Zotero 7: Missing keyboard shortcuts for text formatting in notes and annotations

edited August 23, 2023
I was expecting to get similar shortcuts as in Word for simple text formatting:
- Ctrl+B for bold
- Ctrl+I for italic
- Ctrl+U for underline
- Ctrl+= for subscript
- Ctrl+Shift++ for superscript
The first 3 are already working in notes, but not the last 2.
Nothing works in annotations.

At the moment, when writing in annotations, the shortcut Ctrl++/- triggers the zoom in the PDF viewer. I am not sure if this is intended.

It would be nice also to get a shortcut for highlighting text in notes.

Another small thing: hovering over the text formatting icons in the note shows a popup explanation text, but not in the annotations. I am not sure if they are needed there.
  • For Arabic text:
    Ctrl+b for bold not working ( In both notes and annotations. I disabled all plug-ins but the same problem persists.. Need to choose bold from menu)
    Ctrl+i (Works in notes but not in annotations)

    Ctrl +shift or alt+shift does not work to change text direction from right to left (rtl)

    Hope this can be fixed
  • I have the same problem as agam2222. Shortcut keys for changing text direction doesn't work properly.
  • Based on mjthoraval's advice, at least, the last 2 shortcut key may be added in notes. It will be very helpful for us.
