The alt-shift-A keyboard shortcut behaving weirdly (1 post)

    Hello,

    This is another of my favorite kind of posts, the "I saw something wrong but I don't know if I'm the only person affected by this".

    When it happens : not in the Visual Editor, in HTML editing mode.

    When I select a block of text and hit my good old keyboard shortcut to create an hyperlink, Alt - Shift - A, instead of popping up the Javascript hyperlink creating window, it simply positions the "cursor" on the "link" button (as if I clicked around it, or as if I had been using the tab-tab-tab-tab-tab-taaaaaaaabbbbbb keyboard navigation, you see the idea ?)

    The solution is simple : hit Space, and the menu pops up, af if I had clicked it.

    But other users may be taken aback or miss the trick to hit Space.

    I don't know if I'm the only person having this problem, but at least, I've come to report it :)

    Best Regards,
    Sabinou
