Keyboard Shortcuts While Posting

Well, I'll be "datt-snippit". Here is the information I needed the day I cried and snivelled and snotted all over the place about why I couldn't cut and paste in Blogger. Made a big stink, called Blogger all kinds of names, yelled at it a few times. The information was hidden! Right there under my nose! If it had been a snake it would have bitten me - right on the nose (it's so close to the keyboard).

HOWEVER, and I can't emphasize this too much. THIS INFORMATION WAS HIDDEN by a little dialog cloud announcing, "Google Now Saves Automatically". The silly little thing was hovering around over (covering ) this information.

Here it is for anyone new who needs it. It is located just below your "Compose A Post" box.
Q: Can I use keyboard shortcuts while posting?
A: Blogger has several keyboard shortcuts you can use while editing posts. They definitely work in Internet Explorer 5.5+/Windows and the Mozilla family (1.6+ and Firefox 0.9+), and might work in other browsers. Here they are:
control + b = Bold
control + i = Italic
control + l = Blockquote (when in HTML-mode only)
control + z = Undo
control + y = Redo
control + shift + a = Link
control + shift + p = Preview
control + d = Save as Draft
control + p = Publish Post
control + s = Autosave and keep editing
control + g = Indic transliteration


  1. These are great, thanks! I've had one of these moments too when I'd been struggling with something in Blogger for so long then all of a sudden (BAM!) it was right there the entire time.

    Makes you feel a little silly and a little relieved all at the same time.


I'm so glad you came by. PLEASE, let me know you were here and leave a comment.

Have a wonderful wonderful day!
