tab enter

i know mark isn't bugfixing now (and i fully support that!) just wanted to get this out there. in the comment box, when you press tab and then enter, it doesn't submit. on my install of the forum (which doesn't have markdown enabled), this actually works. on here, it does not. i'm not sure that this is at all related to the markdown extension, but it's obviously between this box and the post button, so that's what i've been mentally blaming. any ideas?


  • i swear to a bottle of rye that this used to work ?

    er... okay, so i just did it, and it worked... but now that i'm replying to this thread, it doesn't. edit for clarity: when i posted the thread, tab enter DID work. when replying, tab enter DID NOT. also, editing posts does NOT work

    it never works for me - it focuses on the Text radio button. for replies, that is.
  • Seems like the markup just needs to be re-ordered to put the comment formatting selection before the comment box.

    although, it's really not so awful to have to hit tab-tab-enter... for now anyway.

    in its current state, it's tab-tab-tab-tab-enter to reply tho. :)

    if you have a preferred method of posting comments, just use your account preferences to remove the comment formatting options and tab+enter is your daddy.

  • The reasons why swapping this around wouldn't be a super plan were covered in another thread. /me digs around a bit... Enjoy!
  • dudes this totally works (tab+enter) now?
  • and i have all my formatting options turned on

    huh, on Firefox Mac it's just two tabs. On PC it goes through all the options. I guess I trust the PC version more - particularly since the Mac version I'm using is actually Deer Park.

    I think it's making the assumption that you're supposed to be tabbing in the order the code is laid out in.

    as well as how it's displayed, which is only logical
