VisualEditor: Add CTRL+Y as a second shortcut for redo
Closed, ResolvedPublic


An editor on en.wp has requested that Ctrl+Y should initiate the redo action. Presently the shortcut is ctrl+shift+z.

In my experience both shortcuts are used in about 50% of applications (Xubuntu Linux) so it would be ideal if both shortcuts could be used.

Ctrl+Y is the default undo shortcut in Firefox. It's very confusing that it doesn't work in VE using Firefox.
