Use the spacebar instead of Alt for triggering the VR menu


#1

Using the Alt key prevents it from being used by scripts. For example, the current edit.js menu items such as Edit > Export Entities shortcut of Meta + Ctrl + E cannot be changed to be Ctrl + Alt + E instead - the “Meta” key is unknown to Windows users so Alt would be a natural alternative if it could be used.

Perhaps the spacebar could be used to trigger the VR menu instead of the Alt key?

Complete agree that ALT is a wrong key. But if space is a good one ? Btw, can the vr-menu not moved to a button on the hand controller, so it’s complete moved away from the keyboard. Make more sense for me to choice that option. If i would use VR-Headset the keyboard is 1.5 meters away from me and behind me, as example.

As long there’s a controller with buttons…

Unfortunately, the vive controller is already crowded.

  • One button is reserved for both controllers is for SteamVR (the lowest menu).
  • Left Trackpad is used for movement, while the right trackpad is used for rotation.
  • Analog Triggers are used for interactions, while the grab buttons are required to hold to “equip something”.
  • Top button for both controllers is used to open menu, which I cannot interact with even with the Handcontroller Interaction Script

When I get the chance Ill try to experiment some more with 3D Ui that is intractable with the controllers.
