If only the editing would work. If I use backspace it enters in a rectangle symbol; I have to highlight the whole word to type over it. AND if I edit or delete text eg in an invoice it no longer allows me to tab thru screens ie each time I hit tab it goes through the windows that I have open rather than to the next field of the invoice. So frustrating. I have to log out and back in every time just so the tab function starts working again!

Yes me too!  I am trying to type a message in an email but it won't allow me to change a simple word or sentence, it highlights the whole lot so I will lose the original message, & the space bar won't work so now can't space the words in my message!!!

Since the upgrade if we have not been successful in using Internet Explorer, so now have to use Google Chrome.  Not all the short cut keys work anymore. Example: Write Cheque    Ctrl + W, Memorised transaction list, display    Ctrl + T, New.....    Ctrl + N.  These are shortcuts I can no longer use.

Hi Julie and Larissa,

Yes, this was posted primarily for our desktop users, and we have quite a few..

For those experiencing shortcut issues in Hosted please use the correct thread so we can address directly.


Thanks,

Jason

Which is the correct thread then? The post is tagged as 'New Hosted", so it would seem reasonable to post about shortcuts or key usages mentioned in Mirko's post.

I'd love to see a similar list fully mapped for Mac users, as some of the shortcuts don't seem to work for us. Off the top of my head, I know Ctrl + Del doesn't delete a line for me, I have to mouse to the menu. There are others too, but they aren't coming to mind at the moment.

Hi Cathi,

We will look at removing the hosted tag - we just added the tag as most shortcuts are applicable in hosted. The primary tag is 'Accounts'. Sorry for any confusion.

Please feel free to start a new thread re shortcut problems or shortcuts for mac users which will direct community members to a post that better reflects issues they are experiencing or questions they may have re Mac shortcuts for example. 

This was in essence a 'helpful hints' post. Again, sorry for any confusion.


Regards,

Jason

What I'm referring to doesn't relate to shortcuts (though that also drives me crazy now that the browser shortcut commands take precedent in the hosted environment). I'm talking about delete and backspace which was referred to above under Editing. Regardless, I've been using Chrome the last couple of hours which appears to be better but so much wasted time is experienced now with this new version. Seems most functions I use (and I've been using QB for 14 years) seems to have difficulties in some way :(
