Quick save in EPiServer

I want to save the article/page that I'm currently working on without automatic switch to the "view" tab in EPiServer.

Eg, when I write the page content I want to press CTRL+S and the properties will be saved into the page without leaving the ongoing edit phase. I want to continue write my page in the actual property. Just like a quick save as in MS Word.

Is this possible to accomplish? Any ideas?

    Hi

    I'm a bit confused. In EPiServer CMS 5, and very late version of CMS 4, there is a "Save" button that does what you want. Is it that you are running a pre 4.62 version?

    As for the ctrl+s to trigger the function, that may be a bit trickier. To save the page there has to be a post back. So you would need to add some custom script that did the same as pushing the save button.

    But cannot this function be implemented in the standard edition of Episerver?
    I mean it is standard short commands :)
    Standard commands in many publishing systems too...

    Wishlist item?

    Yes, I agree, short commands would be a very nice addition. Ctrl+s however may not be a perfect choice, since the browser/OS already uses that.

    Definatly a wish list item, and something we keep in mind when developing new UI:s.

    With CTRL+S the page would be saved and the page should not reload.

    For example: I'm writing a long story and in the middle of the text I want to save. If I press the save button the page reloads and the view gets into "view" mode. I really just want to continue my writing. CTRL+S and no reload would do the trick. Just background saving.

    CTRL+S could be overrided because the save html page is irrelevant in this case.
