Thanks, Nick! Btw, one burning question I had about the Forem editor... on the main editor where people write articles, I noticed that you guys don't support keyboard shortcuts (eg. <ctrl+b> to bold and <ctrl+i> to italicize, etc). But here in the comment editor, shortcuts are supported! ๐Ÿคจ

Is this a deliberate design decision by the Forem devs to purposefully nerf the Forem editor to encourage people to write shorter articles? If so, I totally understand (makes sense to encourage bite-sized chunks of consumable content versus people writing Homeric odysseys). But if not, I'm actually really tempted to make a PR for keyboard shortcuts in the main article editor. ๐Ÿš€

Thanks for clarifying! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™
