  • Keyboard Shortcut key assignment missing for Open-Setup-Dialog

    My finger is starting to hurt from all the double clicking required to open the dialog window.

    I would like to assign the letter "D" to this information open setup dialog button, but can't find the Operation in User Interface > Keyboard Shortcut.




    Is there a way around this?

    ---

    It sure would be nice ...
    If someone can suggest this idea to the Edius UI programmer team - thank you.

      F7 only opens up the layout tool; I really would like to be able to open whatever filter tool is highlighted/selected.

            Seriously, you think a double click is too much effort?

              yes - a single click would be so much better

                Maybe the "macrogenerator tool" which has vocal commands would meet the ops needs. One could just utter the word "open".
                MG2 was a black Friday offer with free upgrade to mg3.

                  I have the Macrogenerator Tool. However, a first initial select click would still be required.

                  A button, or a single click, would help so much. Just today I must have double-clicked over 2000 times. Again, as I have stated before, a single click would really be most help, and I would imagine a very simple thing for the UI programmer to implement.

                    ehum. If have selected the effect you can press the enter key on your keyboard. There is a key which does what you want....and Open setup dialog is 1 (one click) So you have a button which is single click, you can press a key which is enter.

                    Sorry but I think EDIUS does what you want.

                      Changing to a single click to open a dialog window would deviate from standard windows conventions to open a new window, so I doubt this would be implemented as a default, as it would also force everyone to conform to your desired way to do things, and depending on the way the software is programmed, it may not be as easy as you think.

                      If there is more than one effect on a clip, (layouter is on everything and counts as an effect), you still would need to select what you want to open some how before an open button can be pressed. As stated by Anton and Steve, Enter is your open button, just single mouse click to select.

                      If you have macrogenerator, you can make custom macros, and you may be able to make one to open a specific dialog for you, without the need to mouse select an item first, but you would likely need to make a different macro to address each potential effect stack position and press the appropriate one for the window you want to open, or make up/down selection macros that you would need to use first. I have not gone looking into making one for your "problem" since it isn't a problem for me.

                        Hi:

                        I think the OP's suggestion is not bad, if it would be implemented according to his suggestion (second picture of OP).
                        // The implementation would be in someanalogy to the Sync-Lock column in the timeline! // "easy to learn" :-)

                        Regards kurt

                          Using MG works but is really not ideal and breaks the workflow.

                        Using Macrogenerator:
                        If for example you added PCC to a clip then the PCC effect would open up immediately so as to allow adjustments. If at a later time you need to revisit the clip and make further adjustments then you would need to highlight the effect and double click. Or you could make a single click to select the effect plus a second single click on the 3 little bars alongside the effect delete button.. This is easier than selecting the effect, releasing the mouse and then pressing enter. Maybe I am lucky by being left handed so do not need to let go mouse in order to hit enter.
                        Seems we are making hard work of this.

                        Edit: 'Enter' does not look possible using MacGen2. There is no idkey/instruction for 'enter' , so not such a good idea.

                          There may not be an idkey described as enter, but if you search for rnete you will see it id assigned to Play/Stop. There is also a sendkey function that may be able to do it but it would probably require an escape character first. Would need to do a little reading on the sendkey function.

                            I am so glad this one issue is finally getting some attention.

                            As kpot mentioned, I am suggesting a button within the filter that requires just a "single" click to open the tool.

                            Any double-click approach within Edius is not a clean solution. Double-click only works if it is a "clean" double-click. By a clean double-click I am saying it needs to have absolutely no x/y deviation between the two clicks --- or it is not considers a valid double-click. I am a fast clicker, and move the mouse around fast -- all-day-long AND Edius is not forgiving in this regard. I often have to go back and re-double-click in order to open the tool. So that would be 4 clicks just for the tool to open. What gives?

                            As a side note: I am also a website UI programmer ... I know a thing or two about UI, and programming!

                            This would take just an-hour for the UI person to implement, and would save us all on having to take work-breaks because our finger is staring to hurt.
