Sometimes when I'm answering a Javascript question, I'll open Chrome's console so that I can just check something quickly before I finish my post. The keyboard shortcut is Ctrl+Shift+I. The problem is that WMD mistakes this shortcut as the <em>/italic shortcut. The same problem exists in Opera, and Safari (Ctrl+Alt+I).

To clarify, this could potentially be a blocking issue in all browsers, and does not specifically apply to this keyboard combination, but all WMD Ctrl-key combinations.

Can !event.shiftKey && !event.altKey be added so that keyboard shortcuts operate on Ctrl only?

Ok we are checking for CTRL-ALT now and not mapping any shortcuts to that pair.
