Soon after upgrading to WordPress 4.2 I noticed that the handy keyboard shortcuts I love to use when creating posts in WordPress were no longer working.
After some digging I discovered that in WordPress 4.2 the keyboard shortcuts were actually changed.
Before on a Mac (not sure about Windows systems) you could use the CMD + Number system for doing things like changing paragraph text to a heading, but now you’ll need to use CTRL + Alt + Number.
Some of my favourite ones:
H1 : CTRL + Alt + 1
Insert Image : CTRL + Alt + m
Insert Link: SHIFT + Alt + a
The full set of available shortcuts can be found on the WordPress Codex while Mike Wallagher has put together this great graphic to explain them all. It will take some getting used to but at least I got my beloved shortcuts back.
