U4-16 - Native unobtrusive keyboard shortcuts

Created by Matt Brailsford 20 Jun 2012, 10:51:49 Updated by Steve Morgan 15 May 2015, 13:53:12

Relates to: TV-36

We had a very simple jquery plugin framework for having unobtrusive keyboard handlers for any DOM object - no JS required

I just added a request to the Belle UX project for this (I think it is the same idea matt?)...https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups=#!topic/umbraco-ux/wtIzCeUIx-0

Would be nice to have some shortcuts in the backoffice UI...

not sure if this is the same request or not matt? i added something similar to the Belle UX project though...would be useful to have some simple shortcust for adding new items

According to the discussion here https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups=#!topic/umbraco-ux/wtIzCeUIx-0, this has been done for V7 (Belle) so I'd class this as done.

Are there any pre-defined and documented shortcuts used in the Umbraco core for things like Save, Publish, Search, Create New, Preview, and selecting sections and navigating the trees with keyboard only?

I can't see anything in 7.1.0 beta but maybe I'm not looking in the right place?

ctrl + s = save.. user asks "What is the shortcut for save and publish then"?

Sounds like a fair request?
