I Want Italics! Grrrrr!

Whose stupid idea was it to assign Ctrl+I to the "Favorites" menu in IE9?

I do like to use italics in my EF posts and it annoys me no end that I now have to take my hand away from the keyboard to click a bloody button.


Grrrr!*

Re: I Want Italics! Grrrrr!

[ I ] [ /I ] works as well (but it's a lot of extra typing)

Since there is no button for strike through I always have to type in [ S ] [ /S ]

Re: I Want Italics! Grrrrr!

Can't you change the shortcut options somewhere? (using firefox and internet explorer 8, so not sure)

I have never been able to get that to work. For example, if I type strike, should it not work?

Edit: Gosh, it did!!!! It does not show in Preview ...

Re: I Want Italics! Grrrrr!

If you use italics, it may indicate the use of sarcasm or irony.

If you're using sarcasm or irony sarcastically or ironically, press "Italic" twice, this will unslant the appropriate characters thereby cunningly disguising your use of sarcasm or irony. It's obvious.

If you're using Internet Explorer, chances are, you aren't on a Mac, in which case you need to go get your head examined.

(Did you see what I did there ....?)
