I started to use this app several days ago. I really like it so far, it is very clean and works like intended. Props to the devs, making such a smooth App is hard work!
I started to run into one issue tho.
The Default Shortcuts (STRG + ALT + [Q,E,A,D,W,S]) conflict with my US international keyboard layout. Typing these special characters (ä,å,é,á,ß,ð) is therefore impossible right now, without accidentaly triggering the Apps shortcuts. That is a real bummer, because the shortcuts are really nice to have on Windows.
Changing my keyboard layout is sadly not an option. My first language is german, so I do need a lot of the special characters stated above, but I also write a lot of english therefore I have the US international keyboard. It allows me to write in both languages with ease, without changing the layout constantly in the operating system.
1. Changing the Default Shortcuts
This solution might be the most “straightforward” to do. Changing the default shortcuts to other keys so it wouldn’t interfere anymore. Thinking of characters like STRG + ALT + (F,G,H,J,K) on the US international keyboard, because they are not assigned to any special characters.
I. The new shortcuts could interfere with other layouts/special characters.
Would need further research and thorough testing.
II. The new shortcuts wouldn’t be so conveniently placed, like the current layout.
2. Adding the possibility for Custom Shortcuts
This would take more time, but might be worth the effort. Being able to set the shortcuts by yourself. Like having the described function and being able to assign your own shortcut to it. This would not only fix the keyboard layout issue. It would make FXSound compatible with workflows of other Apss, that might have their own set of shortcuts. Personally I would prefer this solution, but I do understand that every new feature needs a lot of effort in regards to development.
I. A big investment development wise.
Hope I could get the issue across and my layman solutions to it.
Have a nice day!
