Once upon a time, pressing
Enter submitted comments, even while converting Kanji using Japanese input methods. This was fixed by disabling
Enter to submit comments altogether:
- Please disable Enter to submit comments (Jun 1 '11)
- Please disable Enter to submit comments (again) (Jun 22 '16)
Then, there was a fix. (Thank you @Chocolate for letting me know.)
- Improved IME Handling, re-enabling Enter to submit (Jun 22 '16) --(*)
With this fix (*),
Enter now sends comments, except when you're selecting the conversion suggested by the input method.
I feel this is irksome, and would like you to concider disabling Enter altogether again.
Enter frequently while typing in Japanese (変換文字列の確定のために): very often I press Enter twice accidentally, which sends the comment without my intention. I usually end up editing 3-4 times before my comment is finally what I meant it to be.
Enter to submit suits for input boxes where it isn't otherwise pressed: comments in English, in one hand, is a good fit because no newlines are included; comments which include Japanese, on the other hand, are more like normal posts or tweets in this regard. For shortcut,
Enter should send the comment.
The idea was briefly discussed in the response for (*), but I don't think it gathered enough attention from the community.
Environment (just in case): Linux (Xubuntu 18.04), Mozilla Firefox 70.0.1, fcitx+mozc for Japanese input.
