Editing shortcut icons

Shortcut icons are displayed on the on-screen keyboard. A separate set of shortcut icons is displayed for each application.

Since applications use different mechanisms for storing shortcut icons, it is impossible to detect them automatically. So the Comfort Software Group uses its own sets of shortcut icons for each application. You can configure shortcut icons for any application (or Windows).

To edit shortcut icons, open the Settings dialog box, select the Shortcut Icons item, and click the Edit shortcut icons button.

By default, the Win* icon file is edited. To edit a different icon file, click the File menu, and then click Open.

Start the application you want to create icons for and select the name of its executable file in the File name drop-down menu. After that, the Main window class name and Application name fields will be filled in automatically.

The File name and Main window class name fields are used to determine which application is active. You can specify both fields or only one of them.

The Application name field is used for information about a specific application. Enter your details (for example, “Awesome App by John Doe ([email protected])”).

To add a new icon, specify the keyboard shortcut in the Key combination field, or select it on the on-screen keyboard.

After that, you can add the icon in the following ways: load it from a file, capture the screen, or paste an image from the clipboard. If you add an icon by capturing the screen, fill all the area that you do not need with the Fuchsia color, and select that color in the Transparent color field. To see if the icon is good, try selecting another style (for instance, black).

Finally, you can specify a hint to be displayed when you hover the mouse pointer over the key with the icon on the on-screen keyboard. You can use only one language, preferably English.

Note: All files with sets of shortcut icons are stored in the Icons subfolder.
