Keyboard shortcuts: all menu and toolbox items should be selectable

Recommended Posts

In the Keyboard shortcuts editor you can assign shortcuts to a selection of menu items. I think all menu items should be selectable. For example, the Text menu has the useful item 'Toggle unicode'. But that could be made so much more useful if we could assign a shortcut to it.

Alt+U is the standard shortcut for Toggle Unicode (in Publisher on Windows, at least). It's found in the Preferences, Keyboard Shortcuts, in the Miscellaneous section.

Thank you, Walt, found it. But since in the interface the item is in the Text menu, I'd have expected it to be in the Text section in the KBSC editor. Miscellaneous would be for things that aren't available in the interface, such as a shortcut (like InDesign's) to activate the last used entry field in panel, a shortcut to close all documents, etc.

I agree, and cannot explain its placement in Miscellaneous for the shortcut editor.

Except, possibly, that Miscellaneous is the home for a number of other toggle-keys, so maybe it was grouped with them for that reason.

Unless I haven't found it you can't assign  Interactive>Insert>Hyperlink. You can however  assign  Interactive>Insert>Anchor and  Interactive>Show>Anchor.

I don't see it either.

Yes, they watch the topics in this forum, but if you think it's a bug you should post in the appropriate Bugs forum (Windows, Mac) as those are the ones the Quality Assurance team watches, and where they expect and track bug reports.

For example, Peter's initial post in this topic is clearly a feature request, not a bug. However yours feels like more of a bug report as it is specifically about a relatively new feature and an inconsistent implementation of that feature.
