Would be awesome to "insert" code with a keyboard return

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Confluence Wiki Markup

I would like to be able to confirm the "confluence" or "markdown" editor window using the keyboard instead of having to "choose" "insert". It would be awesome if Confluence could be used completely using a keyboard only.

Hi Johan,

Can you not just press Tab to get to the Insert button and press Enter?

Johan,

For the sake of others reading your question, Confluence does support various keyboard shortcuts. Not sure they provide the ones you need, but check this out for the listing:

Thanks @Tom Crespi for the quick reply. Alas, that's not what I was looking for since the keyboard command I need would be the one to confirm the dialog window. The Escape key closes the window, but this also cancels submitting the changes in the input field. Having to switch from keyboard to mouse click breaks my "input flow".

That's exactly what I was looking for. Thank you @Stephen Deutsch.

Can you please change your comment into an "answer", so I can mark it as "answer" to my question?

Converted to answer. Thanks smile
