Description issues@www 2000-10-23 04:43:18 UTC
This actually belongs under some more global catagory, but I can find none that
seems proper.

The keymap configurator under Tools->Configure->Keyboard is missing some key
bindings that I find that I would like to change.  For example, I think I sould
be able to change simple bindings like Forward a character (currently the right
arrow key), goto end of line (end), and so on.

Less important to me, but still on the wishlist, are the ability to change the
keybindings that control highlighting (shift and the arrow keys), and the
ability to enter multiple keys as a keybinding (e.g. control-x control-s to save).

What I really want is emacs keymap emulation, but if the existing keymap
configurator could allow this, then distributing an emacs keymap would be possible.

The more "global category" you are looking for is the project "framework". If
you read it's description you'll find out that this is the place to go in the
future. Thanks.

Sorry, when changing the product from "word processor" to "framework" I forgot
to reassign the issue to the appropriate person.

For this is an enhancement Falko is the right person to handle it.

Along these lines, I would like to see SHORCUT KEYS made available for binding to 
STYLES as well (maybe group them in the organizer like Macros?)

I see that in Windows you can't use Alt as a modifier in the keyboard biondings. This is 
a real shame. 
Comment 8 falko.tesch 2003-09-11 15:43:45 UTC
Hmm, we in the meantime we re-worked most of our key-bindings
(accessibilty issue in 1.1) so most of your desires should be covered.
Please re-evaluate and close if appropiate. Thx.

I don't know why I'm the owner of this, though it's rather chic to be 
on issue 32. As far as I can see, there are two issues here. The 
original one can be closed. the second one, which I raised, is about 
having alt available as a keyboard modifier. That's still not 
possible, and still desirable. 

should I raise it as a new RFE? I'm trying to get into IZ to see if a 
similar issue exists, but having trouble in the other window. 

it looks to me as if 6302 and 11004 are the same issue. But I can't 
get a response fro IZ more than once every five times this evening, so 
I will post this here now

What's left of this issue is a duplicate of #6342. It may also have 
been solved by the patch in #11004, but I'm not certain I have 
understood that.
