Hi! First, thank you for creating such a great software and community!
But to the point: When I type (and it’s the way everyone in Poland types it) Polish diacritics “ś” on my keyboard by pressing right alt + s, search popup pops up, capturing the text that follows. This isn’t a big problem, but it’s very annoying. Is there a way to change it or turn it off ?
I just upgraded today and this problem also appears on this site, so this upgrade probably caused the described behaviour to appear (right alt is, I suppose, equivalent to ctrl+alt).
Hmm. I can’t get any alt-S to search. Perhaps you should send @sam your keyboard. (Obviously not a real solution, but he might be able to help.)
More specifically. sharing your specific keyboard layout would likely be helpful. Please don’t ship Sam your keyboard .
It’s Polish QWERTY – with AltGr (and I already wrote to Sam).
One more thing – it probably only affects Windows, as it maps (as I understand) AltGr to ctrl+alt; I tested Mac a moment ago and it’s ok there.
Grrr, this is a hard one to win, CTRL+ALT+s was a change I made cause CTRL+s conflicted with Firefox.
Can I detect AltGr from JS so I can still keep this or do I need to move the shortcut?
We use this keyboard shortcut to enter to the text “ś”, which can be entered with the following combinations:
It pisses me of when the search engine activates at that time - one of my users drew my attention to it. We very often use such signs, so I would like to ask you to change this
I am fine to change it but its hard to find something that does not conflict… that is all…
Even CTRL + F (without ALT) would be good. It doesnt affect at our language.
I have an idea of how this can be done for the benefit of everyone.
By default - the same keyboard shortcuts for everyone.
Someone wants to have shortcuts suitable for their language - you can add an “locale_shortcuts = pl” style option to config and for other languages, and so on.
It’s hard to reconcile everyone in terms of keyboard shortcuts, so I think it doesn’t make sense to do it universally for all languages.
CTRL+F is search in most browsers. That triggers our search for me.
It works on long topics but short topics when you are composing you can not use that shortcut cause you get in page search.
Anyway changed it to CTRL+ALT+F for now so this is resolved
