A keyboard shortcut for link adaptation
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Migrated from:


Adding links is a common action while editing a wiki page, so it should be easily accessible using a keyboard shortcut.

This must, nevertheless, be minimal: only make more easily accessible what is already available in the CX screen and not create significant new functionality that is better handled by the VisualEditor.


As an editor, I can use the keyboard to add a link while I'm typing the translation, so that I don't have to reach for the mouse.

Acceptance Criteria

  • It's possible to trigger link adaptation by selecting a text using the keyboard ( / T68956 ).
  • It's possible to add a link that is being suggested in the sidebar using the keyboard and without clicking the card. The shortcut must be the same as in the VisualEditor: Ctrl-K on Windows and Linux, ⌘+K on a Mac.
