Even though Apple reinvented personal computing with the graphic user interface and mouse*, we all still use keyboard shortcuts to save time when creating content online. In fact, I’m writing this on a Mac, using TinyMCE in WordPress, and yes, I’m using a shortcut to make this bold.
Today I’d like to let you in on a little secret. TinyMCE has a range of keyboard shortcuts built in, available to anyone using the product. Importantly, these include accessibility (a11y) shortcuts too!
Since this might be TinyMCE’s best-kept secret, we created a one-page, printable infographic to keep by your desk. We hope you find it useful.
Authors, download a printable version of TinyMCE’s shortcuts here. Developers, please see our technical docs for more info. Product Managers, we are here to help you build a great content creation experience: contact us via the pricing page.
Update: our support team created a walkthrough explaining how to make your own custom shortcuts. It’s pretty neat, check it out.
* The GUI wasn’t invented by Apple … but by a team at Xerox PARC in the early 1970’s. Sorry fanbois.
