    When typing in the text editor, if i press Ctrl+I then italics BBC are automatically inserted into the post. But what is the shortcut for adding tex and itex tags?

    If for some odd reason, there isn't such a thing yet, it would be a really really excellent idea to implement this into the forum software, as it gets very tiring to type out these tags, especially in long posts, or when replying/helping several people.

    No keyboard shortcut, but you can use $$ which is easy to type.
