List of all assigned keyboard shortcuts



  • I’m sure this or similar questions have been asked before. I just can’t find any conclusive answer.
    Is there a way to get the WHOLE list of currently assigned keyboard shortcuts in a sorted and searchable manner?
    Even an API or a plugin for it would do. Even having all the assignments in an editor window would do. If I could iterate through it in a python code snippet would work.
    The “Shortcut mapper” is of no use. Can’t find anything there. And the lists published on the web are not reflecting my own setup.
    Are the mappings found somewhere in on /several config files one could parse?
    Surely there must be an answer for such a simple question.



  • I had some ideas about this at one point, so I made some notes about it.

    Here was the approach I had in mind; this is an after-the-fact design (no Notepad++ run-time awareness):

    Get needed files:

    Obtain the N++ source code and extract the following files:
    menuCmdID.h
    keys.h
    Parameters.cpp

    Use the following files from your N++ install, after you’ve configured shortcuts to your individual liking:
    shortcuts.xml (which is likely customized somewhat by you, using Shortcut Mapper, and in other ways)
    english.xml (or whatever your language of choice is)

    open menuCmdID.h
    get lines that look like this:
    #define IDM_SEARCH_VOLATILE_FINDNEXT (IDM_SEARCH + 14)
    after noting that:
    #define IDM 40000
    #define IDM_SEARCH (IDM + 3000)
    tie a number to an IDM_* string
    example:
    43014 IDM_SEARCH_VOLATILE_FINDNEXT

    open parameters.cpp
    get lines that look like this:
    {VK_F3, IDM_SEARCH_VOLATILE_FINDNEXT, true, true, false, NULL},
    tie a keycombo to an IDM_ tag
    example:
    tie “ctrl+alt+F3” to “IDM_SEARCH_VOLATILE_FINDNEXT”
    note: true,true,false in the above example corresponds to ctrl->yes, alt->yes, shift->no

    open english.xml
    get lines that look like this:
    <Item id=“43014” name=“Find (Volatile) Next”/>
    tie a number to a description
    example:
    43014 Find (Volatile) Next

    open keys.h
    get lines that look like this:
    #define VK_N 0x4E
    tie a (base) key to the number
    example:
    78 0x4E N

    at this point you would have enough information (once you put it all together) to dump out the DEFAULT key-mapping, like so:

    43014 Ctrl+Alt+F3 : Find (Volatile) Next

    open shortcuts.xml
    get lines that look like this:
    <Shortcut id=“43014” Ctrl=“yes” Alt=“yes” Shift=“no” Key=“78” />
    note: if a default shortcut isn’t change by the user, no entry will be found here for an id!
    tie keycombo to the id
    example:
    43014 Ctrl+Alt+N

    now you can dump out the key-mappings with overrides in place (I set my find-volatile-next to ctrl+alt+N):

    43014 Ctrl+Alt+N : Find (Volatile) Next

    so this is a rather simplistic(!) view of the situation, because this does not take into account:
    scintilla key mappings
    macro menu key mappings
    run menu key mappings
    plugin key mappings (very difficult indeed)
    …anything else I’ve forgotten/overlooked…

    In conclusion, this simple question does not have a simple answer. :)
    This is a difficult task, indeed!
    (unless I have missed something…always a possibility…)



  • Try my nightly build of my shortcut branch
    https://ci.appveyor.com/project/cmeriaux/notepad-plus-plus/build/1.0.173/job/xqlj863c7703u23a/artifacts

    I added a function that export default shortcuts in a XML with many comments.
    That may almost suits your needs.



  • I believe the O.P wants the current hotkey settings, which are the only ones that matter. :-)



  • actually, the created function export the complete current shortcut config.

  • Hello, Scott and All,

    Scott, starting from your very interesting post, about a way to gather all the default N++ shortcuts, from different N++ source files, I tried, these past days, to go on, building an ( almost ! ) exhaustive table of all the commands ( mainly, Notepad++ and Scintilla ones )

    This list, based on the last N++ v7.2 version, shows all the commands, with their existing default shortcuts, or without any default shortcut
    ( VK_NULL ) and give a way to, systematically, associate a shortcut to a command, by :

    • Using, mainly, the Shortcut Mapper program

    • Creating a macro , with an associated shortcut, when the specific wanted command is NOT available in the Shortcut Mapper


    This list is quite long : about 700 lines ! So here is, below, the very beginning and the very end of this table, ONLY !

    So, Scott, and concerned people, if you don’t mind giving me an e-mail address, I’ll send you this file, as an attached piece ! And, please, just tell me if this file seems valuable and useful to you !

    Later, if of some interest, this file ( 177 Kb ) could be stored on Net :-) I promised you that I’ll update this file, each time a new release comes out, although I quite sure it won’t change very often !

    Ahhhhhhh ! As a post cannot be longer than 16384 characters, just go on reading my 3 following posts :-))

  • Hi, Scott and All,

    So, continuation of my previous post !

    NOTES :

    • I named this table Synthesis.cpp. By that means, in that C++ Source file, the MenuId and ScintillaID numbers, as well the the keys numbers, coloured in orange, are easy to see !

    • The first column give the different ways to associate a shortcut, to each command, in the shortcut Mapper :

      • The notations xx and // refer to commands that produce no result or that are not used !

