BUG?: key bindings wrong in international keyboards

Postby guillermooo on Sat Sep 19, 2009 8:58 am

In my Spanish keyboard layout (German keyboard), the console opens only by pressing CTRL + ñ (CTRL + ö).

In order to get ~, you must press CTRL + ALT (or Alt Gr) + 4, so the console isn't accessible through the standard key binding.

Is this intended behaviour?

One of the first things I did when starting with Sublime Text was editing User/Default.sublime-keymap and inserting
Code: Select all
<binding key="f12"       command="showPanel console"/>
<binding key="shift+f12" command="showPanel output nofocus"/>

Thats what I did with all keys hard to type on a german keyboard.

I'm open to suggestions here about what could be done better - is the only option to restrict the default key bindings to keys available on every flavour of keyboard layout?

To me it's unnecessary.

I don't want to use editors not allowing to configure the key bindings. Some key bindings I use more than 20 years - since the "good old days" of Brief. So I don't care about default settings and always configure the editor for my fingers.

Yes, it's mostly a documentation problem. I don't think this deserves too much thought beyond that.
