Shortcut for strikethrough conflicts with system screenshot shortcut on OSX
Open, LowPublic


@Jdforrester-WMF Since macOS Mojave, Shift-Command-5 is now used for an additional screenshot option, which conflicts with strikethrough. Is it possible to reconfigure?

Google Docs uses Cmd+Shift+X on OSX (as opposed to +5):

Happy to switch to this...

Unfortunately VE uses Cmd+Shift+X for "Change directionality"...

Note that a workaround does exist. While it's not a suggestion per se, it one solution could be to code that into the shortcut indicator.

On macOS, you may have to use fn+shift+cmd+5 instead of shift+cmd+5 given the latter is by default used by the system's screengrab utility.
