Improve shortcuts for bold/italic/underline
Last modified: 2017-02-24 12:52:09 UTC
Is there any reason to use <Alt><Shift>B shortcut for Bold and <Alt><Shift>I shortcut for Italic by default?
That is very complicated to stroke these keys with one hand...
In a lot of applications, Bold is <Control>B, Italic is <Control>I, and Underline is <Control>U.
Only Emphasis is already <Control>E.
Good question, I don't remember where <Alt><Shift>B/I come from, probably from Kile.
If <Ctrl>B/I/U are free, it would indeed be better to use them.
Myself I don't use those shortcuts, I usually use the auto-completion or the mouse to click on a toolbar item.
Yes, they are free.
But I can't change shortcuts by editing ~/.config/latexila/accels file.
Maybe it can become a new feature: changing default shortcuts through GUI.
If a library provides a shortcut editor that is easy to integrate in an application, then, maybe, one day, latexila will have a shortcut editor. But I will not write the library feature myself.
Ok, sorry, I was thinking GTK provides such features.
Any way to change shortcuts without changing latex_menu.vala? ~/.config/latexila/accels is overwritten.
I'm sure it used to be possible, but with the latest GTK+ 3 version I don't know.
Fixed with commit 97139be33162fb9d4d1d9679f7f76f7d6d7a4008.
Thanks for the bug report!
Thank you very much for your patch!
