PR #6506 Shortcut Manager

Post by realthunder »

https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/pull/6506

Visit the link above to see demo video.

Support longest key sequence match with user defined delay (configurable through 'Customize -> Keyboard -> Key sequence delay'). For example, shortcuts 'F', and 'F, F' can now coexist without any problem.

Supports user defined priority to resolve shortcut conflict through 'Customize -> Keyboard'.

Do you think it's worth re-considering the recently changed default shortcuts of Sketcher?

It is always worth to improve.

If I got the idea right, you allow single key shortcuts by inserting a small configurable delay before execution to wait for an additional keystroke, so that they do not interfere with multiple key shortcuts. I do not see any issue with having additional functionality (actually, as the delay is configurable, I do not foresee impact for people with disabilities requiring longer press or longer time between presses either).

As for the specific sketcher shortcuts, I do not think it clashes with this PR. Maybe I am wrong. If this is PR is merged, it will definitely trigger a review. If we can have better more comfortable shortcuts, I see no reason not to have them :)

Here is a good place to discuss potential improvements for specific combinations of keys for sketcher shortcuts:
