Animation: change Slider Popup menu hotkeys #107866

Merged
Christoph Lendenfeld merged 3 commits from ChrisLend/blender:key_menuhotkeys into blender-v3.6-release 2023-05-26 09:03:16 +02:00

Since the change in #106113 the Slider menu which was called with the D hotkey was no longer in any menu.
This made it really hard to discover.

Since there is now more than 1 menu popup, it needs more than 1 hotkey.
The idea is that the ALT key is used in combination with keys that are easy to reach with the left hand.
Right now it is ALT+S and ALT+D but if needed in the future it can be extended to f, w and e

With the actual menus called, the hotkey hint appears again

I am wondering if the hotkey for the smooth menu is even needed. I don't see this being used often

The code LGTM, and I think also conceptually this is a better way to go than the hidden 'D' hotkey.

hmmm… Why Alt+D instead Alt+B despite the second is free?

it was D before and ALT+D is quite a bit easier to reach than ALT+B
