Keyboard Shortcut for Train Grid Interface

Post by Melerion »

TL;DR
Keyboard Shortcut for Train Grid Interface
Why ?
Every other information panel has its own shortcut, opening the train interface with a key press would be so much easier than having to find the button with the mouse.

I use the train panel often. It is very inconvenient to be unable to assign a keyboard shotcut to open the Trains panel/menu.

Does a mod exist to fix this issue? Will this be fixed in an update?

Add hotkey to open train menu

Post by wesg »

merged with older topic — ssilk
TL;DR
The train menu is helpful and it should be available via a hotkey

What ?
The new (1.1.8) train menu layout is very helpful.

Being able to access the train and station list with a hotkey would make it more accessible.

Train Panel shortcut(s)

Post by Azethoth »

Add keyboard shortcuts to bring up the new Train panel tabs
The new train interface is a big upgrade. Can we get keyboard shortcuts for the individual tabs?

Two new panel shortcuts
Both tabs are useful, let us bring them up easily like all other panels please.
If the panel remembers the last used tab, or even its scroll state only one shortcut would be needed.
Why ?
It makes no sense that the train panel has no shortcut. Please fix this oversight.

[1.1.19] Train GUI shortcut

Post by kestinarf »

The new train GUI is amazing, but when one is working on the train network, one is constantly opening and closing the train GUI.
And going in that corner with the mouse is time consuming.
Having the possibility to assign a keyboard shortcut would be extremely helpful.

Sounds good. I could see it being useful as Shift-T, or even unbound by default.

In fact, it would be great to have two hotkeys: One to bring up the train view, and one to bring up the station view.

sounds paradoxical, but to save on the number of hotkeys that i have defined, maybe THREE hotkeys could be useful ?
one hotkey for "open last view" (same function as pushing the train button, so that by default i can always use the same button or hotkey) and two other hotkeys (unassigned by default) to directly go to the train or station tab (for those people who want more direct shortcuts)


ps: with the huge amount of vanilla hotkeys and (using a lot of mods) another huge amount of mod hotkeys, I'm always annoyed a bit having to scroll to the end of the hotkey list and/or close all the other sections of the hotkey list every time when i need to check or change some hotkeys. would it make sense to have separate lists (one for vanilla hotkeys and one for mod hotkeys, maybe even with separate sections for each mod), and/or maybe have all the sections shrunken when opening the hotkey list(s) or remember which sections were opened/shrunken when last using the list(s) ?

I feel like these are really substantially different suggestions: the new train GUI is nothing like the old one.
