Yeah… I guess a key on your left hand make most sense as most ppl use right hand on the mouse. And as this is a vsti you mostly would use the mouse just after opening it. I dont have anything on the key between shift and Z. ( I guess thats between shift and Y on german keyboards?). If there is a standard to have a key there in the first place.
Ok… to finnish up my monologue on hotkey-requests here.
If you (taktik) for some reason get into a adding-hotkey-mode, I would also really much have a few more hotkeys in the sample editor:
How about making Space play selection?
I also miss ‘zoom to selection’ and ‘view whole sample’.
You could use one of the earlier suggested keys for those two.
For instance < to zoom to selection. and ctrl+< to view whole sample.
Doubleclicks in dropdown lists are not possible, because the first click closes the list. Ok, we could implement some nifty delay that waits for the second click, and closes then the list with a delay or does the doubleclick, but this would be more annoying than helpfull if you just want to close the box.
I know that you all want to make this release perfect (same is true for me), but if we continue like this, we will never have a release. Thats why I moved this topic out of the bugreports forum.
This should not mean, that we will neglect all reports from now on, nor that I want to stop people from reporting things that they dont like, but that we should concentrate on the important things. Hope you understand this.
Back to your suggestion: You want to open the editor also when the upper frame is hidden, right? What about adding a button next to the drop-down list which does this ?
Actually, I didn’t want to be able to doubleclick the opened dropdown list; maybe the picture was misleading: being able to doubleclick the selected item when dropdown list is closed would be just great, if possible.
about the reasong for the topic moving:
so this was as I expected, this is no problem for me
