How To Change Keyboard Shortcuts
« on: March 09, 2017, 03:58:19 AM »
I have looked all over for information on this. Is there any way to change your keyboard shortcuts? When editing a mass number of short files it is easier to have my right hand on the mouse and my left on the WASD instead of the UDLR Arrows. If not is there a way to request this feature. Thanks! - Psyops Gaming

Sure. Edit avidemux/common/ADM_commonUI/myOwnMenu.h to your liking and rebuild Avidemux (if you use Windows, you'll need Linux for that).

This is a very common feature request, to entirely different, mutually exclusive values. If you would like to see Avidemux enhanced with a runtime keyboard accel editor soon: patches warmly welcome.

Actually, this is not quite that simple. Some keyboard accels are hardcoded in MainWindow::eventFilter in avidemux2/avidemux/qt4/ADM_userInterfaces/ADM_gui/Q_gui2.cpp, but you rather don't mess with the code there, because all the keys you want to use for navigation instead of the arrow keys already have different actions assigned across the application when pressed together with the Ctrl modifyer key.

So even if you succeed in assigning W, A, S and D to actions currently assigned to Up, Left, Down and Right, you can't achieve consistency.

Sucks that I have to go back to the older version which moves around madly when zooming in/out just because of the ridiculousness of changing [] to ctrl pg up/dn :(
It is a sad day when great software becomes less usable with no way to change settings to our liking
My kybd has no Pg Up/Dn
