Problem with Hot Keys

Post by NormC » Tue Nov 13, 2012 11:39 am

Version 10 changes the function of F11 to toggle full screen mode and moves the former F11 function "Mark Task / Event Complete" to F12, and adds the functionality of having hot keys for some functions.

Since I have F12 already mapped as a "Windows Key" I have lost the ability to mark an item as completed without using the right mouse button..

Would you please consider reverting F11 to it's former function for consistency with previous releases, or make the current F11 and F12 functions as options on the Hot Key customization menu?

Hi NormC, welcome to the forums. The keyboard shortcuts you refer to are not global hotkeys as defined via Options -> Hotkeys. Global hotkeys work regardless of which window is active. VueMinder could be minimized and the hotkey would still work.

The F11 (Fullscreen Mode) and F12 (Completed) shortcuts require the VueMinder window to be active, so they don't make sense to be global hotkeys. Instead, these are regular menu commands and their keyboard shortcuts can be modified via the "Customize Menus and Keyboard" command on the Tools menu. Please see the "Customize Keyboard Shortcuts" section in the documentation linked below:
