Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 722359
Backlog: Shortcut keys (alt - up/down and j/k arrow keys, alt - g for copy src to trans)
Last modified: 2011-10-28 03:02:29 EDT
Description of problem:
Keyboard shortcuts should be able to use to speed up the editing.
Keyboard short cut list:
alt-up: Move the focus to previous cell in both editing mode and navigating mode.
alt-down: Move the focus to next cell in both editing mode and navigating mode.
alt-g: copy source to trans in editing mode
j: Move the focus to next cell in navigating mode.
k: Move the focus to previous cell in navigating mode.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
We should also have these shortcuts:
alt-j: Move the focus to next cell in both edit mode and navigate mode.
alt-k: Move the focus to previous cell in both edit mode and navigate mode.
alt-g: copy source to trans in edit mode or navigate mode
Most of these shortcuts have been implemented. Some haven't, but they aren't blockers for Zanata 1.4.
alt-up, alt-down, alt-j and alt-k currently only work in edit mode, not navigate mode.
J and K shortcuts in navigate mode have not been implemented.
(Basically, we don't have navigate mode at all, yet.)
What has been implemented is okay for 1.4.
We shouldn't forget about the navigation-mode shortcuts.
Assigning to Scrum product owner for prioritisation.
Non-availability of shortcuts particularly in the navigation mode is an important feature loss. Moving this back into the queue to be considered for v1.5.
ALT+J = Move to next entry
ALT+K = Move to previous entry
Implemented shorcuts in navigation mode. See https://github.com/zanata/zanata/commit/cba272203d9fe8c6bb09438364623317621414c8
VERIFIED with Zanata version 1.4.2-SNAPSHOT (20111017-1623)
