Keaboard shift state and GUI buttons

Post by *browny » 2019-01-06, 08:52 UTC

1. In MS DOS times some programs could change button texts in the bottom bar row (F3 - F8) when Alt, Ctrl or Shift button(s) were pressed. Norton Commander v3.0, for one.
Maybe that was already suggested, and considered unnecessary for experienced users.

2. Sometimes it might be convenient to do file operations with a mouse, and then keyboard state could be taken into account for GUI buttons.
For example, the standard horizontal bar has "Invert selection" button. It duplicates the function of a Grey* key. Shift+Grey* inverts selection with subdirectories, but Shift+click "Invert selection" now is still unmodified "Invert selection" action.
The bottom bar buttons that duplicate funcion keys, could be affected too.

browny,
Too many translations and users can remap hotkeys. Even now they are not accurate when users remap e.g. F6. The names of all TC internal commands would need to be translated.
