[Migrated] Allow typing shortcuts in the Edit Summary box, similar to "Paste more" in the Edit box
Open, Needs TriagePublic


The "→" right arrow is pretty hard to input; if there's already one in the summary, then cut and paste will work, though even that's a little tedious, especially if the clipboard is already loaded with a text selection. Other boilerplate stuff, such as ", also rm 'Dr.' per WP:CREDENTIAL" could be ready to go when needed. Perhaps Ctrl+number-key could be used, as in the Edit box. If the "Paste more" from the Edit box could be used for the Edit Summary box as well, I would be very happy with that. @Chris_the_speller 19:12, 7 September 2012 (UTC)

I have implemented hotkey insertion (I hadn't seen this request, but it seems like a pretty obvious enhancement). In my current project I often have to type some boilerplate text. I've added a feature that lets you define text to insert using 11 fixed hotkeys (tab, and ctrl/numpad/0-9). The selections save with prefs. I have a patch file against the current version - does someone on the core team want a look at it?
