shortcut suggestion

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

hey glad that the shortcuts are in,

like the goto connected layout/sheet very much

but i was thinking what if it was a switch, and you just tab "tab key"
for switching

and also e and l are on de opposite sides so if you want to switch you have to reposition your hand

edit: and now that i take another look at the list, if it was like this, you can almost do everthing with left hand from the listvtrix2011-11-24 01:17:11

Good idea, decided to make it Ctrl+Tab for next build (so you can still do it with one hand).

Because tab switches between different controls (i.e. buttons, text boxes, check boxes, etc.). It's like the standard for all windows programs.

[QUOTE=Zephlon] Because tab switches between different controls (i.e. buttons, text boxes, check boxes, etc.). It's like the standard for all windows programs.[/QUOTE] I know but in the main construct window(layout), pressing tab doesn't do nothing, so it can be used to change to the next window, very easier to do than ctrl+tab.

IF you have a window opened that have buttons, or an event box, then the tab will be used in there to cicle between the options, but in this case, you aren't at the layout screen with no box/window opened.

@Guif0DA - erm, this is a post from November... it ended up being Ctrl+L and Ctrl+E to prevent it conflicting with other keyboard shortcuts...
