shortcut for open original "bpatcher"

October 5, 2009 | 7:56 pm

Could someone tell if it’s possible, and then maybe how, I can make a keyboard shortcut to Object -> Open original "foo", which is reachable from the contextual menu?

Thanks

Maybe you don’t need to, you can use the Modify Read-Only feature from the File menu, MRO does have a keyboard shortcut.

Thanks ej, but I’m not sure I’m following you. I thought "Modify Read-Only" was a command I could use when I allready had a view of the patcher open.

What I want to do is: select a bpatcher, and press a keycommand which opens the original patcher in a new view, editable. I’m using a pen-tablet, and I can customize a lot off shortcuts for menu-commands, but I’m not sure how to reach the contextual-menu commands.

Sorry I miss the bpatcher part… It’s not possible to do that, the contextual menu are hard coded.

if you can do keyboard macros (with the pentablet or some other app?) you could try this as a workaround:

right click
"o"
arrow right
enter

I didn’t know about MRO. That’s going to be a big help and streamline a few things. Can’t believe I missed it all this time.
