After our recent upgrade to JIRA 4.1, I noticed a new feature: keyboard shortcuts! e.g press ‘C’ and a Create Issue dialog comes up, designed to make creating issues easy!
Actually, it just made me mad. Combined with the Subversion plugin, I end up doing a lot of copy and pasting of issue keys from JIRA into my SVN commit message. So hitting Command+C brings up the Create Issue dialog and focuses it. And don’t tap Space, you’ll be taken to a whole new window.
After a cry for help on Twitter, Matt Jones kindly made a screencast on how to disable them:
I’ve summarised the steps:
Go to the Administration tab > System > Plugins > Keyboard Shortcuts Plugin. You will then see the list of shortcuts and can disable them.
