That's right, I committed some more patches earlier this week (which
sf.net's mailing list seemingly did didn't deliver).
There are now the options for adobe-illustrator-cs.xml and
macromedia-freehand-mx.xml in the inkscape share/keys/ folder.
It would be really great to have UI in our preferences to select a
different keyboard shortcuts preference. This would be a nice low
hanging fruit task. Has anyone started this?
If no one has started this, there are a few of steps:
1.) create a preference for which keys xml file to use
2.) create ui for selecting the keys in our Inkscape Preferences...
3.) add necessary code to get keyboard shortcuts selection to work
4.) EXTRA CREDIT: for you UI to be able to create, edit and duplicate
current configs so that they may be user created...
Also, along these lines would be to create some simple UI for setting a
default language for Inkscape from the languages we have translated.
While ppl. may set this from the commandline, this would help our
translators and basic users. Basically, you would take the same approach
as step 1-3 above...for languages, we would have to make the change
active on restart...however, for keys, I'm not sure if we could make
them reset during an active Inkscape process. Does anyone know if this
It would actually be great to do both while Inkscape is running...
