Matt's Tips: PSoC Creator Shortcut Key Bindings
One of the most common questions I get regarding PSoC Creator goes something like the following:
Why doesn't [Ctrl+key] do [some function] like it does in [some other environment]?
Creator, like many programs, will allow you to set up your own keyboard shortcuts. In spite of this, I get that comment often enough that I must conclude we haven't made this ability apparent in our documentation (the cohesiveness and integration of our documentation will be the subject of another blog post). The PSoC Creator team is taking steps to make the key customization process more visible. Until then, my good buddy in the global applications group, Naman Jain, has written a Knowledge Base (KB) article on the subject. You can read the full KB article here: http://www.cypress.com/?id=4&rID=91821
For convenience, I will include the first screen shot in the article because I think that will be enough for many of you reading this. Essentially, keyboard shortcut customization in Creator works the same as in many other Windows applications. The only thing you might find tricky is finding the right place to rightclick. In this case, just rightclick in the gray banner area at the top where the menus are. See the top arrow shown in the screen shot below.
Also, my PSoC Creator compatriot, Robyn Weil, posted a PDF with a partial list of shortcuts. See here http://www.cypress.com/?app=forum&id=2492&rID=88740
So how many of you have used this capability? How many of you didn t even know it was there? Hit me up in the comments.
