Jump to the parentpatch [keyboard shortcut]


#1

Hi

I’m using a British keyboard layout and the incredibly useful keyboard shortcut “jump to the parentpatch” with ‘Ctrl+^’ does not appear to work for me.

Any Brits found a way to make this work?

indeed. for betas<=31 this is mapped to keycode 220 which is german for ^. for your keyboard this should be the key with the <> characters.

for ergonomical reasons for betas>31 i have changed that shortcut to always listen to scancode 41 which represents the key below ESC, left of 1 and above TAB. now i agree this is a rather unorthodox thing to do but that functionality needs to be close to ctrl+tab no matter what country you’re from.
