    Hi. Great plugin. We have an issue though. Our Admins use different keyboards (some are in different countries) and the default key can be assigned to @ or other functions - meaning it pops up every time.

    We've tried changing the ID number but we can't find one that suits all. Any chance the modal could appear based on key-strokes rather than a single key? Thanks.

    Hi Dan,

    Thanks for your feedback.
    I added your feedback to the issue tracker on GitHub. It will be a good improvement to make the keyboard mapping better.
