Description Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2012-02-13 14:33:18 UTC
MD should support displaying partially-composed keybindings, e.g. Cmd-+ instead of Cmd-shift-=.

Currently we fully decompose keys when parsing them from the keybindings file. This means we always display the decomposed version. We should instead display the variant that was parsed. We'd still need to use full decomposition when capturing new bindings from the user in the keybindings editor, since there isn't a way to identify which composed combinations to use in this way.

The best solution would be to only decompose the keybindings when matching them, instead of when loading them. The method Mono.TextEditor.GtkWorkarounds.MapKeys can decompose key combinations into the set of all valid decomposed, partially composed and fully composed variants, which could all be used for much better matching.
