Opera actions for keybinds

  • Yes these are the currently supported, keyboard accessible actions.

  • Nice one, ruario

  • Thanks for the useful information!

  • Hmm, @ruario, so (for Win) Ctrl+Shift+V is assigned to the action PasteAndGo – that's what you read from the default bindings you posted.

    But in the context menu of textareas, that combo is used as ”Paste as plain text“.

    So you that combo ”considers context“ to decide which action to perform. Why cannot Ctrl+Z do the same and perform Undo in text controls, ReopenLastClosedTab otherwise?

    But that's not my primary concern. I really hate the way Opera defaults to pasting rich text / formatted text. More often than not (almost always) I don't want some obscure formatted text (you never know in which form it will be submitted) to show up in forms and text areas. But I cannot find an action like PastePlain in the list of action verbs you posted – and which you claim is complete. Or isn't it? I'd really like to do a

      "PastePlain": [],
      "Paste": ["Ctrl+Shift+V"],
      "PastePlain": ["Ctrl+V", "Shift+Ins"], …
  • So I copy/pasted the keybindings for Windows into my Preferences file and now non of the shortcut keys work anymore.
    Any reason why this could happen?

  • This is great. I've been able to remap a few command (FocusAddressBar, for example), but I'd really like to override Cut/Copy/Paste/Undo to Alt+X,Alt+C+Alt+V,Alt+Z and those don't seem to do anything (the Preferences file seems to be fine and is not being overwritten or renamed as .bad.

    Any special treatment needed for these accelerators?


  • First of all, thanks for sharing this. I've been waiting for this for ages.

    I'm trying to add
    "OpenWindow": [ "Ctrl+Alt+N" ]
    , but it is now working. "Ctrl+Shift+N" and "Alt+N" are working though. Any ideas? I'm using windows btw.

  • The latest developer builds allow you to customize shortcuts via preferences


  • Thank you for adding this! I missed it so much.

  • I've tried to add this into the Pereferences file

    "NavigateDown": ["Down", "J"],
    "NavigateLeft": ["Left", "H"],
    "NavigateRight": ["Right", "L"],
    "NavigateUp": ["Up", "K"]

    to make a vim-like key-binding, but it did't work. Anyone knows why?

    Plus, I'm interested in that whether it is possible to make a short cut to a line of script, like Opera 12?
