Not all keyboard shortcuts are changeable?

Question

Hello everyone.

I see on the  web Cakewalk documentation that  on keyboard shortcut list there is shortcut for "Show/hide ProChannel"  >> CTRL+I - works fine.

But In Cakewalk keyboard shortcuts I cant see this position.

Would  be nice  to change CTRL +I for something easier (manageable with one hand) as i use this option very often. 

Beside this one  I have found many other shortcuts that exist but are not customisable. Can I unlock them somehow?

I don't believe so.

Not all functions are exposed for (re)mapping.

That said, AutoHotkey or something similar is a skill worth picking up.

For example, here is the AutoHotkey script that maps the (currently unbound) F2 function key to CTRL+i in CbB (and only CbB)

Quote

#If WinActive("ahk_exe i)Cakewalk.exe") 
F2::^i
#If


When CbB has focus, press the F2 key and CbB receives CTRL+i.

I opened up Customisation | Keyboard Shortcuts (Advanced) and I was able to find “Show/hide ProChannel” under the Area “Console View” rather than “Global bindings”

From there, you can assign another key binding to “Show/hide ProChannel”

This function toggles display of the ProChannel in the console view not the Inspector.

CTRL+i toggles PC display in the inspector.

This is a good one. Although works only in console view it does make things easier than navigating with mouse cursor to the  tiny arrow.

Thanks - already assigned my custom shortcut to it.

 

And regarding Inspector...

Thanks once again

Time spent learning AutoHotkey can save a lot of time and keystrokes in the long run.

Definitely.  I use AutoHotkey scripts all the time.

Same goes for CAL and Studioware Panels - but that's a topic for separate thread.

Ok, Im in AutoHotkey club now 

But Im having problem with my short cut for Inspector pane 

I want to make Ctrl+Tab AutoHotkey do what Ctrl+I in CbB does and Im trying to use your template (just replacing your F2 with my Ctrl+Tab) but it does not work (I got an error)

My sript is: 

#If WinActive("ahk_exe i)Cakewalk.exe") 
^{Tab}::^i
#If

 

Error message says: Line Text^{Tab}:: ^i

What do I do wrong?

Can you please help @scook

^{Tab}::^i

Remove the curly braces.

	^Tab::^i
	

For more info review the Hotkeys section under Usage and Syntax in the autohotkey help.

Also make sure 

	SetTitleMatchMode RegEx
	

is somewhere above

	#If WinActive("ahk_exe i)Cakewalk.exe")
	

because this line uses a regular expression.
