Smooth keyboard usage


#1

Do we think we’re close to being able to use keyboard for nearly everything? There’s a few cases where i need that mouse and maybe there always will be. I’m wondering what people think are the lacks preventing you to really be comfortable.


#2

File manipulation mainly (for the folders and documents in the left pane).

Editing settings, probably, but I think that’s expected, given you don’t constantly tweak settings.

This too: Keyboard shortcut to clear search results


#3

Currently, Ctrl+left arrow and Ctrl+right arrow do nothing. It would be great if Ctrl+right expanded the current heading and Ctrl+left collapsed the current heading. In order to do so now, you have to take your right hand away from the arrow keys and move it to the “.”


#4

The problem is that Ctrl+Left and Ctrl+Right are typically used to move to before and next word.


#5

Ctrl-Space expands and collapses the current heading.


#6

You’re right, Ctrl+Left and Ctrl+Right are already used. Ctrl+Space doesn’t work for me. Is it supposed to? Only Ctrl+Period collapses or expands for me. Perhaps Ctrl+Alt+Up and Ctrl+Alt+Down could be used? In Windows 7, these key combinations are used to change the screen display orientation and, I think, are expendable.


#7

You’re right, I added Ctrl-Space as a custom shortcut. I think it’s perfect, Ctrl-Period doesn’t suit me.


#8

A new discovery: top-level, top of list, I press Page-Down twice. The cursor doesn’t follow the scrolling, and I can’t do anything onscreen.


#9

I just discovered that you can customize the keystroke commands. This app is great!
