Make WDQS auto-completion keyboard shortcut configurable
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

The CTRL-SPACE shortcut in Wikidata Query UI seems to be hardcoded [1] and it's a key combination that's not particularly friendly to Mac OS or Chromebook users. Please consider making it configurable, I'd love to be able to use query auto-completion without having to change my other OS-level keyboard shortcuts.

Smalyshev updated the task description. (Show Details)

See also T203320: Ctrl/Control-Space is overridden by keyboard layout changing shortcut on macOS. (I’m not sure if the two tasks should be merged or kept separate, but they’re definitely related.)