      • The notations RU, PL and SC refer to usual Run, Plugins or Scintilla commands

      • The notation MA refer to commands which can be run, via a Macro, exclusively, with an associated shortcut

      • When, for a specific line, the Type column is EMPTY, this means that a shortcut can be associated to that command, either :

        • by using the Shortcut Mapper

        • by creating a Macro and its associated shortcut

    In the second table, below, for the example shortcut, associated to the Alt + F12 keys, you’ll find, depending on the Type notation, the correct line(s) to add, in the noticed Shortcut.xml node :

    *------*-----------------------*----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------*

    Refer, also, to the link below :

    http://docs.notepad-plus-plus.org/index.php/Editing_Configuration_Files#.3CMacros.3E

    • The second column shows the N++ menu, where each command belongs

    • The third column displays, when possible, the N++ command name, of each command, given in the same ORDER than they appear in N++ menus

    • The fourth column contains the five digits NumID of each Notepad++ command or the four digits SciID of each Scintilla command

    • The four following columns give the description of the default shortcut of each command, in Notepad++, v7.2

    • The two following columns display the hexadecimal and decimal forms of the Windows VK_ value, of the key, used in each shortcut, or the hex 0x00 value for the VK_NULL key. Note that the decimal value is the scan-code, used by the Key tag, in the shortcuts.xml file

    Refer, also, to the two links below :

    https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/dd375731(v=vs.85).aspx

    http://ascii-table.com/keyboards.php

    Then, the remaining columns refer to a table, closed to the previous one, relative to the Shortcut Mapper, itself :

    • The 11th column notices, in which tab of the Shortcut Mapper, each command is indicated

    • The 12th column gives the ORDER number of each command, indicated in the Shortcut Mapper

    • The 13 column shows, when possible, the Scintilla name of each command

    • The 14th and last column, just displays possible notes, about each command, if any

    Remark : As this table is ordered, according to the occurring of commands in N++ menus, this same list, in the Shortcut Mapper table, may differ, in few locations, from the real list of the N++ Shortcut Mapper ( See, for instance, the set of the 8 Sort commands ! )

  • Hi, Scott and All,

    Final post !

    BTW, if, from that 700 lines list, you want to extract, in one go, the 191 default shortcuts, used in N++ v7.2, just perform the following S/R, in Regular expression mode, that deletes any line which does not have a VK name, ( different from VK_NULL ), inside the 8th column !

    SEARCH (?-s)^(?=.{108}(VK_NULL |[ -])).+\R

    REPLACE EMPTY

    So, from that narrowed list and/or from the complete one, you should easily update the list of all your own shortcuts, shouldn’t you ?

    Best Regards

    guy038



  • Hi @guy038
    I would really like to see your list.
    Can I get that list?
    Thanks in advance
    my email: macgyver204@gmail.com



  • Hi, Macgryver Johnson and Scott,

    I sent you my Synthesis.cpp file, few minutes ago, by e-mail to both of you

    Cheers

  • https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B86nuTd5nMTKaENHcmliUC1kdnc/edit?usp=sharing

    This comes from the Notepad++ sites homepage. Scroll down to the bottom it is the last option. Hope it helps…Peace…



  • Hi,
    I know these posts are pretty old, but I hope I can still get the list.
    Would you please send it to my email ivy.noname@web.de
    Thanks a lot



  • Hello, @IvyNo,

    These next days, I’ll try to update the old list of Notepad++ and Scintilla commands, which I talk about in my first post of this thread, above. So, from the v7.2 version you’ll get the last v7.7 version of this file.

    Remember that this file is, simply, a personal synthesis of some data from the 3 files Parameters.cpp, keys.h and menuCmdID.h, normally located in folder notepad-plus-plus-7.7\PowerEditor\src of the archive notepad-plus-plus-7.7.zip

    So, please, let me a couple of days to get it right and I’ll send you this Synthesis.cpp file, as well as the default complete list of N++ v7.7 shortcuts, bye-mail ;-))

    Best Regards,

    guy038



  • Hi Guy038,
    Thanks a lot for your fast answer.
    There is no hurry, take your time, I am happy to get the list, no matter when :-)
    Kind regards



  • Hi, @IvyNo,

    Sorry for the long delay :-( First, I spent a week on vacation for a family celebration ( at the seaside !), then I helped a friend of my wife’s for computer problems and I had to prepare for my daughter’s future move, next Saturday ! And, of course, I delved into the source files of Notapad+++ 7.7.0 !

    I sent you a mail, some minutes ago, with 6 attached files :

    • Synthesis.cpp, which recapitulates all Notepad++ 7.7.0 internal commands and corresponding Scintilla messages

    • SCI_list.cpp, which contains all messages and values of the ...\Scintilla\include\Scintilla.h file

    • Shortcuts_list.cpp, which lists all default shortcuts of Notepad++ 7.7.0

    and, for information :

    • Define_list.cpp, which recapitulates all #define statements, referring to a numeric or string value, found in all the source files

    • Enum_List.cpp, which contains all enumerations from the ...\Scintilla\include\Scintilla.iface file

    • Keys_US.cpp, which lists all the scan codes of a traditional US keyboard

    Note :

    • These .cpp files could have been renamed as simple .txt files. But, by doing so, we just take advantage of the highlighting of numerical values and strings and of the folding, due to the pair { and } :-))

    I just hope that you’ll find useful some part of all that stuff, anyway !

    Best Regards,

    guy038



  • Hi @guy038
    I have been looking for a similar table for a long time. Can I see the results of your labors? jang.spb@gmail.com



  • If I could iterate through it in a python code snippet would work

    Just in case some else has the same requirement

  • @Ekopalypse

    Interesting approach to get some of the shortcuts. :)



  • @Alan-Kilborn

    Why some? What did I miss?
