Yes, I know there's a script for that. But I think it's useful enough to be inserted into the live chat for everyone.

The following keyboard shortcuts are incredibly useful:

  • CTRLUp and CTRLDown - For replying to messages (each Ctrl+Arrow should change the :[message ID] in the chat input.
  • CTRLSpace - For retrying a failed message, or ESC to cancel it. There should also be a keyboard shortcut to edit a failed message as per the newest functionality (Maybe the Down key?)

Using a chat with only the keyboard is very useful, it will be especially appreciated on chats with a more technical nature.

    also, if "fixed font" button is pressed, it would be cool to have the textarea having a font-family:monospace; too – user170512 Oct 31 '14 at 22:06

    I bet the super-cool author of that script would even totally help do the integration. – Tim Stone Oct 31 '14 at 23:40
  • Ctrl + arrow is usually preset on OS X. Rather use Alt + arrow. (Comment-crosspost from duplicate to here) – bwoebi Jul 3 '15 at 16:59
