Users seem to have a problem with interpreting our keyboard shortcuts (see for example here) because Windows and Linux’s “Control” key is mapped to “Command” key on Mac. Qt automatically generates shortcut name based on operating system (Ctrl or ⌘) and we could replace hardcoded “Ctrl” string with platform-specific string in all of our modules (added an issue to track this), but what to do with the documentation?
- Option A: Use “Ctrl” and describe somewhere that on Mac you need to hit ⌘ if you read “Ctrl” in the documentation. Are Mac of multiplatform software got used to this? For example, I see that this is done in the Blender manual.
- Option B: Replace shortcuts such as Ctrl+A by Ctrl/⌘+A. Would this be clear enough for Mac users? Would it be acceptable (wouldn’t it cause confusion) for Windows users?
