For all of us in wordpress.com, there is a shortcut that will ‘unleash’ the editor toolbar.
Toggle simple/advanced toolbar:
firefox 2 alt + shift + v
firefox 1.5 alt + v
IE alt + b
you can change the font color and include special symbols.
Firefox 2 alt + shift + t
firefox 1.5 alt + t
“add page” function:
firefox 2 alt + shift + g
firefox 1.5 alt + g
More shortcuts can be seen when you hover your mouse on the buttons.
Why WordPress.com have not revealed this officially, that I don’t know. These functionalities are available with direct downloads of wordpress for independent users, and I found them in wordpress.com by accidental clicks. Then they took the advanced editor functionality off wordpress.com, and only put them up again only recently. Please tell me what I don’t know.
