Enabling/Disabling Keyboard Modifiers

In order to submit or save most actions in a discussion on Kialo, by default, users press the ‘Enter’ key on a non-touch screen device. If desired, you can change this so the ‘Shift’, ‘CTRL’ or ‘⌘ CMD’ key needs to be held while ‘Enter’ is pressed to submit or save your action.

To adjust keyboard modifiers:

  1. Open your User Settings
  2. Navigate to the General Settings section. 
  3. Check/uncheck the Use Shift-Enter instead of Enter to send/save option. 
  4. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Save

To clarify: If this option is checked, you will need to use modifier keys (such as ‘Shift’) as well as ‘Enter’ to submit or save. If the option is not checked, pressing only ‘Enter’ will submit or save in most places on Kialo.
