Alternative ways to display the context menu

There are security settings on browsers to block scripts from disabling the default context menu. In those cases, users will have no way to display our custom menu, as the only option we have for now is the right-click (as expected, btw).

We should provide alternative ways to display the menu. Some proposals are:

  • [Left Click] + [Keyboard Accelerator] : we could use CTRL on Windows and META on Mac. The problem is that IE uses CTRL+Click to select the paragraph. I'm not sure we have people using that our there, but we would be removing that feature from the browser. ALT instead is used to activate the application menu on Windows, so we may have conflict.
  • CTRL + [Space] : we can also make it configurable in the fckconfig.js file. It means that a "ContextMenu" command should also be created.

In V3, it's already possible to open the context menu with SHIFT+F10. This is the default key combination on Windows for that.

The CTRL+CLICK option is still to be well thought, as there may be conflicts with other browser and OS functions (as explained in the ticket).

What about menu button? It would be very simple. For SCAYT even richCombo with all suggestions.

This issue expired. At some point we made it possible to open context menu using ctrl+shift+f10.
