      Description

      I work on a mac and my browser supports emacs key bindings for editing in a browser's text box, but JIRA overrides these with keyboard shortcuts. For example I pree Ctrl-a to go to the beginning of the line in a text box and JIRA takes me to a new page to add an attachment to the issue.

      This is very annoying. I do not use JIRA keyboard shortcuts and I have no interest in using them, and yet they cripple my standard text editing style.

            Hi Bernd,

            When will this be fixed in confluence ?

            You've commented in the JIRA project, are you after CONF-21908 or CONF-7256?

            Cheers,
            Peter

            As mentioned earlier, I find these annoying. I have no interest in using the shortcuts and often find that I have accidentally performed some operation because I started typing when I wasn't focused in an input field (or equivalent). Being able to turn them off would be fantastic. Thanks!

            This issue is marked resolved, but I don't see any explanation of how to turn off shortcuts. They're very dangerous if you have admin rights and type fast.

            I did eventually find that. You can also press Shift+? to bring up the list of keyboard shortcuts and click the disable link at the bottom.
