P: Errors in keyboard shortcuts shown in Help windows

The Help windows displaying keyboard shortcuts still have many errors. While a large number were fixed in LR 12.1, many were not, and some new errors were introduced.

 

The Any Shortcut plugin's Analyze > Analyze All TranslatedStrings Files generates the file "errors.txt" (attached) containing all these errors. It should be run before every new LR release. The plugin's option Correct Help Keys In TranslatedStrings Files will automatically fix all of the errors.

 

I've summarized the errors below, with explanations for what's gone wrong and how to fix them.

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

The help keys for shortcuts containing Delete (Mac) / Backspace (Win) need to be specially encoded -- they should refer to Delete or the localized version of Delete (if there is one).  LR will automatically translate that to Backspace (or the localized version of Backspace) on Win.

 

Many instances of help keys incorrectly contain Backspace instead of Delete. This causes Backspace to appear in the Mac Help rather than Delete:

The following corrections need to be made to these occurrences:

 

$$$/LocationShortcuts/DeleteGPSLocation/Key

$$$/LocationShortcuts/DeleteAllLocationMetadata/Key

 

US: Backspace => Delete

DE: Rücktaste => Löschen

ES: Retrocesco => Eliminar

FR: Retour arrière => Arrière

IT: Backspace => Canc

JP: Backspace => Delete

KR: 백스페이스 => Delete    (1)

NO: Backspace or Tilbake => Slett

NL: Backspace => Delete

PL: Backspace => Usuń

BR: Backspace => Delete

RU: Backspace => Удалить

SE: Backsteg => Ta Bort

TH: Backspace => Delete

CN: Backspace => Delete

TW: Backspace => Delete

 

(1) "백스페이스" is Korean for Backspace according to Google. The English word "Delete" should be used to be consistent with other Korean help-key entries.

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

These help keys use the English name for the key rather than the translated name of the key used in other help keys:

 

IT:

$$$/AgDevelopShortcuts/Auto_Tone/Key

$$$/AgDevelopShortcuts/DevelopViewOptions/Key

$$$/AgSlideshow/Help/Shortcuts/Show/Preview/Key

$$$/AgDevelopShortcuts/Show_selected_images_in_a_slideshow/Key

Return => Возврат

Возврат is used 2 times.

 

SE: $$$/AgDevelopShortcuts/Hide_panels/Key

Tab => Tabb

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Other errors:

 

FR: $$$/AgLayoutShortcuts/GoToPreviousPage/Key

FR: $$$/AgLayoutShortcuts/HideSidePanels/Key

FR:

$$$/AgDevelop/Localized/Mask/Key/CircularGradient

$$$/AgDevelop/Localized/Mask/Key/ColorRange

$$$/AgDevelop/Localized/Mask/Key/LuminanceRange

Maiuscole => Maiusc

"Maiusc" is used 73 times, "Maiuscole" just 3 times.  Google Translate says Maiusc means Shift, while Maiuscole means Upper Case.

 

JP: $$$/AgDevelopShortcuts/Create_Virtual_Copy/Key

Shift + Command => Command + Shift

LR's convention is to put Command first.

 

RU: $$$/AgLibrary/Help/Shortcuts/RotateRightKey

Command + [ => Command + ]

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

A backslash \ in TranslatedStrings should be encoded as ^L ("Lightroom Classic SDK Programmers Guide", page 150). These occurrences are not correctly encoded:

 

$$$/LocationShortcuts/ToggleFilterBar/Key:

US, IT, JP, KR, NO, NL, PL, BR, RU, SE, TH, CN, TW

 

$$$/LocationShortcuts/ToggleFilterBar/Mac/Key:

US, IT, JP, KR, NO, NL, PL, BR, RU, SE, TH, CN, TW

 

$$$/AgLibrary/Help/Shortcuts/HideShowFilterBarKey:

NB, RU, TH

 

$$$/AgLibrary/Help/Shortcuts/Mac/HideShowFilterBarKey:

NB, RU, TH

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

About 150 help keys have inconsistent spacing around the "+". The convention is to use one space on each side of the "+", but many don't follow that rule, e.g.

 

Command + Shift+  J

Command+F

 

It looks sloppy and careless:
