I noticed that improving integration for the Rich Text editor was one of the GSoC projects, but no one seems to have done that as a project. Is that right, and if so can anyone (i.e. me) start working on improvements for this editor?
Because it looks like some pretty small edits could cause a relatively big improvements in usability, for example adding some of the missing shortcuts.
Yes! Contributions would be welcome!
Okay cool, I'll start playing around.
I did run into this: In KeymapService
Ctrl+Alt+- is mapped to textBulletedList. In the Rich Text Editor this shortcut doesn't work, but it uses
Ctrl+Shift+8 for this. Is also has
Ctrl+Shift+7 to insert an numbered list and
Ctrl+Shift+9 to insert a chceckbox list.
It would be really easy to have both
Ctrl+Shift+8 insert a bulleted list in the RTE , but I think it would be more useful to make both editors have the same shortcuts. Having the shortcuts for the three lists next to each other on
Ctrl+Shift+7/8/9 seem like a good option, but that would mean changing the shortcut for textBulletedList and I don't know if a change like that is desirable. I also thought about adding the other two lists to KeymapService with the shortcuts
Ctrl+Alt+<some_key_close_to_dash>, but the location of the dash-key seems to vary wildly between keyboard layouts.
What would be a good way to go about this?
For reference, here are some rich-text-editor-related issues:
If I have time, I might work on the first one of these!
