Custom keybindings

There are two ways to add custom keybindings:
  1. In the "Edit" tab in the main window lower tabs, you can right-click a button and select "Add keybinding". The program will then ask you to press a key combination.

  2. Not all functions are included in the "Edit" tab though. Another way to add custom keybindings is to edit a text file.

    After changing this file, either restart Radium or select "Reload keyboard configuration" from the Help menu.

Examples (this is all you need to know to get started)

  1. Change "Left Ctrl + z" to open the "about window":
    Z CTRL_L : ra.openAboutWindow

    A key binding normally starts with the name of a key (e.g. "Z"), followed by 0 or more qualifiers (e.g. "CTRL_L").

  2. If a key binding lacks a key, it will use the key from the last defined keybinding that had a key. Example:

    F12          : ra.showMixerHelpWindow
         CTRL_R  : ra.showKeybindingHelpWindow
         SHIFT_R : ra.showFXHelpWindow

  3. For more examples, look at the default keybindings.conf file, and look at protos.conf for a complete list of available functions.
