#497 new enhancement
Add keyboard shortcuts to v.digit (like pre-6-GRASS
|Reported by:||janh||Owned by:|
|Keywords:||vector digitizer, shortcuts||Cc:|
In the old, pre-6 v.digit, all commands were given by keyboard shortcuts. That took some exercise, but once you had it in your fingers (literally), you could digitize much faster than with the present click-button interface. I would guess it isn't all too difficult to add the old keyboard shortcuts to the system. Any idea from the developers whether this could be done? I still have GRASS 5.7 running for digitizing only. Beats every other package.

In r39911 are implemented sample hot-keys
- 'p' - digitize point
- 'l' - digitize line
Can you attached list of desired hot-keys?
hot-key - action

Attached the GRASS5.4 keys (somewhat simplified, zoom added) and the way they are ordered. I am not sure how much of this can be integrated in the new GUI, as it is a bit unlike the usual GUI hotkeys, but IMHO it is very systematic and clearer than any other digitizing software I have worked with. The most used keys are in the Zoom, Edit and Label menus, but the keys in the other menus are very useful too. Perhaps an extra menu could be created for some of these.

-- Hoping my suggestion is not too much off topic (dealing with a shortcut calling a temporary function) --
it is very convenient to be able to pan on-the-fly while digitizing large objects. It's already possible in a way by zooming/unzooming with the mouse wheel but not strictly panning. As an example, Qgis allows this action by depressing the space bar ; the interest being not to be forced to quit the editing tool for panning.

Vincent's suggestion could be implemented by way of the arrow keys, perhaps with shift-arrow for larger panning steps.

Can you attach list of key shortcuts used in pre-6 v.digit? Thanks.
