#255 assigned defect

Ctrl for hotkeys should be disabled on OS X

Reported by: schwern Owned by: tome
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: editor Version: 0.27
Keywords: osx mac hotkeys Cc:


Using Padre on OS X the normal Mac hotkeys work using the command/apple/pinwheel key as the modifier. Command-c copies, command-v pastes, etc. This is good. Trouble is control works, too. Control-v pastes, control-c copies, etc. This is un-Mac-like, the redundancy will only produce confusion and block using control for something else. Control should be disabled and only command used.

It also gets in the way of using Emacs movement keys, which is how I noticed it trying to page down with control-v.

Wx Version: 0.89 wxWidgets 2.8.9

This is perl, v5.10.0 built for darwin-thread-multi-2level

  • Priority changed from minor to major
  • Type changed from enhancement to defect

This issue is still present in 0.56

In addition, i would like to add that some of the 'ALT'+<some-key> keyboard shortcuts collide with my german keyboard layout, where

ALT-N is ~
ALT-L is @

I think this issue is related to #411 (configurable key bindings).

@kaib: This happens only whan using the right ALT-key, but this is no Padre problem, it's typical for all apps.

Solution: Use the left ALT key.
This isn't related to the original bug.

@Sewi: no, there's no difference between the left and right ALT key in v0.56. Maybe it's because i use a Macbook, which has a different keyboard layout? I'll check it again with the current version, but this will take a few days.
