Feature suggestions, customizable hotkeys

Post by ttkx001 » Tue Mar 12, 2019 12:07 am

I recommend that in the new version, I can customize the hotkeys in the iMacros editor. This feature is very useful for most programmers, thanks in advance. :P

Ah-hum..., I don't understand your Post exactly... :?

Are those "HotKeys" already implemented or not...?, and if 'Yes', in which "new Version" are you referring to...?
And you could also mention which FCI(s) you are using yourself...? ("FCI" = "Full Config Info", read my Sig...)

If you are making a Suggestion and asking for some new Feature, can you give more "Details" and be more "concrete", with some concrete Example(s), and maybe some Reference to some other Editor/Programming Language where that Functionality is already implemented...?

I maintain a List of EnhReq's (Enhancement Requests) in this Thread, but I need/want to understand yours before I will include it in "my" List... (that you are encouraged to review and to "support" if you see other EnhReq's I have already listed and that you might find "useful"... :wink: )
- (F)CIM = (Full) Config Info Missing: iMacros + Browser + OS with all 3 Versions...
- I usually don't even read the Question if that (required) Info is not mentioned...
- Script & URL usually help a lot for a more "educated" Help...

Custom hotkeys for functions/key/buttons.

HotKeys (standard) vs custom HotKeys (rebind possible)

Seriously? You have never used custom hotkeys?

Example with Eclipse (IDE):

Yeah, well, @OP came up with a somewhat a bit "vague" or vaguely formulated EnhReq in my Opinion, and they could have followed up on their Thread anyway...
And they could have mentioned from which "other" Editor they would have liked to see that Functionality "inspired" by for iMacros...

And hum, I was going to mention that I already knew at least 1 Hotkey for the iMacros Editor (=> 'Ctrl^f' for 'Find' (and 'Replace')) but that Hotkey actually got broken in v10.0.2 for FF (Beta), and that was for me and other "serious" Users/Testers one of the most Blocking Bugs in that Beta Version, and it never got fixed in the v10.0.2 for FF that was later released...

And re-hum, "trying" a few Hotkeys or Key Combinations, and interestingly enough, look what I trigger with 'Ctrl^e' (=> "e" for "Editor"), ah-ah...!
Editarea 0.7.2.3

Shortcuts:
Tab: add tabulation to text
Shift+Tab: remove tabulation to text
Ctrl+f: search next / open search area
Ctrl+r: replace / open search area
Ctrl+h: toggle syntax highlight on/off
Ctrl+g: go to line
Ctrl+z: undo
Ctrl+y: redo
Ctrl+e: about
Ctrl+q, Esc: close popup
Accesskey E: Toggle editor

Notice: syntax highlight function is only for small text

(This one is from the Editor from iMacros for FF v8.8.2 (+ Pale Moon v26.3.3 (=FF47), Win10_x64).)
And I also get the exact same Popup and same Version in iMacros for FF v8.9.7, FF v55.0.3, Win10_x64.

And hum..., interesting to see that the iMacros Side Panel after a RuntimeError is probably using the 'Ctrl^g' directly, ah-ah...!

I'm not sure what this "Accesskey E: Toggle editor" is btw...?, I don't know and can't find this 'Accesskey' on my Keyboard... :?

Short check... eclipse, notepad++ and many more editors, maybe?

Good question. Unknown function. XPI-Code check required. :shock:
Wiki found: https://wiki.imacros.net/Shortcut_Keys but no Accesskey E :evil:
