We use the keyboard top line (1234567890) for almost all our shortcuts but on the AZERTY french Keyboard they are mapped to &é"'(-è_ç
So we get this:
This is very hard to memorize. Would it be possible to have this display ?
Please can you confirm which pop-up we are talking about? Are you using Position Mapping?
sorry for this incomplete question.
We don't use Position mapping.
These are the normal Connect Shortcuts (see below)
In fact Microstation behaviour is perfectly correct, if you press the top line of the AZERTY french keyboard you get &, you need SHIFT to get 1.
Never mind, i think i will stick to the old fashion way: i will make a shortcuts Memo on a piece of paper and put it on my co-workers desk.
The characters used by these shortcuts are stored in C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Bentley\MicroStation\10.0.0\prefs\Personal.KeyboardShortcuts.xml.
You should be able to modify the characters used and save them you your own version of that file, then share it with your colleagues, either by just copying it around, or by putting it on your network and defining MS_KEYBOARDSHORTCUTS to point to the modified file.
These are the English language shortcuts, I'm wondering if the French version just does not match this?:
I realize our set up is weird because we have a french keyboard but we use the english version of Microstation CONNECT !!
(we always used english version of Bentley softwares.. much easier to get support and understand the forum :))
I tried to edit directly the XML file by changing the comment field, but it doesn't work.
</KeyboardShortcut> <KeyboardShortcut ScanCode="0x04" Comment="3"> (change comment from " to 3) <Label>Manipulate</Label> <KeyboardShortcuts> <KeyboardShortcut ScanCode="0x02" Comment="1"> (change comment from & to 1)
I still get this result below.
Nevermind. This is not important. I will find a workaround.
I found this page that shows the ScanCode is correctly linked to each key. The mapping between the physical keys and the scancodes is the same for a US international English keyboard.
Using the unused (in English) letters J and U, I also find that a change made to the xml is not read by the Keyboard Settings dialog. Now I'm even more curious and will look into this.
By the way just for completeness, am I right in assuming that your Windows OS is French language?
