Custom keyboard shortcuts don't work

Post by smallwood13 »

Hello, I'm trying to set up custom keyboard shortcuts, but they don't work. For example I setup "f" for full screen and "Space" for Next file, but nothing happened. Default shortcuts continue working (F11 for full screen), but not new ones.

The shortcuts are divided by modes: Browser mode and View mode. From what I can see, you have specified shortcuts for Browser mode, i.e. these shortcuts will work in browser mode, only. Is this perhaps the problem?

Wouldn't it be better if the Interface > Shortcuts design was similar to that for Interface > Toolbar, if that is possible?

+1 Yes, atm definining a shortcut for the wrong mode can happen very easily, which is no good.

Two years have passed, and the problem still remains. If you assign one button to a function, it DOES NOT WORK. If you assign a combination then WORKS. But I need exactly one button.

Any. For example, from the beginning I wanted to assign F3 to open the batch conversion dialog. Then to check that it really does not work, I changed the rename function from F2 to F3 and it did not work until I returned F2 by default.

F3/F4 are assigned to OpenWith, F12 About, F2 rename, F7 new folder, F5 refresh, F11 fullscreen and can't be changed

Why, then, is there a function to change these hot keys if you cannot change them ? Don't you think this is stupid ?
Those. judging by your answer, I can not assign anything to F3 ?

I'm wrong, you can change them. Only F3/F4 can't be changed

Okay, this is still strange. But then I managed to install batch processing on F6.
