Put an link to "Keyboard Map" to "Keyboard Settings..."

Put an link to "Keyboard Map"  to "Keyboard Settings..."


Why not add an button to open  the "Keyboard Map"  to "Keyboard Settings..." -Dialog?
In that dialog it would be more needed?

---------

Also it would be nice to have this shortcut list sortable.
Can you make this list itself sortable?
Maybe provide at least an CSV output?
Or an HTML output with JS command to sort the columns?

----------

Even better of course provide this list inside HE
like the commands list with "Options>Keyboard" include search field :D
__________________
|__search_box__P___|
List
of
shortcuts
Alt+P     | command
Ctrl+P    |  command
Shift+P  | command
------------------------


So i can see what action an pressed  shortcut  would be do.
And i can search for an free shortcut before getting always  "shortcut is already taken" dialogs.

Generally agree, but space is problem. I do not want make samller command list. Maybe I would add new button after SaveAs and Delete. Somethink like Map or View.

It is already sorted by name. And this is used for filtering.
Or you mean exported HTML? Which you can see after Keyboard Map command. The all logic is inside keymap.xslt. If I would have time I can check what is possible. If you have some JS table example that can sort, send it me, I would apply it ;)

First I thought this can delay, bu now I see some easy way ;). Maybe I would add it soon.

Just to make this clear:
with sortable i mean sort the shortcuts (Alt+ , Ctrl+ , Shift+)  too
to find f.ex. Ctrl+P at easy to see what this would do if you would use this shortcut.

Sometimes i want to press an shortcut, but be afraid what would happens ,
is this THE right one to do what i want..
... or would this reformat all my code and port it to Suaheli before it trash all in the garbage :D

      to see all commands with assigned Shortcut starts with you search request




use    ----     to

shift              all Shift, Shift+, +Shift

Feature request  for the ToDo list:   

If i enter "Tools > Keyboard Settings..."   it would be nice if the search box would have the focus instead of the scheme box :D
