create keyboard shortcut for "Relative to" in "Align and Distribute"

Postby bene86 » Fri Jun 15, 2018 10:55 pm


I like keyboard shortcuts a lot since they allow me to save so much time (and nerves). Currently, I have to create lots of graphics in Inkscape with lots of alignment stuff. Alignment with the keyboard shortcuts on the keypad (align top/bottom/center...) works perfectly for me. There is just one problem: I really often have to change "Relative to" between "Last selected" and "Page". Therefore, I always have to open the Align and Distribute view and change it appropriately with the mouse. I did not manage to give that a keyboard shortcut. Can anybody tell me, how this can be accomplished?

I wish I had that too. There was a bug report about some bugs relating this, but I can't seem to find it now.

But you can submit a new wishlist item, we're still on Launchpad:
