Why are shortcuts broken? They were helpfull...

Since they still work in Firefox, it's probably something Chrome did, not us, and the most helpful one (shift+drag to maintain proportion) actually does work everywhere. Maybe we can further investigate along with just generally making the image editor not suck in 3.6, but for 3.5, I think this is as far as we can go. Plus, five fewer strings to translate :)

When one shortcut works well - why removing it from Help text? Shortcuts were really handy sometimes and I do not like removing the whole Help text. It would be better to let it be as it is and try to repair in 3.6. Also when it was broken by latest Chrome versions, maybe it can be fixed in the future. But removing only Help text is not a good idea when functionality is still in core.

So, reopen this ticket with "Future Release"?

No, do not reopen - this ticket is closed on a milestone already. The help text was complete insanity where it was, sliding down and pushing inputs almost off the screen like that - we can do better. This is a power user feature, and is fine without help text that was almost not discoverable in the first place. Leaving the help text there is a promise that it works, and since we can't promise that at this moment, it's better to remove it.

Let's please just allow 3.5 to get out the door and then we can come back to making this whole image editing thing better as a whole. Monkey patching something that sucks is not a good use of time.
