Need keyboard shortcuts

There is not an option to bold or italicize text within a Button in the new editor. In Chrome, I can click Ctrl-B to bold as a work-around; however, the changes are not saved when I close and reopen the editor.

"Cut" or Ctrl+X needs to cut the selected text and put it in the clipboard, ie queue it to be pasted (like all other word processing tools on earth). Right now all Ctrl+X does is effectively delete text.

You can't use ctrl-b to bold and other commands which would be nice to have shorthands for.

Hi @OriettaS -- Unfortunately, Firefox overrides certain common keyboard shortcuts. It doesn't appear that Firefox plans on addressing this issue: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=418169

Make it easy to insert a standard superscript symbol like "TM" or "(R)" in an email.  Use Word as your model. I have to call support each time or try to remember the HTML code. At the very least, provide the instructions in FAQs, I couldn't find anything.

Keyboard shortcuts work in the editor much better now. (We also added more text formatting options in the toolbar for buttons which was an underlying problem for the original request.)
