What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 131 Stack Exchange communities.

As a room owner on chat, you can move messages out of the room. To do this, we can click on the Room link in the sidebar and select Move Messages. This results in the following instructions:

Now on a Mac, Shift-click works fine for selecting an entire set of consecutive messages. However, Ctrl-click doesn't work as OS X interprets it as a right click.

Could this Ctrl-Click functionality also be tied to -click (Command-click) for OS X users?

This really is a problem, and it needs to be fixed already. –  someDoge Oct 2 '13 at 21:47
    
Isn't this fixable by just using alt or cmd on OS X? –  bwoebi Nov 4 '13 at 20:42

This is a bug with OSX, not Stack Exchange :P –  ɥʇǝS Apr 23 at 20:03
    
@ɥʇǝS Nope, it's not a bug, MacOS just works differently from Windows. ctrl / cmd is accounted for in lots of other places in SE's Javascript, but not here for some reason. –  fredley May 24 at 23:11
    
@fredley My point was Apple shouldn't be redefining everything ;) –  ɥʇǝS May 24 at 23:15
    
@ɥʇǝS It's been that way for decades! –  fredley May 24 at 23:16
