It's very time-consuming typing things like <kbd>Ctrl</kbd>+<kbd>Alt</kbd>+<kbd>T</kbd> to produce Ctrl+Alt+T. You have to switch the keyboard mode what feels like dozens of times.

It would be nice if there was a button that popped up a modal question, much like the hyperlink button does, to ask what the text on the keycap was, which would then insert the full <kbd>Text entered</kbd> sequence with the text-entry cursor positioned just after it.

Sadly, there is no workaround for this on the iOS app.

However, if you need to do this more easily on the web interface, you can use the userscript <kbd> markup shortcuts by Brock Adams to get the same functionality.

It adds a KBD button to the toolbar of your editor. Alternatively, you can use Alt + K.

  • Is there a way to get that working inside the iOS app?

  • @Olathe sorry, I didn't realize that you were using the iOS app. AFAIK, there isn't any easier way to add KBD tags on the mobile app, besides creating a custom keyboard (if that is even possible) Oct 8, 2016 at 23:08
  • Oh, no problem.
