Chromebook keyboard shortcuts to move bullets?
On my Windows PC, I can use Alt+Shift+UpArrow and Alt+Shift+DownArrow to move bullets in my list. On Chromebook, however, those shortcuts just select text. As far as I can tell, ChromeOS doesn't use these shortcuts for anything else, and the Alt+Shift combination works fine with other shortcuts. Is anyone aware of a way to get these shortcuts to work, or of alternate keyboard shortcuts for this purpose in ChromeOS? Thanks in advance!
Hi Joachim and Kaj,
There may be a couple of shortcuts that don't work for a few folk in ChromeOS... but in general the same shortcuts that work on Windows should work for you...
If you hit Ctrl+? this should bring up a list of keyboard shortcuts (or alternatively you could activate the keyboard shortcut helper in Settings). Would you mind making a list of all the keyboard shortcuts that don't work on Chrome OS, and I will see about bringing this to the team's attention so that we can kill multiple birds with one stone :-)
Another thing that does not work on Chromebooks, which may be related, is that I cannot explode tags with Alt-Click. Nothing happens when I try.
I ran across this page from 2014 which describes this issue (and specifically mentions Workflowy as one of the apps that has issues as a result of how Chromebooks handle Alt+).
I found other references to issues with Chromebooks here:
I'm not sure why Chromebooks are unique in this regard, but it sure would be great to be able to remap these in Workflowy.
Alt-Shift-9: keycode down=57, up=57, Shift=true, Ctrl=false, Alt=true, Meta=false
Alt-Shift-0: keycode down=48, up=48, Shift=true, Ctrl=false, Alt=true, Meta=false
Alt-Shift-[: keycode down=219, up=219, Shift=true, Ctrl=false, Alt=true, Meta=false
Alt-Shift-]: keycode down=221, up=221, Shift=true, Ctrl=false, Alt=true, Meta=false
