How to use "Set comment" dialog with keyboard only ?

Post by jo2h2 » Fri Apr 03, 2015 2:23 am

Hi,

is there a way to use "Set comment" dialog with keyboard only ?

When adding a comment to "descript.ion" - Enter creates a new line, Tab enters a tab, Alt-W for write is not implemented, so - beside 'ESC' - there is no way to escape this comment field to 'Write' the comment.

Is there an alternative ? I hate to search the mouse only to click on 'Write' :-)

Thanks and best wishes,
Jo ...

P.S. I am using Windows 8.1

Hi Pierre,

I can understand that you need Enter and Tab - what about "Alt-Enter" (to close the dialog with write - like 'Esc' closing the dialog without saving – or "Alt-W" for Write (and close) ?

Thanks :)

Best wishes,
Jo ...

you only need a shortcut to save/close the dialog?

Yes, if somehow possible I'd like to use XnView "mouse-free" / keyboard only - especially when viewing pictures, searching the mouse only to press the "Write" button is not ideal :-)

Alt-W for "Write" - or Alt-Enter - or "F2" - or whatever :-)

Thanks Pierre !
