Tab to Submit
« on: February 08, 2008, 08:21:34 PM »
From the editor box when replying to a post . . . when I hit tab, I'm not taken to the submit button immediately beneath the text editing field but back to the top of the page.  Is there a workaround (or hope for a fix?) for this?  Interestingly enough, here in the new post maker, hitting tab jumps past all the toggle junk and straight to the Post button. I guess I could just start putting all my posts in new threads :)

I want to tab! Alt+S requires un-doing years of cyber conditioning! :)

Anyway, it still requires clicking reply to open the extended reply do-hicky, which I have no need for other than having the option for the shortcut. So it's compounding additional clicks and keystrokes to compensate for the expected action being absent.

Edit:

While we're quoting:

With a Quick-Reply you can use bulletin board code and smileys as you would in a normal post, but much more conveniently.

It's not being as convenient as it ought, the documentation supports my kvetching.

you could always try a greasemonkey extension, there should be a way to do it from there

If everything else fails, use VLC. There should be tutorials out there for the proper configuration.  :Thmbsup:

i guess we should try to fix this, it's something in the reply post form thats messing up the input ordering.
