Request shortcut to open/close window : Tag, Properties, Tray, ....


Recommended Posts

Hi,

It would be nice (for keyboard users)  to have shortcut to open/close windows like Tag, Properties, Tray.....

Something like Shift or Control + number (0..9) or F1..F12. (or anything else)

Regards

I strongly agree with Alain, Daminion should support more keyboard shortcuts!

Furthermore, the layout of the menu bar with the underlined W suggests, you could open the Windows-submenu by pressing Alt-W (as in many other programs), but unfortunately it does not work (at least for me on Windows 10).

However, what does work (only in some other cases, but not to open a new window/panel 😞 ) is:

  • right click on a thumbnail opens the context menu
  • select an option by keying the underlined letter
  • select the next option by keying the underlined letter of a submenu

For example, the sequence right click, A, W performs "Write Tags to File" (see my screenshot). I use this heavily also in combination with Open With and custom assigned external tools.

There is no underlining.

On my client for Home Server 6.4 (2120) the initial letters in the menu are still underlined, but don't work as a shortcut, as I said above. The context menu also shows underlined titles,which still work in Build 2120. In fact, my screenshot in the previous post above was made with Build 2120.

I correct myself, the short cut for the main menu does work, but it is a little tricky:

  1. Press the Alt-key and release it
  2. Wait until the File is highlighted

  3. Now, you can press W (or E, V, C, I or H) and you see the submenu:

  4. When you press the T key now, the Option Tags is highlighted:

  5. If you press Enter now, the Tags panel opens (or closes as in my example, when it is already open)
  6. Instead, if you press T a second time, Tags #2 (Folders) opens

If this faster or more convenient, than clicking the menu with mouse? I doubt it. After all, it is a clumsy user interface.
