Helpful KB shortcuts
« on: January 08, 2008, 08:38:45 PM »
While you are posting a message in the forums you can do things faster using keyboard shortcuts. [some of these may depend on your browser, these all work in my XP Firefox]

[Ctrl]+[arrow keys]=move cursor by word instead of by letter
[Shift]+[arrow keys]=highlight text (can combine with [Ctrl]
[Ctrl+[A]=select all
[Ctrl]+[C]=copy selected text
[Ctrl]+[V]=paste text from clipboard
[backspace]=Go to previous page(like back button)
[Alt]+[left arrow]=Go to previous page(like back button)
[Alt]+[right arrow]=Forward page(like forward button button)
[Alt]+[Shift]+=bold text (cursor automatically moves between)
[Alt]+[Shift]+=italic text (cursor automatically moves between)
[Alt]+[Shift]+=underlined text (cursor automatically moves between)
[Alt]+[Shift]+[P]= (cursor automatically moves between)
[Alt]+[Shift]+[W]=http://url links
[Alt]+[Shift]+=send message
[Alt]+[Shift]+[L]=
    list of items
[Alt]+[Shift]+[Q]=
Quote
quoted message
[Alt]+[Shift]+[C]=
Code: [Select]
codes here
[Alt]+[Shift]+[T]=bullets for text (*credit to BigJM*)
[Ctrl]+[Z]=undo last action(good if you accidentally deleted text)
[Ctrl]+[Y]=redo last action
[F11]=toggle fullscreen/normal mode
[Ctrl]+[tab]=scroll through opened tabs in browser
There are some others but I can't test them all because something is wrong with my browser

Post other (useful) shortcuts here.

Or a help forum would work just the same.

I can't code the PHP required to make that happen. *Shrugs*
Some that I do use, though, is ctrl-c and ctrl-v. Quick copy and paste, yes? (also, this is pretty much widely known, so don't worry about credit)

Oh, :lol: I forgot about that, I was going to post it though

And Yoshi guy, this is for built-in functions(I am not sure if what you said was built in?)

edit:I called you yoshi guy because I didn't know your username, but it's right :lol:

quite a few of these also work in writing programs such as Word or Notepad.

I find the ones for selecting entire words with the keyboard helpful.
