Accidentally switching to international phonetic alphabet by shortcut key (Ctrl+Enter / Cmd+Enter)
Closed, ResolvedPublic


In several MediaWiki projects, when you enter edit mode (non-visual), and you type control+enter (which is in several websites the shortkey for 'save'/'send' - including phabricator), you switch to international phonetic alphabet. A tiny box in the lower right tells you this, but that is easily overlooked.

A different shortkey would be preferable perhaps, it is quite hard to understand the problem once you run into this.

The issue seems to play at least at en.wikivoyage and not at es.wikipedia (I've seen it elsewhere too, but can't reproduce where).

Is this related to ULS?

Is this related to ULS?

Yep - it looks like Control+Enter toggles the ULS input method. This can also be done with Control+M as mentioned in the docs - Control+Enter isn't listed as a shortcut there, though.

i must have accidentially enabled it? (it's not default now?)

the input tools do strange things when I am typing wikitext, especially stuff like "~~~~" and "::" for indenting.

I keep hitting this when trying to submit the search form into a new browser tab, which has the same shortcut.

Verified on beta. Cmd+Enter and Ctrl+Enter are not toggling the input method any more.
