Summary0013990: Node Editor lacks keyboard shortcuts
DescriptionWhen editing a complex shape it is a chore to have to mouse over to the Node Editor dialog and back to the shape every time you want to change between functions, e.g. moving nodes vs. moving control points.

Having keyboard shortcuts to switch between functions would make editing a lot easier. For instance:
* "N" - Move Nodes
* "C" - Move Control Points
* "A" - Add Node
etc. etc.

Maybe "Tab" could switch between "Move Nodes" and "Move Control Points" too.

It would also be much nicer if single keys could be used rather than a CTRL/ALT+KEY combination (the dialog is modal so these shortcuts shouldn't affect anything else).
TagsNo tags attached.

Agreed. Other suggestions:
+ = addition mode (add a node)
- = deletion mode (delete a node)
