Control-click triggers Flash context menu

Reported by: Kadin Owned by: potlatch-dev@…
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: potlatch2 Version:
Keywords: potlatch, chrome, macintosh Cc:


While using Potlatch2 I attempted to Control-click in order to join two ways. Unfortunately this is not possible as the Control-click triggers a Flash context menu, and does not seem to get passed to Potlatch at all.

I have checked the various Flash settings and there does not seem to be an obvious way to disable this.

At any rate it would be a showstopper for a newbie, even if there is a configuration buried somewhere.

Tested using Flash on Chrome 11.0.696.77 on Mac OS X 10.5.8 (Intel).

Confirmed behavior using Firefox 3.6.3 using the same version of Flash, on the same machine.

Of course it does. This is the same for every single Flash app on every Mac browser and there is no way around it.

Use command-click instead, as is the standard for discontiguous selection on the Mac, and as is indicated in the P2 docs.
