Is there a way of binding "Export" to a shortcut?

Post by psygo »

I'm right now heavily reliant on exporting my diagrams as EPSs, and later including them into my LaTeX document. However, at least on a Mac, this is very tedious since there's no shortcut to the export top menu item.

I've also tried `fn + control + F2` and then using the arrow keys, but, after clicking on the Export top menu item, nothing happens, no panel is open, it only works if I click it. Could this be a bug? Or just something unexpected?

Hi,

GOWrite does not contain means to assign new shortcuts (easily).

I think you may be seeing also a bug in java: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8273310

If you want to experiment:
Open GOWrite.app/Contents/Java/gowrite.jar (inside the gowrite app) as a ZIP file, and modify Accelerator-MacOsX.properties file (/gowrite/text/Accelerator-MacOsX.properties). Adding a line, for example "ACTION_EXPORT=shift meta X" could work for you.

I will include this in the next release, but that may take quite a long time.
