Description (last modified by humdinger)

This is hrev31031.

You need a horizontally very large Keymap window to display all keys untruncated. I'd propose to use abbreviations where possible:

CAPS LOCK -> CAPS
NUM LOCK -> NUM
CONTROL -> CTRL
OPTION -> OPT
COMMAND -> COM
PAGE ↑ -> PG ↑
PAGE ↓ -> PG ↓

It'd also be a good idea to somehow get rid of the list views to the left. But where to put it...? Below the keymap? Dunno...

You're obviously not a friend of wide windows ;-)

The current state of Keymap is only a transitional one, anyway, even if the stuff on the right is in a good shape to stay (besides the dead key handling, that is).

Other than that, the plan is to merge the stuff from Keyboard, multiple keyboard support, and a keymap switcher, as well defining system wide shortcuts into one keyboard panel.

In any way, having defined abbreviations is a good idea.

Wide windows only where absolutely necessary. :)

OK, I'll wait for maybe abbreviated keys for a new screenshot for the user guide (no pressure!) and make the changes I've already done to that topic and leave it with that for the time being.

Thanks!
