Unable to do keybindings containing CTRL (MacOS X)

Postby wuffe » Sat Apr 26, 2008 12:39 pm

Hi,

I'm just testing the new Editra release 0.3.0 - and it works really nice (Thx)

I'm unable to do keybindings containing CTRL (on MacOS X)
The available modifier keys are shift alt and cmd - no ctrl ???

I don't know if it is a MacOS only problem - I have no Windows/linux here right now.

Hello,

Yes this is a Mac only issue right now. Its mostly a limitation in the wxpython toolkit, when passing menu shortcuts it automatically translates Ctrl -> Cmd (Apple key). I haven't yet found a way to allow it to bind the actual Ctrl key as an accelerator.

wxpython v2.9 allows to bind Mac's Ctrl key. Read more at http://wxpython.org/MigrationGuide.html ... celerators

Would this enhancement be included in next Editra release?

Could be if someone wants to write and test a patch for it ;)

There are however several issues with running on wxPython 2.9 right now, last I checked the Mac port was still less than stable.

Changes in the StyledTextCtrl have also created several issues in Editra mostly related to the VIM emulation feature that need resolving which has stalled some of the momentum towards doing releases with 2.9 yet unfortunatly.

I am ready to test if someone else will code it :)

Thanks for explanation, Cody. It seems, that need to find someone who can fix wxPython too :) Be waiting for bugfixes of wxPython.
