  • Ctrl+C/Cmd+C - copy
  • Ctrl+X/Cmd+X cut

If you see your language isn't completed at 100% - please help doing this by joining Transifex projects.

To-do list:

1. Joomla 4. The replacement of fields in the com_fields component temporarily does not work. In Joomla 4 there is no interception of modal windows from core file manager (com_media) except image selection in Article Edit mode. All works fine in Joomla 3.
2. Adaptive design. The existing version is not compatible with gadgets. We know about it and later it will be fixed.
3. WCAG support.
