There's a shortcut for nearly everything else, and since some of the shortcuts have changed (a is now m, even though both work, for example) I wonder if there is a shortcut to start a comment on a currently open card.

  • Inspect the page source on a Trello card page and search for "accesskey=". Do you see any HTML elements relating to starting a comment that include an accesskey attribute? If not, it is pretty easy to add keyboard shortcuts to a web app using client-side javascript. Feb 12 '14 at 3:49

    They so need this. Feb 25 '14 at 18:14

Unfortunately not, though the shortcuts help page will be kept up-to-date as new shortcuts are added.


Although there is no shortcut for this available - on Chrome 55/Windows 10, with a card already open, use CTRL+L (or ALT+D) to go to location bar and then hit Tab. Cursor will land on Comment text box.


This post is currently the top search result on Google so here is an alternative (albeit still indirect) method:

With the card open, press E (shortcut to edit the description), then TAB four times. This should put you directly into the new comment text box.

    Sometimes you need to press TAB more than four times, when there are images or documents.
