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

Description

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.

Severity: enhancement

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

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
