I'm sumbitting this according to our previos
conversation. The goal is to have the shortcuts
configurable through standart jEdit setup.

Brett, can you create one little jar from current CVS
without shortcuts?

My friend is not using the gruntspud plug-in because he
usually writes some characters through pressing ALT key
and writing letters on numpad. Hardcoded ALT-numpad
shortucts are problem for him.

    From 0.4.6 there is now an option "Disable keyboard
    accelerators" in the System preferences tab. Selecting this
    and restarting Gruntspud prevents **any** keyboard
    accelerators being used.

    If you wish to change the accelerators, this can now be done
    overiding the ResourceBundle.properties resource in each
    package. As you say, whilsts the best solution would be to
    have this integrated into the jEdit preferences, this and
    the disable switch will suffice for now.

    I already have planned for the the jEdit integration, so
    will close this issue.

    Sorry, don't work for us. We used "Disable keyboard
    accelerators" checkbox, but it doesn't work. Try pressing
    ALT+NUMPAD-1.

    I cannot duplicate this here. What actually happens when you
    do press ALT+NUMPAD-1, and what is focused when this is pressed?

    On our WXPP, when we press ALT+NUMPAD-1, the "All tools"
    button on gruntspud toolbar gets the focus and pulldown
    menu appears.
    The goal is that you can write special characters by
    ALT+NUMPAD-ASCIICODE. You can test that when you press
    LEFT ALT, type 64 on numpad and release ALT key, the '@'
    sign appears in editor. But when I have gruntspud plug-in
    open, something on toolbar gets the focus when I start
    writing ASCII CODE.
    This is something we really don't need because when we
    press SHIFT-2 (as on english keyboard normaly '@' sign
    appears), when you have set Czech keyboard in WXPP,
    special character like é appears.
    So sometimes the LEFT ALT+NUMPAD combination is the only
    way to type wpecial characters. Another way is keyboard
    switching, which is not comfortable.

    Apologies. They say tomorrow never comes, well it has now ;-)

    Right, im hoping this is now fixed in CVS and will be
    available in the next release. It seemed to have been caused
    by mis-understand of how accelerators worth with buttons.
    All the buttons ended up with different accelerators to the
    menu items, made up from the mnemonic for the button. This
    sometimes produced odd accelerators like ALT+NUMPAD-1.
    There were in fact a number of actions that were assigned
    this accelerator, and i think ive found them all. But in
    case I havn't then the new preference should disable all
    accelerators now anyway.
