Keyboard Controls

Lists

For most lists in Cascadin, we’ve enabled keyboard controls to better navigate the lists for keyboard users.

Grips, when focused, will listen for the following key commands:

  • Down Arrow – Moves the item down a row.
  • Alt + Shift + Up Arrow – Moves the item to the top of the list.
  • Alt + Shift + Down Arrow – Moves the item to the bottom of the list.

Grips and other focusable buttons in our lists will listen for the following key commands:

  • Shift + Up Arrow – Moves the keyboard focus up (row) to the next focusable object in the list.
  • Shift + Down Arrow – Moves the keyboard focus down (row) to the next focusable object in the list.
  • Control + Up Arrow (Windows) or Command + Down Arrow (Mac) – Moves the keyboard focus up (row) to the next focusable object in the list, and when applicable, it will skip any child rows.
  • Control + Down Arrow (Windows) or Command + Down Arrow (Mac) – Moves the keyboard focus down (row) to the next focusable object in the list, and when applicable, it will skip any child rows.

WYSIWYG Editor

All instances of the WYSIWYG (What You See Is You Get) editor will listen for the following commands:

  • Alt + F10 (Windows) or Fn + Alt + F10 (Mac) – Moves the keyboard focus to the toolbar.
  • Shift + Tab (Windows) or Alt + Shift + Tab (Mac, Safari) – Moves the keyboard focus to the last button focused in the toolbar.

Toolbar

The toolbar follows WCAG guidelines for keyboard navigation used with a rich-text editor.

  • Esc – If the focused button is not in a submenu, the keyboard focus is moved back to the editor. If the focused button is in a submenu, the submenu will close and the parent button of the submenu will be focused.
  • Left Arrow – Moves the keyboard focus from the current button to the button on its left. If it is the first button in the toolbar, it will focus the last button in the toolbar.
  • Right Arrow – Moves the keyboard focus from the current button to the button on its right. If it is the last button in the toolbar, it will focus the first button in the toolbar.
  • Down Arrow – If the focused button has a submenu, the submenu will open and the first button will be focused.
  • Up Arrow – If the focused button is in a submenu, the submenu will close and the parent button of the submenu will be focused.
  • Enter – Presses the focused button and returns the focus to the editor.
  • Space – Presses the focused button and returns the focus to the editor.
