      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.

          These keyboard shortcuts are non-standard and cause unexpected behavior most commonly of which is losing work and time. Since the likely reason for adding these shortcuts was to save time it should be obvious that there is a disconnect. I think the shortcuts need to be disable-able and moreover should be re-thought altogether.

          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!
