I don't use any of those... except CTRL+G . The ones you are using are about getting more screen real-estate which I don't need on an old-fashioned square screen but will have to learn given the modern widescreen (rip-offs!) that are filtering down to me...my question to you would be wouldn't B be better than Ctrl+B?is it easier?
You can use O
without a mouse, but a mouse is really needed. That's ok. Keyboard shortcuts are an eclectic afterthought. I do get that.
If anybody cares, shutdown O
and unplug your mouse. Figure out how to start O
...and carry on from there.
I actually in real-life all the time use +,-, ctrl with these, arrow panning keys,F2,F4,F6,F8,T,and . D, sometimes. ESC is required with routes....
CTRL+G is the only
way to get those nice night colours (on the machines it works on)
F5 by mistake because it looks like F6 and is near the same place on the keyboard I want ..never bother with F7,ALT and arrows, never.
so, not many. But sometimes , I will just peck keys randomly as though I expected something to happen....as though it were possible...
....I'd be as interested in what shortcuts people WOULD use, if they were really easy to invoke and UNinvoke...ESC comes to mind as universal un-invoker and is already required
in routemaking as far as know, so everyone is using Keyboard shortcuts.
and there is
a kind of leakage from Windows OS...
for (windows) fun try this.
Right-click somewhere on the chart
...hide. H for hide. makes sense. where's the UNhide.darn, it.ESC? CTRL+Z? Goto chart bar,hover over hidden, use S but why would you? when the mouse is there already.
or n. N for navigate. oops don't want to do that. where's the ESC or ctrl+z?..so too bad M doesn't mean Mark at Cursor....
(and I wonder if TAB+M could leap about Mark to mark?)
CTRL+M needs a mouse to move the cursor anyways and the right-click menu works better because it locks the cursor in position when invoked....otherwise it's a three-handed operation because I use the right hand for the mouse and it's a stretch to use one hand for ctrl+m
again,(leakage) note that D taken from rightclick menu(Drop Mark) works easy peasey.
a very eclectic study....
