key bindings bug [Mar. 9th, 2005|07:07 am]

I think there's a bug with the key bindings in LogJam 4.4.1

Ctrl+Alt+I should italicize like Ctrl+Alt+B should bold. But it actually brings up the dialog to insert an image.

I would think Ctrl+Alt+P (for Picture) could be used as an alternate for the current binding...

Or better yet, let the user set his/her own bindings!! :-)

just a thought.

This is kinda old (1 year or so) bug (from the version of LogJam which added "Insert Image" functionality) and I have already suggested using Ctrl-Alt-P for that.

As for the user to set his own keybindings for menu items, this is a GTK feature so it's available "for free" for LogJam as well as any other GTK app. Below is an extract from GTK2 README:

   - Editing of menu accelerators by pressing an accelerator over the
     menu item is disabled by default. To enable, it, add:

      gtk-can-change-accels = 1

     to your ~/.gtkrc-2.0

I will fix it when I have access to a Linux box (maybe tomorrow).

Also, note that if you're using GNOME, you'll need to change this using gconf-editor; the relevant key is /desktop/gnome/interface/can_change_accels.

I'm still having problems with this. I added that line to my ~/.gtkrc-2.0 but nothing changed. How do I actually change the accelerator? Do I right-mouse-click? Sacrifice a virgin?

thanks!

Much much easier - just put your mouse pointer over the target menu item and press key-combination you want for this item.

awesome...awesome to the max. :-)

Now, how do I delete a menu-accelorator?

thanks!

To be honest - I've no idea about that! Possible solutions would be:
- reassign to something else the same way you did it
- find out configuration file or entry in gconf responsible for that and remove it
- try pressing something like Esc or Space or ....

Or, as a last resort, RTFM or Google for that :)
