Go to File->Preferences, Input tab, and under an appropriate subcategory such as “Screen -> Screen (Global)”, click “Add New” for as many screen layouts as you want shortcuts for. I used Ctrl-Alt-F1 through F4 as those seem not to be taken.
For each one, input “screen.set_layout” in the text field on the left and hit enter.
To the right of “layoutNamme” that appears below, input the name of the screen layout you want the key combo to switch to, from the pull-down list at the top (“Default”, “UV Editing”, “Animation”, “Compositing”, “Game Logic”, “Scripting”, or your own custom-made layouts).
[QUOTE=kilbee;3156207]let me just plug this here, hope you dont mind https://github.com/kilbee/kbPIEs[/]
But i see yours was already working. This script does the same except users dont need to copy paste that code. I believe thats the only difference right?
Your setup is quite nice with that addon info. But i dont get the naming there, first it thought adding the names there would automatically make those short cuts. I think we could link these 2 together so the user only needs to input corresponding names and hotkey and then they would be added. That would be the ideal solution.
I looked at the preferences and adding a keycode is wm.keyitem_add() I we then add the name from the name field and key input field the user wont need todo anything coding themselves
Yep, exactly the reason I plugged it, I was hoping someone would pick it up since I’m quite busy atm and I do think setup should be much easier (like setting up layouts from enums, not typing, etc.).
And also checking if there is any interest in this - because the pie menu from my link is enough for me - one time setup and simple switching… I do however realise that this tedious setup is scaring off people from using it, so my question is: is it worth improving? Would anybody use this?
If so i will keep it in mind as a ‘todo’.
