Custom shortcuts in Script Editor


Is there a way to change the shortcuts in the script editor ?

I would like to change the Ctrl+Shift+R to something else because I find it quite difficult to do with one hand only (it makes my wrist hurt :woozy_face: :face_with_head_bandage:)

Thank you very much

@LPUoO Unfortunately, all the Script Editor keyboard shortcuts are hard-coded. But you can hack it. Create the following file in your folder:

// Define menu items whose shortcuts we want to override.
var keyMap = new java.util.HashMap();
keyMap.put("Run selected code", "ctrl alt P");
// ... define more shortcut overrides here ...
// For shortcut syntax, see here:

function hackTextEditor(evt) {
	if (evt.getID() != java.awt.event.WindowEvent.WINDOW_OPENED) return;
	var w = evt.getWindow();
	if (!(w instanceof org.scijava.ui.swing.script.TextEditor)) return;

	// A Script Editor window just opened! Walk its menus.
	for (var m = 0; m < w.getJMenuBar().getMenuCount(); m++) {
		var menu = w.getJMenuBar().getMenu(m);
		for (var i = 0; i < menu.getItemCount(); i++) {
			var item = menu.getItem(i);
			if (item == null) continue;
			var label = item.getLabel();
			if (keyMap.containsKey(label)) {
// Register our shortcut hacker with the AWT subsystem.
java.awt.Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().addAWTEventListener(hackTextEditor, java.awt.AWTEvent.WINDOW_EVENT_MASK);

This code installs a listener when Fiji starts up that responds to new Script Editor windows opening, scanning for matching commands and overriding their shortcuts as desired.
