Key Bindings: Modifier Only *Double* Keypress

ar-echo 5 years ago 0

The ability to assing a "modifier only double keypress" as a key binding.


ex:

"keys": ["control+control"] = Typing the control key twice-in-a-row executes the command.


This would be really handy for the Control Palette.

It's a nice way to get another "easy target" keyboard shortcut after all of the "space+___" shortcuts have been taken.


I first saw this feature in Quicksilver and it's very convenient.
