Indicate an action has taken place when using mouse shortcuts

#1 Post by robsc » 22.05.2024, 18:54

Mouse shortcuts - Right-click context menu.

Can you add an indicator of an action having taken place? I have an area of the filename set to copy the path and another to copy the name, etc. I forget which action just took place so it would be nice if a tool tip would pop up indicating what you've done. That would get it into your memory and be redundant after a while, so you might have an option to turn it off as well. I sometimes find myself right-clicking several times to bring up the right-click context menu because I forget what settings I have made.

Thanks

I had the same problem, tooltip as option could be a solution.

Workaround:
It's possible to add to to status bar, as hint, for any item, in my case I tested it:
LBM:focus-open-empty, MMB:select-viewer-editor, RMB:rename-copyname, contextmenu
LMB, MMB, RMB is left/middle/right mouse button, 1st, 2nd, 3rd action is icon-name-extension.

BTW It's good to use a system to shortcuts, so you can remember it easier, I used "open in viewer" and "open in editor" for MMB, "rename" and "copy name" to RMB, just find similar actions you're using.

Alternatively you can add that text to any favorite tools button.

Yes, that would work. Thank you for the suggestion.
