Could you please implement a keyboard shortcut for "Save and Close" for "Edit event" and "New task"? Ctrl+S does not appear to work at the moment.

Feature requests are best submitted to Bugzilla.

Current shortcuts are Ctrl+D for New Task and Ctrl+I for New Event. Ctrl+L = Save and Close.

Ctrl+L = "Save and Close": does not work for me (the other two work). It's also not documented under Calendar/Lightning:

I agree with the request here: In my opinion, it's irritating that double/right clicking an event in the calendar doesn't open a window that permits to edit the event directly, without clicking on another button first.

Following your advice, I had the intention to use Bugzilla to submit my request and successfully created an account (was slightly annoyed that a separate account is required, but OK). When I discovered that it's not possible to open a bug report without my email address being publicly displayed, I aborted. Don't mind that the system knows it, but don't want it publicly displayed (remember spam?). GitLab and GitHub have better privacy options. Please correct me if I've overlooked something.

Ctrl+L = "Save and Close" works here in W10, but it might not on Linux.

If the Find Events pane is open (under Events & Tasks), selecting an event and then Enter opens the editor.

I don't see an option to hide addresses on Bugzilla, but it might be there.
