Reversing keyboard navigation for Middle-Eastern (right-to-left) support in Content Station 9

Reversing keyboard navigation for Middle-Eastern (right-to-left) support in Content Station 9

Info: This feature requires Content Station version 9.5.0 or higher.

When Content Station is configured for Middle Eastern support — by which text in an article is displayed from right to left — the keyboard navigation is also reversed: pressing the right-arrow key on the keyboard moves the cursor to the left and pressing the left-arrow key moves the cursor to the right.

If you prefer to reverse this movement to the default navigation direction (pressing the right-arrow key moves the cursor to the right and pressing the left-arrow key moves the cursor to the left), the following actions can be added:

Action Keyboard shortcut
Move to the left one character Left arrow
Move to the left one word Cmd/Ctrl+Left arrow
Move to the right one character Right arrow
Move to the right one word Cmd/Ctrl+Right arrow
Select one character to the left Shift+Left arrow
Select one character to the right Shift+Right arrow
Select one word to the left Cmd/Ctrl+Shift+Left arrow
Select one word to the right Cmd/Ctrl+Shift+right arrow

Step 1. On the system on which Content Station is run, open the WWSettings.xml file.

Step 2. In the SCEnt:ContentStation> section, locate the <Shortcuts> section.

Step 3. Add the following keyboard shortcuts:

For Windows:

<Shortcut name="MoveOneCharacterLeft" shortcut="Left" description="Move one character to the left"/>

<Shortcut name="MoveOneCharacterRight" shortcut="Right" description="Move one character to the right">

<Shortcut name="MoveOneWordLeft" shortcut="ctrl+Left" description="Move one word to the left">

<Shortcut name="MoveOneWordRight" shortcut="ctrl+Right" description="Move one word to the right">

<Shortcut name="SelectOneWordLeft" shortcut="shift+ctrl+Left" description="Select one word to the left">

For Mac OS:

<Shortcut name="SelectOneWordLeft" shortcut="shift+cmd+Left" description="Select one word to the left">

<Shortcut name="SelectOneWordRight" shortcut="shift+cmd+Right" description="Select one word to the right">

Step 4. Save the file and (re-)start Content Station.
