Feature Request: Arrow keys to select tools

jtico shared this question 10 years ago


Here is the idea:

If EV is in focus and none object is selected, you could use the arrow keys to chose between tools. Left and right arrow keys to move through the row of tools in the toolbar. Up and down keys to move on a column of tools. If you click on the EV window the tool highlighted is the actual tool. :)

Not sure how well the +1 feature is actually noticed by peape who read posts so I add my support in a post as well.

In principle all features should be accessible from keyboard input for those who cannot use pointing devices.

Edit: With a tool selected, TAB moves through tools and SPACE selects it but I cannot see how to go down into the tool menu. Ctrl-TAB just toggles the Algebra View header bold/not bold.
