Ctrl-k is a combination commonly used in UNIX systems (including OS X) for killing text (basically delete + cut). You can learn more about it here or just do a search for “kill yank unix”. Right now the text editor hijacks this combination to insert pre-formattted text, breaking OS level key bindings.
I’d like to submit a PR to rebind pre-formatted text to
Ctrl-j, but I want to know if you are interested in this change before I get started (if you are not interested I think I’ll just release something in the form of a browser plugin and paste a link here for the three other nerds like me ).
PS: The same case could be made for Ctrl-b, Ctrl-l on Windows and maybe Ctrl-r. Is this editor the same one used in StackOverflow? Same issues apply there.
