WinFBE 3.0.0 BETA 3 hotkeys - can't disable any of them
« on: April 22, 2022, 09:46:18 PM »

Paul, I would really like to be able to disable some of the default hotkeys.

You've used most of the keyboard combinations that are available in the world, [grin], and several of those defaults conflict with hotkeys I have set up in other applications. I can't see any way to disable any of the WinFBE key defaults for functions that I don't even utilize in the WinFBE IDE. At the moment, all I can do is try to find some garbage combo (to me) that you haven't already mapped and set the unused (by me) functions to those garbage hotkeys. That is a pain in the keister that could be avoided by simply allowing us to disable key functions that we don't use.

Thanks!

Note: It also appears that WinFBE is setting a *default* hot-key mapping, and then *not* unsetting that mapping before setting the user-specified key mapping. So while WinFBE is running, all of its *default* mappings *AND* user-override mappings are locked up and unavailable to other applications.

Thanks,
CBruce

Good point. I will add an option to not allow a particular hotkey to be active.

Hi Bruce,

You can try the EXE's in the following download. I have added the ability to set each keyboard shortcut to "Disabled" so that they are not added to the list of keyboard accelerators thereby allowing you to use the keyboard shortcut for your own purposes. Let me know if it does not work as you expect it should.
