#7142 confirmed New Feature

Allow users to create their own keyboard shortcuts for context menu items

Reported by: James Cunningham Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: UI : Context Menu Version: 3.0
Keywords: IBM Cc: Damian, Teresa Monahan, Satya Minnekanti


There are 3 parts to this new feature request.

1. Users should be allowed to create their own keyboard shortcuts for items that appear in the context menu. For example, there is already a keyboard shortcut for opening the link dialog (CTRL + L). Users should be allowed to create their own custom keyboard shortcuts for opening other dialogs and carrying out other functionality that is currently handled in the context menu.

2. Keyboard shortcuts should be displayed in the context menu next to the appropriate context menu item so that it is clear to the user that a shortcut exists. i.e.for each context menu item there should be:

  1. an icon
  2. the context menu item text
  3. the keyboard shortcut text

An example of this structure on the Paste context menu item would be:

  1. Clipboard icon
  2. "Paste"
  3. CTRL + V

3. Users should be able to manage how the items in the context menu are displayed. Using the above example a user may want the clipboard icon aligned left, the "Paste" text aligned centre and "CTRL + V" aligned right.

Sounds like a big change but the idea is in my opinion very interesting.

Perhaps best to close this feature request - sounds way too high impact, and too much work for value created.
