Usability request: Hotkey management

I love DisplayFusion and it does everything I want. I use it primarily to control Windows with the keyboard. However, I'm always frustrated when managing my hotkey configuration because that dialog box doesn't conform to the usual Windows keyboard conventions. The vast majority of Windows apps I see and use follow these conventions for the most part. I tend to do everything from the keyboard, which is also the reason I use DisplayFusion.

It would be nice if you could either...
  • Let me know if there is a configuration file or some reasonably understandable convention in the registry that I could use to get around that dialog box?
  • Fix the keyboard handling in that dialog box?
Some of the issues are:
  • No alt accelerators on the Add, Remove, and Edit buttons. I'm talking about the underlined letters in nearly all Windows programs that can be accessed with Alt-_. If I remember correctly, I think in Visual Studio, it was just a matter of making the button text something like "&Remove".
  • In the Edit Hotkey screen, Enter should press the OK key and Escape should press the Cancel key.
  • No alt accelerators for the text fields in the Edit Hotkey screen.

It's not a big deal, but it would be nice to see if you ever get time. I can see you have plenty more requests.

In any case, thank you for making DisplayFusion! It makes my days smoother.

Thank you for taking the time to create a forum account and provide some feedback. Issues like this are very important to me, as I always try to make sure DisplayFusion has a high level of "polish", and is easy for everyone to use. I will make sure that all the configuration windows have proper accelerator keys for the next release, and that the windows behave as expected when pressing the enter or esc keys. Thanks!

I love working on DisplayFusion, and I also love how involved the community is in helping to design future versions. Without excellent feedback and suggestions like this DisplayFusion wouldn't be as good as it is today.
