What happened to the keyboard shortcuts for BB formatting?

Postby December » Tue Oct 07, 2008 5:32 pm

Is it just me? I can't seem to get the control key to execute keyboard shortcuts for BB code anymore (ctrl-u for underline, ctrl-q for quote, etc). I would swear it was working on this site until about a week ago -- or am I thinking of the Old Lex?

You know, I'm almost 100% certain they did... I use them automatically every time I boldface anything so I'm pretty sure I'd have noticed a long time ago if it wasn't working (I've definitely had plenty of posts in bold here). I only noticed it about 7 -10 days ago.

ETA
Ok, go figure. It just started working again.
Bold.
quote
. http://www.URL.
Italic.

All these shortcuts (ctrl-B, ctrl-Q, ctrl-W, ctrl-I) seem to be ok again -- which they weren't yesterday!

Except for underline. Which still doesn't seem to work [I did that one manually with a mouse]. Instead Ctrl-U seems to highlight the UCP link at the top of the webpage.... Weird.

Yup. Who don't like underlining.... Does anyone have a manual to this software? (*grin*)

Thank you my dear!!!

Now...can anyone figure out from this how BBCode shortcuts are set up? Or why the template we're using allows keyboard shortcuts for everything except underline? Or why ctrl-U highlights the link to the UCP instead?....

*looks around wildly for Geo*

Use of Geo will cost you £1000000. And you still owe me £2000.

Testing contrl u. Conclusion: It works on Mac.

Not for me it doesn't!

I know it's supposed to *manually underlines* And it works on every other phpBB3 site I've been on. But here, every time I hit ctrl-U, the board highlights User Control Panel instead. (I know it's highlighted it because a little dotted line appears around it, and if you hit Enter, it behaves like you clicked on it). Go figure.

Er...do you take credit cards?

And wait a minute. What's the £2000 for? Cost of dismantling the nuclear arsenal?
