@lokanchung When it comes to filling the template, this feature request is ready to be moved to #features. I just wonder whether it is too generic, and whether it would be better to divide it in consistent chunks that we can connect with each other. What do you think?
Also, there are other requests related to #shortcuts. As of now, they are specific to one gesture. Same thought, does it make more sense to go after specific gestures o something more generic?
In any case, feel free to mention this request in those more specific. They are completely related.
I suppose we could interpret “full” literally and take it that the intention is to request customisable shortcuts for everything, which I fear might be unrealistic. Are there particular shortcuts you feel are missing which could be requested more specifically?
By “full” I meant fixing broken current shortcut editing and extending configuration to mouse actions and modifiers and even context. But I think your interpretation makes point too. Yeah, it’s a big feature request. But it’s not unrealistic as written in the orignal post, Blender has done it nicely and major texture editors has this feature too.
For example in Blender, you can change modifiers for mouse actions. e.g. dragging with middle mouse button rotates object by default but users can change both assign button and modifier.
Text editors let people chose which shortcuts are global or only active in certain context.
I’ve seen people who wants to change modifiers to be same as their previous DAW, and other people complaining not having shortcuts for closing VST window, note audition, etc. And I don’t like that current play/pause shortcut (spacebar) behaviour as it is ignored when some Vst window is open.
Also, I’m personally mad at setting middle mouse Pan mode not only change middle mouse drag behaviour but changes other behaviours too. Pan & Zoom mode is Bitwig default, MM dragging vertically zooms horizontally scrolls horizontally. Pan mode is supposed to change only mm drag behaviour to dragging horizontally and vertically scrolls horizontally and vertically. But zoom isn’t Ctrl+MW but plain MW with Pan mode.
This is intended behaviour confirmed by devs.
This request would ultimately solve all cases above.
This sounds like a good way to get some more specific requests while still keeping the broader hope of it being a more full implementation. It’s been a few days so how about we work towards getting this separated out into three requests?
Yeah, I’ve been quite tempted to keep it combined as there are some other big requests (e.g. better piano roll).
And I noticed that, in ‘Better Piano roll’, specific requests are being piled up in relevant links section.
I like how things are grouped in a single ‘meta request’ and I think it’s good to do the same with this draft.
