Hi all,

We recently upgraded to SonarQube 6.4, and for the most part it looks great, and nice UI improvement on 6.3. Well done!

However one thing that I have noticed is that the keyboard shortcuts have changed in one (for me) critical area: When you are in an issues list you can navigate the list using the keyboard, but when navigating the list you can only select issues by using the mouse on the checkbox. My old workflow used this ability "reasonably often", or at least often enough that I noticed this omission very quickly :-) The space bar now moves the page one screen forward instead of selecting the current item.

Any chance that this can be fixed, or that a different key can be chosen to select the current item? Or, if there is already a key to select the current item, can it be added to the keyboard shortcut help?

Cheers,
Paul

@Greg and @Stas: any particular reason why this shortcut was removed?

Hi Fabrice,

Has there been any update on this internally? This is still a pain point, albeit minor, for me :-)

Cheers,
Paul

Hello,

I created the following Jira ticket regarding this issue : https://jira.sonarsource.com/browse/SONAR-9513
The feature was probably removed by mistake when upgrading the UI in 6.4.

Best regards,
