Keyboard spacing in Space Center with modifiers



  • Hi there. Recently learned that after selecting a glyph in Space Center, the left right sidebearings can be controlled with the arrow keys with Option and Command respectively. This is a very useful feature!

    In using it, I found that using Shift as a modifier was changing the LSB by increments of 10 (shift+option+arrow) while changing the RSB by increments of 100 (shift+command+arrow). Presumably, this is because command is an increment modifier as well. So there seems to be some overlap in functionality with the command key. Is there a setting I can manipulate to solve this?

    TIA,
    Ryan

    shortcuts in space center on glyph selection:

    • arrow left/rigth --> move left side bearing
    • alt + arrow left/rigth --> move right side bearing

    + shift: increments of 10
    + shift + command: increments of 100

    • ctrl + command + arrow left/rigth --> move in his own white space
    • ctrl + shift + arrow left/rigth --> move in his own white space by increments of 10
    • ctrl + shift + command + arrow left/rigth --> move in his own white space by increments of 100

    (increments values are set in the preferences)



  • Ah ok, great. Good to know the command is still a modifier and not access to RSB as I had thought for some reason. Thanks, Frederik.
