Description _ pkuzel 2002-03-05 13:47:23 UTC
I am looking for way how to share global shortcuts by mutualy enabled actions.

E.g. XML module wish to use:
F9       for CheckAction
Shift+F9 for ValidateAction
F6       for TransformAction

but it clashes with Java shortcuts.

All mayor XML tools use shortcuts - see XML Spy for example: F7, F8
and F10. These also clashes with currently assigned actions while they
are mutually exclusive with XML actions.

Comment 6 Jaroslav Tulach 2010-10-13 12:51:35 UTC
Sort of supported by use of, javax.swing.Action, boolean, java.lang.String, java.lang.String, boolean)

You just need those two "(a bit) different actions" agree on a common key.
