Need to disable alt-3 shortcut

The keyboard shortcut '3' brings up the cumulative flow diagram, and that works fine. Bt when I press 'ALT-3' to siwtch to another browser tab, that *also* brings up that diagram. In other words, when I press 'ALT-3', Jira treats it like I also just pressed '3', which is not what I want.

Hi @Greg Travis 

Here is the Jira Cloud defect for that symptom, which Atlassian closed as "won't fix":

The Jira Server/Data Center version of that defect is still open:

Kind regards,

Thanks! Voted on both.

Hi @Greg Travis

You need to disable the entire Keyboard shortcut


I don't want to disable shortcuts, I really like them! I'm fine with '3' being the shortcut, but 'alt-3', which isn't a shortcut, shouldn't invoke the same function as '3'.

In short, Atlassian has to disable the Alt key recognition!!

Until that we can't change it


I agree! I would like to file a bug, but I can't find a place to do that; the support page just sent me here.
