Description

I have written a small wiki article for this feature.
Perhaps, this could be seen as a first draft.

Thank you for writing the document! I have added a new page and pasted your work: RedmineKeyboardNavigation

Please feel free to edit pages.

Thank you Go MAEDA for adding the new article.
I didn't saw an option to add a new article on the "User Guide" page.
While watching the new page I've realized the breadcrumbs would have shown me the right way.
... *facepalm*

The wiki page in its current state is missing some things and is misleading in a way:
  • I am not sure if the 'ALT + SHIFT + Key' combination works on all platforms (Win, Mac, *Nix); if it doesn't, we should document the respective modifiers for the other platforms too;
  • edit shortcut is available for documents too;
  • previous / next shortcuts are not available for issues queries only; they are also available for:
    • all paginations;
    • activities;
    • calendars;
    • gantts;
    • repositories/revisions.

I looked into the modifier keys of major web browsers about a year ago.

  • Chrome for Windows: Alt ("Alt + Shift" for "e" and "f")
  • Firefox for Windows: Alt + Shift
  • Microsoft Edge: Alt ("Alt + 7" is not available)
  • Chrome, Firefox and Safari for macOS: Ctrl + Opt
