Summary0012851: User-defined 1-key shortcuts called when writing in text frame
DescriptionAs there are no shortcuts for importing a vector file, and the 'v' key is not taken by any shortcut, I decided to set it this way.

But when writing in a text frame, and pressing 'v', instead of writing the expected 'v' in the frame, it triggers the "Open" dialog for a vector file. This should not happen, and shortcuts which outputs printable characters should be disabled when in a text frame.

For instance, when pressing 'i' (image frame) or 't' (text frame), the associated shortcuts are not triggered when in a text frame (you have to get out of it first, which is a really acceptable compromise to the simplicity of 1-key shortcuts). This should be the same for user-defined shortcuts.
Steps To Reproduce1/ In "File" > "Preferences" > "Keyboard shortcuts", Set Key 'v' to "File > Get Vector File" action.

2/ create a text frame, and go in "Edit Contents in Frame" mode.

3/ Type a 'v' (there can be any text before, it does not matter).

Result: the shortcut is triggered.
Expected result: the letter 'v' should be inserted into the text frame at current cursor position.
Additional InformationTested on both Scribus 1.4.3.svn and 1.5.0.svn. Same issue everywhere.

I can't get the shortcut to work outside (or inside of text frame, which doesn't make sense).

1) setup shortcut for Get Vector as V
2) type V on canvas
Result: nothing

I did at the time I wrote this bug report. I'll test again on updated svn code, if you want. In any case, one or the other, this is not the expected result. :-)

This happens with other shortcuts too while editing Text Frame content on canvas.

A possible solution could be disabling shortcuts with single character/key or Shift+single character/key (capital letters) while in modeEdit and only allow Ctrl/Alt or any other modifier defined shortcut.

This just started to occur for me after updating to r21215
1) open text frame in edit mode
2) type 'v'
Result: Open Vector file dialog

utnik,
MrB made a 1.5.2svn nightly recently at https://sourceforge.net/projects/scribus/files/scribus-svn/1.5.2.svn/Scribus15xNightly-160420.dmg
Can you test ?

Defintely there. Only happens in a text frame when in edit mode. Not in the text editor.

V is not a default shortcut in r21240.
But if you define it as get vector file, you cannot type v in text frame.
Like ctrl + I there should be a separation between senseful and senseless commands - at ctrl + I you get in a text frame only text files to choose as supported, in an image frame only image files.
So "get vector file" should be disabled at all frames but images ;-)

I've disabled 'v' as a shortcut for Open Vector Dialog and the issue ceases. This isn't an ideal workaround :(

uploaded 0001-Disable-fileImportVector-in-edit-mode.patch will disable Import Vector dialog to appear in edit mode. It does not solve bigger problem with single key shortcut.
