Ack! In almost every other application except Confluence, I can use Emacs-style special characters to do basic editing: Control-A, Control-B, Control-E, Control-F, Control-K, etc. I even used them in the web interface as I'm typing this message!
It wouldn't be so bad if Confluence just didn't do anything with those industry-standard special characters (ok, I'm a bit biased), but Confluence uses Control-B to toggle "bold", so I'm constantly cluttering up my Wiki pages with bold characters.
I don't expect you to change things, but I also can't believe I'm the only Emacs user who is frustrated by Confluence. Can you suggest anything?
Yup, I find this annoying. I've always fixed this in Confluence itself, such that on Mac systems only Command works (not Control).
