Description Puzzlet Chung 2005-05-24 14:55:54 UTC
Both general "Watch" link and "Watch this page" checkbox just under the edit box
have shortcut key alt+w.
Comment 1 Raimond Spekking 2006-05-27 12:47:08 UTC
It would be great if there will be a solution in the near future :)  I think,
alt-w should be kept for the "Watch"-link. alt-v seems to be available and to be
used for the checkbox.
Comment 2 Raimond Spekking 2006-06-05 11:28:42 UTC
Just another duplicate usage, but only for admins a problem: alt-d is used for
the delete-tab and "show changes" at the edit-modus.

Patch for 'w' conflict

This patch simply removes the watch/unwatch tab in edit mode.  This is probably
desirable in any case, and so is normal behavior in non-Monobook-based skins
already: clicking the (un)watch button does nothing if you subsequently save
the submission form you have open, since it's silently overridden by the status
of the checkbox.

Alternative 'w' patch

This is an alternative patch that just removes the accesskey from the
watch/unwatch tab during editing, rather than removing the tab altogether.  So
if you press alt-W while editing, it just checks/unchecks the box.
Comment 5 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2006-08-10 06:39:44 UTC
The 'd' collision was fixed eleven months ago in r10460.  The shortcut for "show
changes" has been 'v' for almost a year.

Correction: it was fixed for *some* languages.	Cs, da, de, el, eu, it, ja, mk,
nn, pms, and sk are all still using 'd'.

Whoops, left out ga.
Comment 8 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2006-10-13 07:13:56 UTC
'w' collision fixed in r16989 (per comment #3).  'd' collision remains.
Comment 9 Brion Vibber 2006-10-13 21:04:36 UTC
Reverted r16989, as it made it more or less impossible to watch/unwatch a page that 
doesn't presently exist without manually mucking about with URLs.
Comment 10 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2006-10-20 02:44:47 UTC
Both collisions fixed in r17118.
