Hello,

I am using the tool under Linux, Build 128 (2021-11-01 17:46), jdk-11.0.10+9

It seems that the F9 key is hardcoded to action "Execute Selected". However, the "Configure shortcuts" screen shows another shortcut:

In my config Win+F9 is reserved globally by another app, and so it really annoys me. The tool triggers execution of everything on the current tab.

As a workaround, I was trying to assing the "F9" to any other action, like "About...". It does not work. There is an exception in the log:

java.lang.NullPointerException
at workbench.gui.settings.ShortcutEditor.findKey(ShortcutEditor.java:517)
at workbench.gui.settings.ShortcutEditor.assignKey(ShortcutEditor.java:438)
at workbench.gui.settings.ShortcutEditor.actionPerformed(ShortcutEditor.java:330)

Any ideas?

Regards,
Vitaly

Hi,

yes, you are right, the dialog should also display and allow the configuration of the alternate key.

Currently there is no way to remove this mapping for F9 (unless you want to compile your own version).

Thomas

Hi Thomas,

Thanks for your response.
Are there any other hardcoded hotkeys? The User's Manual has no infromation regarding that.

Regards,
Vitaly
