Heh, just committed, actually. I used Shift Spacebar since it's personally much easier for me to hit on this laptop keyboard (with fn key on the left of Ctrl) and also if I remember correctly, Ctrl Space is sometimes used for language switching on Windows? Could be wrong there...

That's a good question. I have Ctrl-Shift for language switch here, but maybe ctrl-space is the official one.

PS: Silly Mac laptops, having Fn in the corner instead of Ctrl ;)

Hi everybody

After downloading v. 2.37 and seeing that your changes for maximizing/minimizing the viewports didn't made it in this release, I'm bringing this subject back in your attention.

So we had two possible solutions:

- simply changing CTRL-UPARROW to a less cumbersome shortcut (CTRL-SPACEBAR or SHIFT-SPACEBAR, or maybe something else)
Ctrl-Spacebar is now used for the transformation widget selection menu, so I understand...

- changing the behaviour of the Spacebar like this: hiting Spacebar maximizes/minimizes the viewport where the cursor is located, and keeping Spacebar pressed for a second or less brings up the Toolbox

I personally favor the second solution - it would make for a faster, better workflow. Any opinions?

Anyway, thank you all for 2.37. You are on the right track!

Bogdan :)

It's the first time in my life I deeply regret I'm not a programmer :cry:
I would have done that myself.

Have a nice day
Bogdan

I too would prefer the second option but any of them would be welcome.

Just a note: Shift spacebar is now in bf cvs as an alternative to ctrl up/down.

wouldn't it be better if we could just reassing hotkeys dynamically? so anyone could set them up as needed. E.g. in my gnome setup many ctrl hotkeys clash with some set in the window manager.

A refactor needs to be done on the event handling code before assignable keys can take place,

it isn't yet certain when that will happen,

anyway it's nice to hear that it will be done eventually; I was afraid that it was a design decision not to make keys assignable...
