Chapter VIII. Customising Bluefish

We have already seen how to customize the quick bar, the Custom menu, and the External menu. Here are some other possibilities, most of them being made through the Edit preferences panel, accessible from the Preferences... icon in the main tool bar or from the Edit → Preferences menu item.

1. Modifying shortcut keys

Many menu entries are accessible via key combination, also called a shortcut. For example, pressing the Ctrl+S keys saves the current file to disk. If available, shortcut key combinations are shown on the right of the menu entry.

To add or change a shortcut, move the mouse over the desired menu entry, and press the key combination you would like to use. Immediately this combination will show up on the right of the menu entry.

Here's a shortcut added to the File → Open URL... menu item:

Figure VIII.1. Adding a Shortcut to a Menu Item

To remove a shortcut, press the backspace key when you move the mouse over a menu entry to remove the shortcut.

To save the shortcut key combinations for later Bluefish sessions, use Edit → Save Shortcut Keys. This will store the settings in the ~/.bluefish/menudump_2.


Man1 note.png If you want to restore the default combinations simply remove this file and restart Bluefish.

Man1 warning.png Be aware that if you give a menu entry the same shortcut as another one, the shortcut of the latter will be lost.
