Hi,

2009/4/20 <webpost_at_tigris.org>:
> Ever since I upgraded to Tortoise SVN 1.6.1 my keyboard shortcut for the OK button is now missing.  I used to be able to start a commit, type my comments and then hit Alt-O to finish the commit without having to take my hands off the keyboard.

Use [Ctrl]-[Enter] instead.

It was removed because the OK button already has a keyboard equivalent
([Enter], or [Ctrl]-[Enter] if a multiline edit has focus). The
Microsoft styleguide for Windows GUI applications advises against
extra keyboard accelerators on OK and Cancel buttons because they can
already be activated by [Enter] and [Esc].

There have been several threads about this recently, and AFAIK there
is no compelling argument to have the Alt-O shortcut re-introduced.
