Shortcuts for File already exists Dialog [DONE]

Post by pwu » Sat May 15, 2021 3:22 pm

Hi,

is there any way to assign shortcuts for File already exists Dialog Buttons? Just to keep hand on keyboard and don't use the mouse. Like S for Skip, A for Abort etc. I saw Shift key was added for Apply for all option - it's really very useful, thank you. It will nice do everything with the keyboard (and also use Shift-S to skip All files).

Thank you and have a nice day!

Hi,

Not shortcuts per se, but right now it's possible to respond with arrow keys, i.e. without any mouse usage.
Just ensure that the checkbox is enabled in System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts -> Use keyboard navigation to move focus between controls.

Adding explicit shortcuts there would be also useful, yes.

I had this option enabled, but keyboard navigation not worked. I've renabled it and now it works! It's really helpful, thank you!

Done, I've added these, following the existing scheme with Control as a modifier:
^O - Overwrite
^S - Skip
^K - Keep Both
^P - Append
^A - Apply to all
