Confirmed for master. Shortcuts are working as expected on 2.12.5.

I'm going to set the priority to High on this one because we will face real challenges in getting staff to use the web client without the keyboard shortcuts.

Kathy, this depends on what screen you're on or where the cursor is. I'm using chrome and web 2.12.5.
The shortcut keys do not work depending on what screen you're on. They work as long as you are not in a search screen, or if you are, as long as the cursor is not in a search field. If you hit F5 on the home screen, regardless of where the cursor is, you'll get item status. If you're on the basic search screen and hit F5 you get the advanced search screen, here if you hit F5 the screen refreshes. The same is true with browse the catalog search screen. On search screens, F5 acts the same as refresh.

If you are in circulation functions the shortcut keys work. For catalogers there's a problem as much of their work involves search screens.

Hi Janet,

The problem doesn't manifest until 3.0. In 2.12, they work as expected. IIRC, they don't work in an iframe, which includes the catalog screens and any of the Dojo screens, including Vandelay, acquisitions screens, etc.
