Shift+P doesn't seem to be a functioning hotkey anymore.

How to turn off opera keyboard shortcuts?

Zeynel Abidin Öztürk Admin says in reply to Srki : 4 years ago 7/20/2020 11:45 PM
Seems like they can be disabled individually in Settings (rather than all in once)

nat OP says : 4 years ago 4/20/2020 9:28 PM
What about paste with the same style? I don't think there's actually a way in Opera to change the hotkeys for paste, and I was hoping to be able to make a hotkey to paste with matching style.
