Hello experts,

I am looking for documentation or a feedback related to keyboard shortcuts that can help me to speed up in Expert Echanges in particular when I write a question.
I saw that for most of the actions such as embed, bold, code indent, attache file, I am required to use the mouse. Is there a way to directly use the keyboard?
Thank you in advance for your help.

All of the formatting options can be done via "shortcode" which is explained in this support article:
http://support.experts-exchange.com/customer/portal/articles/2421387

Basically you just have to wrap the text in a specific string. For example:

Bold Text:
 [b]text here[/b]

Open in new window


Italic Text:
[i]text here[/i]

Open in new window


Underline Text:
[u]text here[/u]

Open in new window

Thank you very much for this update why formating bar is not accessable through tab keyboard?

Hi,

I noticed you ask a lot of questions in Excel and/or VBA.  What toolbar item are you using a lot that you have to use the mouse for?  What is an example of how you imagine a shortcut would work when asking a question?

Hello Kyle,

Thank you for your comment. I would like to have exactly the same behavior when I compose an e-mail from gmail.
I hit on TAB key and I have access directly to the tool bar. We can take as a reference this and when I hit TAB key to have at least  access to the first button of tool bar and to return to the other button I can hit SHIFT TAB.

Thank you again for your help.
