How long before customizable key commands???

I was working in Synfire today and I thought 'if I have to reach for that mouse one more time I'm going to smash my computer.'

 

Seriously, where can we get a comprehensive list for all key commands, especially transport/navigation controls?  Half of the ones like zooming in and out don't seem to work at all on my Win 7 x64 machine. 

 

Thanks <rant off>

This is high on the development agenda. The reason for the delay is we're facing problems with handling the many international keyboard layouts ( "[” and ”]” are "ü" and "ä" on a Germany keyboard, for example). This requires a lot of code to be rewritten to use hardware scan codes.

Most keyboard shortcuts are listed in the menus. Others, like the arrow keys or the delete key, are pretty self-explanatory, although it seems many users do not yet use them.

A key does only work after the desired user interface widget got input focus, that is, you need to click on it before it can receive keyboard commands. Only a few commands are really global (transport, close window, etc).

Thanks, Andre, and I wanted to say thanks for the Youtube video as well.

 

Just so I'm understanding... there isn't a quick key list anywhere for Synfire?

This is a developer's nightmare, but still high on the list. It will not come before the set of commands will have settled a bit. Many commands are about to change with the next couple updates.
