Inspired by the revelation here The all-in-one democratic game. [The game] that you can use custom strings of 3 characters by holding ‘shift’ and clicking the board while on the Letter analysis tool.
It makes me feel like there must be so many tricks that I’m missing out on!
If you know any maybe we can collect them here and push an update to the documentation here https://github.com/online-go/online-go.com/wiki/Advanced-Tips-&-Tricks#keyboard-shortcuts
Basically if you know of any tricks/tips (that’s the section) but in particular keyboard shortcuts drop a line
Also if you happen to know the variations for different OS that would be cool.
As an example - you can ‘cmd+click’ on the board it pasts the co-ordinate into the chat.
I also have a suggestion that could be useful if we wanted to display some keyboard shortcuts on the main site. There’s a trick with some sites like youtube where if you press shift+? (well whatever button you would normally use shift to get a question mark) and it brings up keyboard shortcuts. That was something fairly intuitive and yet unintuitive at the same time. I only noticed it because my dog stepped on my keyboard one time and brought it up, then had to guess how to do it again. (Oh apparently it’s also cmd+/ or ctrl+/ https://support.google.com/sites/answer/189191?hl=en)
Some old (older?) documentation from an old forum post https://ogs.readme.io/docs/reviews-and-demos#keyboard-shortcuts)
Actually maybe making a table would be good! I think ‘Review’ should include analysis demo etc - unless it turns out it doesn’t work there.

*The coordinates to chat allow for things like A0 and U20 off the board. Funny enough the whole column to the left of ‘A’ is ‘pass’.
**If you want to only use lower case letters, once you place the ‘Z’, you can place an ‘a’ and then click the ‘Z’ again to remove it, and the labelling will continue ‘b’,‘c’… etc
eventually cycling back to capital ‘A’.
- Probably worth linked here for things you can do in chat Chat shortcuts
- Not really a site shortcut, but you can use tab button and shift+tab to navigate/highlight buttons and press enter to choose a link. It means in theory you can navigate to all of the top buttons (Home Play games etc,) including ones not visible with the tab/shift and enter. Adding to that with the search bar hotkey Backtick you can tab and shift tab up and down that menu.
