Disable Ctrl+Enter to submit post keyboard shortcut?

Was just a few lines into a reply on another Discourse site, and I managed to fat-finger something that submitted my post.

Did a bit of testing and seems like Ctrl+Enter would have been the culprit.

Is there any way to turn this off in user preferences?

This is quite standard on most sites as a submit keyboard shortcut. For example on Twitter:

You might be able to override it with some custom JavaScript.


No way, my first question on here is answered by the Jeff Atwood!

Anyway, I know what you mean, with the shortcut being in Outlook, Gmail, all over the place… I just normally disable it :slight_smile:

But no worries, I’ve got my answer about the Discourse functionality, will look into custom solutions if it starts to bother me too much.

Thanks for the great platform @codinghorror!
