Here is a brilliant idea: put the easiest to accidentally press keyboard shortcuts with the most “dangerous” commands. It appears as though the developers at Gmail have done exactly this. A few days ago, I sent my first Gmail message! (Well I technically sent only one sentence due to someones temporary wave of brilliance) but that is just a technicality. Truth be told, it doesn’t take much skill to send a message, as I learned firsthand. One sentence into a (thankfully) unimportant email, my message magically sent itself off. BAM just like that. You get the point. Well, to my surprise, it turns out that <Tab> then <Enter> sends the message. Just brilliant! Like most people who have the misfortune to use Gmail, I indent my paragraphs. I guess I mistakenly hit the enter key after indenting my first paragraph. A simple mistake, but apparently a big one. I am sure I am not the first, or last person to do this. Next time I use Gmail, I will be sure to watch out for that. Either way, this shortcut has to be the worst idea ever. I wonder if the developers at WordPress used such a dumb shortcut… (presses <Tab> then <Enter> multiple times). Nope! My faith in WordPress is not lost! It is still mind boggling to imagine who could ever have thought this shortcut was “intuitive”. Comments? Leave em’ below.
