Description pfelenda 2004-02-04 12:14:14 UTC
beta 3.6 build  I tried add shortcut to global keybindings (Tools|Options->Editing|Editor Settings->Global Key Bindings) but I added shortcut used in local Java Key Bindings. The shortcut was assigned without conflicts, but didn't work. It was called action from Java Key Bindings. I observed 1) that the Global Key Bindings dialog checks added shortcuts and if is used in this (Global) dialog then print the red colored info about conflicts. 2) the local Key Bindings e.g. for Java Editor checks both keybindings (local and global). The bahaviour should be the same for both dialogs. There should be checked all shortcuts: 1) the system shorcuts (Tools|Key Bindings), 2) Global Key Bindings 3) local keybindigs (for Java, JSP ...) mentioned above The bahavior that the local shortcuts rewrite the global is good, but user should know the information about all conflicts. There is a lot of shorcuts in IDE and user doesn't know all the key combinations.

The 3) is likely a problem. It may be problem from performance point of view to read all the bindings for _all_ the mime types. Another problem are conflicts with IDE-level shortcuts. It would be nice to unify shortcuts but the editor requires multi-key shortcuts which IDE does not support yet. Thus assigning to future.

Changing subcomponent to key bindings.

Also please check the problem mentioned at issue #59529 If you bound IDE global keybinding (via Tools/Keyboard Shortcuts), there is no check for the keystroke already used in editor specific shortcuts (Tools/Options/Editing/Editor Settings/ <and its subnodes> / keybindings/) (and vice versa) AFAIK, both keybindings dialogs sholud be unnified in the near future

keybindings are no longer mime type sensitive...
