Add link dialog should capture enter

+6
−0

I think we have a UI problem with the "add link" dialog box in the editor: it doesn't capture enter keystrokes which then fall through to the submit button.

I'm merrily typing a post when I realize that it would be improve by linking a phrase. So, I copy the link, highlight the text, click the Link button in the GUI, and the dialog box comes up

So far all is well.

I hot key for paste and then hit [enter].

At which point my partially complete post is submitted.

Yeah, same thing happened to me here. Dani‭ 4 months ago

Sounds like a network-wide problem and arguably it is a bug. Might want to post this on https://meta.codidact.com/ so that it gets attention from the right people. Lundin‭ 3 months ago

@Lundin the team monitors all the metas for bug reports, so it's fine to ask here. (When problems aren't clear or there could be workarounds, the wider audience of main Meta can help, but here the problem seems pretty clear.) Monica Cellio‭ 3 months ago

@Monica Cellio‭ Ok. Seems a bit cumbersome to monitor n number of metas instead of one, though? Lundin‭ 3 months ago

This was a tricky one to diagnose, but it's fixed now. Thanks for the report.
