, it just refreshes the page. (I haven’t tested other OS/browsers.)

Either change the shortcut or remove the tooltip would seem to be better than the status quo, which is just plain confusing.

Let’s remove the tip, to be honest it’s not something that really helps much

This is now ctrlaltr , so everything is working right
