#68 ESC as shortcut key


One user wrote:

I tried to assign "ESC" as short key to close the
"Ausgabeleiste". But looks that ESC is not usable as
short Key?! Would be a nice to have feature, for all
users familar ith MSVisualStudio.

    At the moment the [Esc] always gives the focus to the editor
    window. This is usefull, i.e. the hierarchical view has the
    focus and you are using it via keyboard. In this case you
    can simply hit [Esc] to switch back to the editor. But the
    current solution isn't good.

    For giving the focus to the document structur in example,
    one can use the [Strg]+[Q] key, but this can freely assigned
    via the customization dialog. Would be could if there would
    be a command called 'Set Focus to Editor' (or something
    similar) which would have assigned [Esc] by default. In this
    case nothing would change for the normal user, but advanced
    users would have the possibility, to use the [Esc] key for
    other things.

    1. We (now) have this "Set Focus to editor" command. I did it
    some months ago.

    2. You can't assign ESC to any command. BCG does not
    allow this - or the dialog is not recognizing this command.

    3. ESC is hard-coded to have the behaviour as requested
    (Visual Studio like)

    So I close this here.
