Change hide/show shortcut

Post by kudos » Tue Mar 10, 2009 5:09 pm

I want a different keyboard shortcut to hide/show Avant and Orca.

Why? Because the default for both is CTRL+~ and is systemwide.
If I start Orca then Avant, the shortcut only works for Avant.
If I start Avant then Orca, the shortcut only works for Orca.
Therefore Windows internally stores a simple list which is overwritten.

Now if I start Orca, hide it, then start Avant, I cannot unhide Orca (and vice-versa).
I can always start Orca from the start menu - but that defeats the keyboard shortcut purpose.

It would be great the show/hide keyboard shortcut was user assignable - it would overcome this bug too.

Try the HotkeyP, small, free tool, I can't live without it. :thumbup:

Avant + Orca should work, you can assign a different keyboard shortcuts for each, but multiple Orca instances don't work good because of the same name.

Check the Help for more info - select or type the Command and then click the Help button for the quick help to the current command.

BTW I support your request too.

Thanks, I used a workaround/hack that I created, but I wanted to make the developer aware of the problem/request - especially the request to make it user-assignable.
