    While translating this article to my locale i tested out the keyboard shortcuts to confirm what was working and what was not working. So here are my comment/changes that i would like others to have a look at before i send a revision: Please use the [[#support-for|Help with...]] selector > Please use the '''Customize this article''' selector {key Ctrl+O} > {key Ctrl+O} (O as in Open) {/for}{for mac}{key Command+P}{/for} (printing selected text work when writing a message, not when reading a message) |Find Text in Current Message||{for =tb31,=tb4,=tb5,=tb6,=tb7}{for win,linux}{key Ctrl+F} and then {key Ctrl+F} again{/for}{for mac}{key Command+F} and then {key Command+F} again{/for}{/for} {for tb8}{for win,linux}{key Ctrl+F}{/for}{for mac}{key Command+F}{/for}{/for} (what's going on here with 3 times ctrl+f ?) |Move to Next Mail Pane||{for win}{key F6}<br>{key Ctrl+F6} (If F6 does the same why is Ctrl+F6 here ?) {key Win+&darr;} (does not minimize the first time, have to do it once more) |Close window or tab||{for win}{key Ctrl+W}<br>{key Alt+F4}(only for closing a window}<br>{key Ctrl+F4} (only for closing a tab){/for}{for linux}{key Ctrl+W}{/for}{for mac}{key Command+W}{/for} (they also all seem to be able to close the window) |Move to previous main UI element||{for win}{key Shift+F6}<br>{key Ctrl+Shift+F6} (If Shift+F6 does the same why is Ctrl+Shift+F6 here ?) |Remove Named Anchors||{for =tb31,=tb5,=tb6,=tb7,=tb8,=tb9}{for win,linux}{key Ctrl+Shift+A} (attaches a file) |Find and Replace Text in Current Message||{for win,linux}{key Ctrl+F}{for tb24}<br>{key Ctrl+H} &nbsp;&nbsp;''New in TB 24''{/for}{/for}{for mac}{key Command+F}{/for} (Split into 2 lines.

    Some of your remarks were probably caused by tb31 markup, and I tried to fix these and some others in r111190. Could you have another look and see what’s still wrong? Feel free to add a new revision, of course.
