Description matthies 2016-08-09 18:46:38 UTC
Please provide a keyboard shortcut to access the recent commit messages dialog ("Select A Commit Message") from the Commit dialog. Currently it is only accessible via mouse pointer. It's not even in the Commit dialog's Tab-key sequence.

The same should probably be done for "Load Template". (I just haven't had a need for that feature so far.)
Comment 1 Jiri Kovalsky 2016-09-08 10:10:45 UTC
Product Version: NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 201608290002)
Java: 1.8.0_101; Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 25.101-b13
Runtime: Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment 1.8.0_101-b13
System: Linux version 3.13.0-37-generic running on amd64; UTF-8; cs_CZ (nb)

Reproduced. Can you Ondro at least make the two buttons traversable via Tab key? Thanks!
Comment 2 Ondrej Vrabec 2016-09-08 13:03:20 UTC
No, I cannot make it accessible via Tab key. I added a shortcut KB actions however: Alt-R to open recent messages and Alt-L to open Load Template dialogs.

Comment 3 Quality Engineering 2016-09-09 01:53:22 UTC
Integrated into 'main-silver', will be available in build *201609090002* on (upload may still be in progress)

I don't see the fix in NB 8.2 (tried with SVN and GIT).
Comment 5 Ondrej Vrabec 2017-02-09 14:37:15 UTC
The fix is not in 8.2, it's in dev. Will be part of the upcoming release.
