Is it possible to modify or disable keyboard shortcuts?

I've got a co-worker who accidentally pushes "c" all the time which accidentally archives things that should still be active. Is there a way for a user to disable keyboard shortcuts?

What is just *brutal* about the keyboard shortcuts is when you mis-click a text entry and start typing, they start applying. So I go to edit a title or description, and suddenly I do 5 unexpected things to the card because I didn't actually get the input to focus.

I really want a way to disable these. ESPECIALLY ARCHIVE! Our team has lost a ton of time to `c`. Why is that so easy to do!

you should also really add a way to delete an answer when you meant to reply instead :/

Hey Nathan,

Right now there's not an option to disable keyboard shortcuts, but I'll pass this feedback along to the team!

Okay, thanks for the info!

Please add this feature, shortcuts are annoying as hell

Necro on this topic, because it has been 2 years without any update. Disabling / modifying keyboard shortcuts is still needed. Any update on progress to this end?

Can I add my vote as well? I've had several frustrating episodes of trying to revert whatever my intercepted typing had done.


What would mitigate it somewhat would be an undo feature. If I could just hit that a few times within a short grace period, I wouldn't mind the errant commands as much.

It's so frustrating to miss a text input and have 100 things change on a card.  Or to not realize your browser is focused and accidentally move a card without noticing.


We use the custom fields power up with a lot of text inputs and it happens at least weekly on our team.


An option to disable these would be invaluable

3 years on, this is still needed.

We especially see an issue with this on large boards that have slow, unresponsive UIs. Cards seem to be moved or archived and users get very confused at what happened. We've seen this occur multiple times with different users in just the last week.

Keyboard shortcuts on Trello are the bane of my existence. Please, PLEASE consider an option to turn them off.

Agree completely with the above complaints. The UI is slow to react when clicking in a text box (in our case Custom Fields are the main issue) and anything typed before the textfield is accepting input is taken as a shortcut.

I would remove every single shortcut in a second (except 'f' for filter) so there is almost no upside and a huge downside. Archiving with a 'c' is extremely dangerous.
