Keyboard Shortcuts for Google Wave
For those using Google Wave, here is a list of keyboard shortcuts my friend Wayne (works for Google) created on his wave.
Keyboard Shortcut Cheat Sheet:
This is a quick guide to the current keyboard shortcuts supported by Wave. If you have questions, ask them below, as they are answered and the information is folded into the cheat sheet, they will be deleted. Currently the best way to print this is to copy and paste it into an app that will print. We’ll let you know when Print support is complete!
NOTE: This wave is currently shared by all Wave users and we don’t have read-onliness implemented yet, so please don’t edit this. We DO have playback, so we’ll find you :)
Wave Navigation Up/Down arrows use to navigate messages. Home/End focus first/last message Space go to next unread message. Left/Right arrows to switch focus between digest panel and wave panel. Page Up/Down go to the next page in the panel [does not currently work, known bug] Ctrl-Space mark all messages read (focus must be on wave panel though) [it has been noted that this is a fairly common keyboard shortcut, so this may change]
Messages Enter replies to message: the new message will appear just below the selected message (it will be the same indentation level if it is the first reply, but indented more if a non-first reply). Shift-Enter replies to message at the end of thread: the new message will appear at the same indentation level, and at the BOTTOM most position. highlight text + Enter inline reply: the new message will appear indented and INSIDE the current message. Ctrl-R same as enter Ctrl-E edit message Ctrl-Enter (while editing) insert inline reply at caret
Text Editing Shift-Enter Done Ctrl-B toggles bold attributes for selected text Ctrl-I toggles italicise attributes for selected text Ctrl-G Color Ctrl-K Insert/remove links Tab indent Shift-Tab unindent (/dedent/outdent) Ctrl-1…Ctrl-4 Heading 1…Heading 4 Ctrl-5 Bulleted list Ctrl-6 Clear heading/list Ctrl-7 LTR + Left align Ctrl+8 RTL + Right align Ctrl-Enter Insert an inline reply at your current cursor
Copy/Paste Ctrl-C copy the selected text. Ctrl-X cut the selected text. Ctrl-V paste the text from the text buffer.
Structural Formatting Ctrl- Make the current line a heading, where n = 1..4 for different sized headings. Ctrl-5 Bullets Ctrl-6 Normal (removes heading/bullet style, but not bold/italic etc. current visual glitch in some browsers where text stays big – but this is not persistent.) Ctrl-7 LTR + Left align Ctrl+8 RTL + Right align
Slide Show Space / Right Next Slide Shift-Space/ Left Previous Slide Down / Page Down Next set of thumbnails Up / Page Up Previous set of thumbnails Home First Slide End Last Slide Escape Close Slide Show
