#43773 new defect (bug)

TinyMCE: some keyboard shortcuts are not displayed in the tooltips

In [38897] some TinyMCE keyboard shortcuts were made more discoverable by adding them to the buttons tooltips. However, some of them aren't displayed correctly.

When the user language is set to English:

  • Bulleted list: no shortcut displayed
  • Numbered list: OK
  • Insert/edit link: no shortcut displayed


When the user language is set to any other language:

  • none of them works


Seems to me the Insert/edit link case is simpler, while the lists are a bit more tricky because they are actually a TinyMCE plugin.

43773.diff works but is, in a way, a hack. To my understanding, ideally the tooltip property should be added in the lists buttons object in the lists plugin, see src/wp-includes/js/tinymce/plugins/lists/plugin.js so a fix upstream would probably be the best option. /Cc @azaozz @iseulde

  • Keywords dev-feedback added

I was able to reproduce the issue described and 43773.diff does fix the problem.

@azaozz or @iseulde, do you have any thoughts on this for 4.9.6?
