#51 Keyboard shortcuts not working after rev 1094

GUI (13)

Yesterday i updated my working copy from svn, successfully built juffed (without warning etc).
Now no keyboard shorcut is working!
I mean things like Ctrl+N, Ctrl+O, Ctrl+W, F11 and so on - none works.

I'm on gentoo linux, using fluxbox.

I looked at last changes and revision 1094 "fix for Terminal: Ctrl-C and Ctrl-\ is not supported" by subik is the one responsible for this!

If i commented this line out shortcuts works again.

    The problem is this.

    Qt::WidgetWithChildrenShortcut means:
    The shortcut is active when its parent widget, or any of its children has focus. Children which are top-level widgets, except pop-ups, are not affected by this shortcut context.

    Here see the "its parent widget".

    But these actions are created in CommandStorage::addAction(...,obj,slot) which makes qAction(parent=obj).

    And thats it - JuffEd::initActions - calls CommandStorage::addAction(obj=this) ... but JuffEd IS NOT QWidget if i didn't missed something ... at least JuffEd has mainwindow inside itself (mw_) ...

    So parent of these QActions should be this mw_ if Qt::WidgetWithChildrenShortcut needs to be used.

    But then it's not simply possible to change all these CommandStorage::addAction(obj=this) in JuffEd::initActions ... because "obj" will be used also for connect() ... and these target slots are not in mw_.

    So at first look i see two solutions:
    A) reparent all required actions after addAction
    B) create overloaded CommandStorage::addAction(key, name, parent, slotOwner, slot)
    which does "new QAction(parent=parent); connect(..., slotOwner, slot);"

    The second one is maybe better ... but still all calls of CS::addAction needs to be verified manualy, to finish what rev1094 began.

    Thank you for your investigation, I'll see what can be done here. Indeed, there is a problem with handling hotkeys with this flag set if the receiving object is not a QWidget.
    I'll try my guesses shortly.

    temp fix has been commited. It's only a workaround unfortunately.

    Tried to play around with shortcut modes. Unfortunately I couldn't make it work properly without a hack introduced by Petr.
    Let it be like that right now (I was planning to change how Terminal operates anyway).
