Alerts for browser shortcut conflicts

Andrew Khashchyn's avatar

Two parts to this effort to give you confidence in the shortcuts you configure:

  1. We collected a database of default browser shortcuts to help you make figure out shortcuts to attach to your commands that won't conflict with browser shortcuts your users might rely on.
  2. When you specify a shortcut that conflicts with a browser default in the Editor, we'll show an alert with info on the conflict. You can always choose to override the browser default (CommandBar shortcuts will always override), but just make sure your users don't rely on shortcuts you override! For example, don't override command+f ๐Ÿ˜Š

How can I turn this on? ๐Ÿ› 

This is the default setting (nothing to do here).

If you want to check the status of a command shortcut, just click into that command in the Editor and see if there is a warning on your shortcut.
