In doing some keyboard customization, I’ve changed some default key assignments, and also cleared some and leave them unassigned. Things are working more or less as I want them to, but there is one odd thing I’m hoping might be explained.
I removed the shortcut assignments from the Ctrl+Left and the Ctrl+Right key combinations. By default these are assigned to those, Move Item Left and Right in the Binder, and those commands have been reassigned to other key combinations and are working.
Even though those keys are no longer assigned to any commands, I’m finding that they are still doing something when used in the Binder. But I can’t figure out what exactly.
Sometimes they are only duplicating the unmodified Left and Right arrows and are simply collapsing and expanding folders and file stacks. Other times, it’s not clear what exactly they’re doing, but it seems related to the Collapse to Current Level and the Expand All commands, but not quite. And those commands are already assigned to other keys. Sometimes they need to be pressed twice before they do anything. Sometimes they seem to alter what the unmodified Up and Down arrow keys do when they are pressed immediately following. It’s odd.
I know it can be inconvenient to play around with key assignments, but if someone could give me an idea of what these keys are doing after their default commands have been removed and reassigned, I’d very much appreciate it.
The behavior can be seen by simply restoring the Scrivener default, and then clearing the Ctrl+Left and Ctrl+Right shortcuts.
