I'm using Joomla and it's integrated TinyMCE editor. I would like to use a shortcut like shift+space or ctrl+shift+space to insert a non breaking space fast and simple instead of to have to click a button in the toolbar.

I've found a blog article from Ryan Pollard about adding shurtcuts in TinyMCE. But I don't know, where I have to add the code.

I'm not a programmer. Could you help me to add this shortcut?

Thanks in advance

Best regards, Andreas
