Picks up shortcuts nicely, even 'reserved' shortcuts such as F5 or Ctrl+S. Two suggestions: An option to ignore textboxes and it might be interesting for certain shortcuts to work across the whole application.

Michel, These features are already available in the javascript library. I have ported some more and advanced features of the library to be configurable in Mendix. We will release an updated version soon.

It works fine but it has a small bug: When placed on the home page based on enter key, a user is not able to enter a CR with the enter key in a text area througout the application. User has to use shift-enter to accomplish a RC in a text-area.
