#3 shortcuts

KMetronome (2)

Some shortcuts would be nice.. especially for 'play' and 'stop' :)

It's a bit annoying to grab the mouse all the time. The most comfortable would be to trigger both of them with space only.. what do you think?

    There are already keyboard shortcuts for all buttons, automatically created by KDE. This is true for all KDE applications, not only for KMetronome.

    The shortcuts are usually Alt+one letter. And you can see which letter is assigned, because it appears underscored. For instance, KMetronome (in English language) uses the following key sequences as keyboard shortcuts:

    Alt+P -> Play
    Alt+o -> Stop
    Alt+C -> Config
    Alt+E -> Exit

    Maybe the accelerator keys dialog can be enabled in the future. This feature request will remain open, as a remainder.

    Yes, I know these shortcuts exist, but even so, assigning a globally known "pause" key (aka 'space') to play/stop playing would be nice :)

    I don't like to use the space key for this purpose, as it is already assigned to the push action for any focused button. That is, a global and well known usage.

    Anyway, in the current CVS there are the following two changes:
    - The "Configure Shortcuts" dialog is enabled.
    - There is a new toggle action "Play/Stop", attached to the File menu. It has no default keyboard shortcut, but the user can configure any key or sequence, for instance the spacer.

    OK, thanks, that's what I meant initially :)
