Stringed (chained) keyboard shortcuts (lp:#1616154)
Original report created by Art (diametrix)
The following feature, if implemented, would tremendously speed up board layout. - this is more complicated but would simplify the interface significantly. I'm talking about Altium style (if they still use them, it's been a while since the last time I used it) For example to place a via using this approach you would pres "P" and then "V" or to place a track "P" and then "T" or to add a zone you would press "A" and "Z" etc. There are basic groups for the first layer of the shortcut which a lot of objects use, such as Add, Place, Switch etc. It is easy to memorize the shortcuts because each shortcut is intuitive and is alliterated with the name of the action taken. Currently to access some functions you need to go 3 or 4 levels deep in the context menu.
