So far I have encountered web applications that use these shortcuts to send messages(posts, emails etc) without clicking the submit button:
- ctrlEnter or cmdEnter
- Just Enter
On the other hand these applications include a different shortcut for breaking lines, but still a similar combination of the above.
This inconsistency between commands, can easily lead a human sending a message instead of breaking a line. (yea I am one of them, twice)
So my core questions are:
- Is out there an established pattern for sending and breaking line shortcut?
- How can we boost memorability and establish an error prevention flow on sending messages by accident?
What is your preference, do you have any working examples or research on that topic?
