Scribus keyboard shortcuts
- Should be similar to shortcuts used in Inkscape / the Gimp
- There are many actions for which it's not possible to assign a shortcut in Scribus, eg:
|Increase kerning / tracking|
|Decrease kerning / tracking|
Replacement shortcut sets
Scribus 1.3 has the ability to load and save custom shortcut sets in xml files, so if someone's used to eg. Quark they can just load a Quark-like shortcut set. Hopefully this should mitigate the initial disorientation involved in switching to a new DTP prog.
I've put a couple of shortcuts xml files here to start the bowl rolling.
- The default Scribus shortcuts should probably be included in the other keysets unless those shortcuts are assigned to something else
- Real world testing in 1.3 to see what I've messed up
- Identify important functions for which it's not currently possible to assign shortcuts in Scribus, eg. Edit text, Zoom in / out
- More shortcut sets, eg. Indesign, MS Publisher, Serif PagePlus, Gimp, Inkscape (Actually Scribus should probably aim to have common shortcuts with Gimp / Inkscape as a default).
Quark 5 shortcuts are listed in this pdf. Anyone fancy hacking them out or retyping them all? :-)
How about user-definable mouse shortcuts, eg. triple-click text selects paragraph like in Word for example?
- Cbradney tells me this is difficult / unlikely, but the 1.3 roadmap includes work on mouse text selection
