I don't know about you, but every time I am trying to do analytical work in Mma, it is rather difficult/cumbersome for me to type the following, here specifically for
It would be really cool, convenient, and neat if we could easily make some shortcuts like we do here!
\[DoubleStruckCapitalN] would be extra neat.
I know that I could manually input all of my desired shortcuts for
\[DoubleStruckLetters] literally line-by-line into the
KeyEventTranslations.tr file, but it is easy to make a small mistake in syntax along the way, and I am very very very VERY lazy and I like the automated aspect of Mathematica!
Pure (function) and simple, I really don't feel like we should have to manually add this, at least line-by-line, to the
KeyEventTranslations.tr file, which is located here on Windows 10:
From which you should copy over (before making any modifications) to your
$UserBaseDirectory located here, again on Windows 10, noting that you likely must add the
Windows folder if this is your first time modifying the
How can we do this?
Some Useful References/Custom Shortcuts:
@b3m2a1's answers here are especially useful, though they do not illustrate a nice, easy, and automated way to make all of the alphas one would want to use, though they do provide some exceptionally keen methods to add new menus & other useful items:
- Best way to add KeyEvents and faster Quit
- What are all the possible menu edits?
- How can I customize my menus without reloading MenuSetup.tr?
- Custom FrontEndToken calls
While this is an edit after the self-answer, I do not understand the methods that @b3m2a1 uses for these automations, though perhaps they are willing to answer this with an update based on the current self-answer's automated method and force me to not be able to accept my own self-answer [;
tl;dr neither of the currently proposed methods are complete, teamwork is key, this can be very beneficial to accomplish with ease and simplicity, please help!
5/5 hits! YOU SUNK MY BATTLESHIP! D; Look's like @b3m2a1's package is worthy of this being marked a duplicate, though you won't find this addition/functionality available there (yet! [;) when it is, I will mark it down on the post there, and then here also. Previous complaints of a prideful programmer:
Kind of confused why this is being closed instead of answered, as this method is not elsewhere, and I think being able to add other custom mappings internally has been requested for a while, only to show the most basic of modifications...Can any of you provide a good answer to this? This is immensely useful for me so far...would love to see this automated! So far, while @b3m2a1 has some really, and I do mean really, really great QnAs that touch on this subject, there is still not a method like this available! Please don't close this useful & currently well-researched post, instead maybe someone can expand on this or show us the answer! Pretty please with bounties on top?
