ctrl+a and ctrl+c are important to support normal copy&paste operation. Use different hotkeys for approval and cancel.
Comment 1 Tarek Loubani 2010-11-04 09:30:21 PDT
Perhaps approve can be ctrl-enter and ctrl-esc could be cancel?

Whatever it is, it might be nice to have them under the button text for the important ones. e.g.,

approve <br/> [ctrl-enter]

Thanks for that proposal. I agree with both. We'll try to implement that although I cannot promise that we'll find a cross-browser / cross-OS way to catch esc in JavaScript. Return will not be a problem, I think. The change is scheduled for 2.3.4 which unfortunately will take a bit to come out. Maybe I find a way to provide a patch earlier as this really improves usability quite a bit.

As far as the hotkey hint is concerned: This is already implemented. Hover your mouse pointer over the buttons or other UI elements and you'll see whether they have a hotkey attached. That's how MS Office and many other applications do it.

Thank you. I had looked and not seen the hover hint before, but it is obviously there.
