Description

Currently it is possible to start editing a wiki page by using the "e" accesskey. It would be great if it was possible to save the page by using the "s" access key (or have it user settable). Right now the user has to use the mouse to do that (or tab a lot). I believe this will enhance productivity for those who edit a lot of pages in the wiki.

I'd like to propose a wontfix for this one, but as I'm not using any access keys, I can't really comment on the usability of this feature.

Replying to cboos:

In that case the other accesskeys currently implemented should be removed for consistency?

For me and many other users, accesskeys are a critical feature. It increases accessibility for users that have difficulties using the mouse. For me, as a developer, they increase productivity as I typically don't have to leave the keyboard for quick edits. Most other wikis have implemented them by now.

Resolution: wontfix
Status: newclosed

In the original feature ticket #1752, the reasons why an access key for submit or cancel will not be added are noted. Specifically, in a comment, cmlenz writes:

I agree with Shun-ichi Goto that adding access keys for operations such as “Submit” or “Cancel” might be dangerous. You accidentially hit the key (which you aren't aware of due to the bad discoverability of access keys in current user agents), and the current form is submitted or cancelled.

Closing as wontfix.
