I spent half an hour yesterday deleting dangerous keyboard
shortcuts from the keyboard settings, for exactly the same reason.
The default keyboard setup is full of dangerous and destructive
shortcuts, and I very seldom have use for most of them.
When I want to use one of those functions I can use the menues
I wrote the best article ever written about Taoism, now
nobody will ever read it. And it is impossible to restore it
We are often put in the situation where we have to write
in a text box on a web page, with all the web forums today,
and if you use googlegroups to post articles.
Yesterday I happened to touch a shortcut which closed down
Opera immediately, and the content of the text box was not restored
when I restarted it.
Maybe it isn't Opera's task to save what I write in a text box,
but now I have removed all such dangerous shortcuts, which
I never use, anyway.
I think about setting up a system for doing all text editing
in my own favorite editor.
Select all in the text box, copy to clipboard,
start text editor and paste clipboard.
After editing, save to hard disk, or autosave every 60 seconds,
then copy and paste back to the text box.
But how to automate this as much as possible?
