I want to disable alphanumeric shortcuts for cell editing

When you navigate your table and press any alphanumeric key, the cells content will be automatically replaced with this key and you can continue editing.

I dislike this behaviour and want to disable it.

I found this documentation page https://handsontable.com/docs/javascript-data-grid/keyboard-shortcuts/#edition-keyboard-shortcuts

What do I have to do to disable all alphanumeric “shortcuts”?

For testing, I tried to remove the “enter” shortcut (which works) following this example.


Hi @tim.fischer

To do this, you will need to use our Shortcut Manager, and simply remove the shortcuts in question. Here’s a section about removing the shortcuts: https://handsontable.com/docs/javascript-data-grid/keyboard-shortcuts/#remove-a-keyboard-shortcut
