Keyboard shortcut for unfolding all item information sections?

Hi fellow kanji learners!

It’s been a while since I last reviewed anything on WK (shame, I know :face_with_open_eyes_and_hand_over_mouth:) and there’s something that is really bugging me…
I remember that last time I reviewed stuff on WK, at least a year ago, I used to press the spacebar to reveal/unfold all information in the item info after giving an answer for an item, but I can’t get it to work anymore.

I have tried disabling Tampermonkey and even Stylus (you never know), but even then it still won’t work. I’m using Firefox 121.0 on Windows 11.
Did the spacebar shortcut get disabled/changed? Or is there something broken here?
AFAIK, the WK knowledge guide still lists this shortcut, so I’m not so sure what the issue is here.

For more context, here’s what I expect to happen when I press spacebar when then item info is already displayed: the folded sections (like in the screenshot below) unfold to reveal everything about the item.

Sorry if this is a stupid issue, and thanks for your time if you read this :slight_smile:

Oh, and Happy New Year too :tada:

The shortcut for that is E

Bottom right has a keyboard icon that shows all up to date shortcuts


Thanks a lot! I did not notice this button but it’s good to know :slight_smile:
Guess I’ll have to train my muscle memory again on top of learning my kanji!

Yep. I’m having trouble finding the thread where they announced it, but have a feeling it was last April or thereabouts. Basically, it was an accessibility thing - spacebar is pretty standard as “scroll down” (when there’s no text box active) on most of the internet, so having it perform a different function here made us different.

Thanks for the heads up! Looks like we’ll need to fix that on the Knowledge Guide. I’ll log it to be updated.


Nice, thank you!
