Build: 10-15 0.9.4 branch build on windows and linux. In Composer, in many places, e.g. the menu items (checking spelling, Undo/Redo ...etc) under Edit. Ctrl+K doesn't work on "Checking Spelling" (Ctrl+S which "S" has underline around it will work), Ctrl+Z doesn't work for Undo and Ctrl+U will work for same reason. Note: On Macintosh, the command+K will work for spelling check and command+Z will work for Undo. Seems they are from macintosh command key but not work for windows and linux ctrl key. So, on windows and linux, the ctrl+ key is not match with the underline letter, it's very confuse user, I think we should fix it.
probably a dup of some bug on my list; this keybinding is going away
reporter, please resolve this bug as WORKSFORME if you can no longer reproduce the bug.
It's still in latest trunk build.
Yuying--could you give an update on this bug? What specific items on which builds are wrong? Is only Composer broken in this way or are other applications also broken?
It's not only for Composer, but also on Browser too. Now I kind of understand why it confused me: With some short cut items, e.g. View Page source in Browser or Check Spelling in Composer; there are showing "Page Source Ctrl+U" (there is an underline associated with o", and "Check Spelling Ctrl+K" (underline associated with S". In fact, on windows and linux, the shortcut actually works with the underline letter(s); on Mac, there is no underline with any characters, only Mac command icon showing for shortcut. So, on Mac, with current design, it looks/works good; but for windows and linux, seems there are two options offer for short cut, the underline one works but the Ctrl+<letter> doesn't match with the underline one and doesn't work.
I'm not the correct person to explain this since it's a Windows-ism. The underline is not necessarily the shortcut key with the control-key. The underline character is the accesskey or mnemonic key and is used for navigating all of the menus (ask a Windows-saavy person to demonstrate; I'm a "Mac" person) -->invalid
We're no different from standard windows programs. Check notepad.exe for example. Save _A_s just means you can type "A" while that window is open to select that option. You can't use Ctrl+A to do it.
> Check notepad.exe for example. > Save _A_s just means you can type "A" while that window is open to > select that option. You can't use Ctrl+A to do it. That's right, but there is no "Ctrl+<letter>" showing there; and if there is something "Ctrl+<letter>" show up there like "S_ave Ctrl+S", then will works as that. But in our app., the "Ctrl+<letter>" offers Mac shortcut in Windows and linux.
What does Edit > Cut show for underline in notepad? Does Composer show the same underline?
Edit -> Cut_ show as "Ctrl+X", and it works with both Ctrl+X and Ctrl+t, this is the same as in Composer. My concern is our app. offer some Mac shortcut key which visible in Windows and linux but don't work, e.g.: View Page Source, Check Spelling ...etc.
Well, my experience, of both Mozilla and Notepad, is When Edit menu open, press t (not ctrl+t or ctrl+x) to cut When no menu open, press ctrl+x (not ctrl+t) to cut
Yuying--if there are specific keybindings that are not working, please file specific bugs for each one. Note that the underline character has NOTHING to do with the letter that is on the right side with "Ctrl". In the original comment you said that Control-K does not open the spellchecker in Composer (is that mozilla or netscape build?). If that is still a problem, please file a NEW bug with the details. Also note that there may already be a bug for spellchecking not working on Linux due to a conflict with emacs keybindings (I forget if there is one or not).
