Unit Keyboard Shortcuts

Creating units could go faster if the user only had to:

  1. Press the key of the first letter of the unit (e.g. B for Branch)
  2. A menu appears, with all standalone units starting with B. These units should be ordered alphabetically but start with the most common one selected.
  3. By using the scroll wheel, the user can switch the selection.
  4. When clicking, the node is created at mouse position.

This is strongly inspired from the great UX of the ShaderForge keyboard shortcut menu.

Bolt Version:
Unity Version:
Scripting Backend:
.NET Version (API Compatibility Level):

Could go as far as: 1 on the keyboard + Click creates a float, "2"+Click creates a vector2, T+Click triggers, etc.

Also find very useful the idea of the first letter being pressed triggers the search box right away.


That's pretty much exactly the idea. :) But with lots of small options like these.

So when's this scheduled for? :)
