Version 9.0.11 - improved keyboard navigation and shortcuts

In 2016, work has been ongoing to review the existing support for keyboard navigation and shortcuts. A unified support for keyboard navigation and shortcuts that follows web standards has been implemented for both regular flexiteWEB and Smooth Forms.

To save time when entering information in a form there is a set of shortcuts. Using these, the user can jump between different parts of the forms and dialog boxes without having to switch between the keyboard and mouse.

 

The principle of shortcuts in flexiteWEB is to follow the practice in terms of navigation and selection in forms. Many of the shortcuts follow the browser's built-in shortcuts and can be used in combination with specific shortcuts in flexiteWEB. Below is a cheat sheet so you can get started right away!
