RFE: Keyboard shortcut to remove copied source text
Last modified: 2015-08-06 01:55:11 EDT
Description of problem:
RFE from Aiko (firstname.lastname@example.org):
"When translating, we firstly press Alt ＋ G to copy source text.
After finishing translating source to target, you always have to delete the copied source manually and this speed is very slow. If there were a function or command available to delete the remaining source text to the end of the sentence (or the end of the segment) at one time, that will save lots of time."
How about Ctrl-Shift-End followed by the Delete key? This should work in almost anything - browsers, text editors, etc.
Actually, I usually use Shift-PgDn, Delete, since it's a bit easier to press. If there's more than one page, you can just hold down PgDn for a bit longer.
Ctrl-Shift-End will select from cursor to end of buffer, then Delete deletes the selection.
Likewise Shift-PgDn will select from cursor to end of page, and it adds another page if you press PgDn again.
I'm using GNOME 2, but most environments should offer similar editing shortcuts, and many others.
Does Sean's suggesting work for you?
Yes, Sean's suggestion works well.
As the functionality is provided by browser, not Zanata itself. I hereby close this bug as NOTABUG. Feel free to reopen this bug if you have further concern.
