Here is the current list of shortcuts we are working to implement in the new editor.
Let's use this space to capture suggestions.
Note: Shift-tab isn't yet implemented, but it's planned for the very near future.
Attached is a text version.
I don't know if it's just me (because I'm still an amateur subtitler) but It would be really useful if I could snip a subtitle from the position of the caret to the end of the subtitle, and put it into a new/next subtitle.
So a single key combination replacing the following
0. Position caret at desired position
When is this going to be implemented? I'm so tired of having to moved to mouse, and this is brilliant.
Moreover, could you add "push all subtitles below this line down one line" (maybe Ctrl+Shift+Enter) and "push all subtitles above this line up one line" (Ctrl + Shift + Backspace)? Sometimes when I miss a line, like when you don't pay attention in a quiz, you mess up all the A, B , C , D one line below.
I've subtitled about 4 videos on amara. I took a long time to subtitle first video.
But it wasn't difficult to understand how to subtitle a video using great UI of amara.
But I'd like to suggest improvements: (to make subtitling a mouse-free process)
#1. Most needed: a keyboard shortcut to make a new subtitle with all the text after the cursor (to be placed in the new subtitle)
You could use any shortcut, say Ctrl+Enter. Like Shift+Enter saves a lot of time.
But I need to do a lot of cut & paste to acheive this Ctrl+Enter functioning that I want to achieve most of the time.
I'd say introduce this shortcut & I'd not ask for the below shortcuts. Just kidding!
#2. Navigating between the different subtitles: Like pgup (for previous i.e. upper subtitle on the page) & pgdn keys or any keys you prefer. But one request if a person presses pgup, then the cursor should be at the last of the subtitle. & if a person presses pgdn key then the cursor should at the start of the subtitle.
#3. Like we get to see total number of characters in each subtitle line. It would be helpful if it could also tell the cursor (at current position) has completed "this many" characters.
#4. A keyboard shortcut to merge the current subtitle with the previous subtitle.
#5. A keyboard shortcut to merge the current subtitle with the next subtitle. (I think less use as of now but some person may find it useful)
#6. You can see this photo that the information on the right hand side (that shows the number of subtitle lines,etc) is placed a little bit below than it should be.
So to see this information, I've to scroll up everytime.
I've made a form here, you can also fill that.
I have a problem the "Insert subs" (Alt+i) shortcuts.
I use the US International keyboard layout for typing foreign languages,
so I use AltGr (right alt) to type diacritics, which makes conflicts with i-accute (Alt+i too).
Could you make the commands customizable, per-shortcut?
Or even change Alt+i to other key binding, let's say Ctrl+Enter?
