Using Keymap Editor

The Keymap Editor dialog displays any modifications made to the current keymap. Using the editor you can define additional key mappings, open saved keymap files and create new keymap files.

Figure : Customizing the keymap

The icons at the top of the Keymap Editor dialog allow you to start a new keymap file from scratch, to open an already defined keymap file, or to save the current keymap modification into a keymap file:

  • New

    Click New to start creating a new keymap file. This will clear all the current keymap modifications.

  • Open

    Click Open to load an already defined keymap file for further modification. The Open dialog will appear, allowing you to locate the desired keymap file.

  • Save

    Click Save to save the current keymap modifications to the currently open keymap file. If no keymap file has been loaded, the Save As dialog will open, allowing you to specify the file name for a new keymap file.

  • Save As

    Click Save As to save the current keymap modifications into a different keymap file. The Save As dialog will open, allowing you to specify the file name for a new keymap file.

The large area in the center of the Keymap Editor dialog displays the defined keymap modifications. The Key column on the left displays the key combination whose function has been modified and the Function column displays the effect that pressing this particular key combination will have.

The buttons at the bottom of the Keymap Editor dialog allow you to modify the keymap settings of the current keymap file:

  • Add

    Click Add to add a new keymap modification. A small Keymap Editor dialog appears. Place the cursor in the Shortcut Key text box and press a key combination on the keyboard to select which key binding you want to modify. Select the desired function for that key combination from the Function drop-down menu.

  • Edit

    Select an already defined keymap and click Edit to modify it.

  • Remove

    Select an already defined keymap and click Remove to delete the selected modification.

  • Exit

    Click Exit to close the Keymap Editor dialog. If you did not save all your keymap modifications, a Confirm dialog opens, asking if you want to save the changes you made or cancel the exit operation.
