Re: HUD start proposal (joining: Alt (tap) + Alt (Press)


Hi Ryan/Paul.

You're right Ryan. We are mixing two <> concepts/ideas: a) What should appear when HUD is triggered; b) the shortcut to it. For b) I don't have any special keypress preference, Paul (Cap lock could be problematic in some cases). Both Alt-left, Alt-right are good options. For a) I'm proposing to join both HUD shortcuts in one (keeping the current HUD behaviour:).
From this idea we can even think how to move on in the future:
    - typing "f" - current behaviour
    - typing "Alt + "f": triggers File (submenu)
(its a starting point )

I feel like a dummy, since I do not understand what you are talking about, but do you mean an option for displaying global menu with one key, and another key for HUD? If this is what you mean, then it would definitely look less-cluttered. If this is not what you mean, could you please explain it to me? Sorry if I have misunderstood you. Thanks!

I don't like this idea because it just looks cluttered up.
Recently SABDFL posted a suggestion about making the HUD keypress
configurable between Alt, Alt-Gr, and Caps-Lock:


Carlos, Ryan: What do you think about the Caps-Lock option?  Would
that be less cluttered?
